In my opinion, Corral de la Moreria has the best Flamenco in Madrid! I've been studying abroad in Madrid for the past 4 months, and trust me, have visited my share of Flamenco Tablaos- and none compare to Corral. The optional dinner is delicious, the dancers are phenomenal, and the atmosphere is very exciting and lively. Tickets are either 32 or 35 euros, make sure to make reservations ahead of time! : )
Dress Code: Casual, but you can dress up if you're in the mood as some are : )
This is probable the cheapest flamenco show in Madrid, and not bad. It is located in a street running parallel to the boulevard La Castellana.
The price is very cheap, about 15 euros including a drink, while other flamenco shows in Madrid such as Café de Chinitas, Torres Bermejas, or El Corral de la Pacheca will charge you at least 25 or 30 euros for the show.
Dress Code: no special requirements for dresses
Great place to see a wonderful flamenco show in a very intimate atmosphere, it really is mind boggling, so much passion, power and artistry, just loved it. We dined there and the food was very good. What a surprise when the show finished and we saw the famous singer Diego el Cigala and the guitarist Montoyita having a drink at the bar with their flamenco friends.

If you´ve ever had the slightest interest in flamenco, you should make it a point to get here while in Madrid. It appeals to all your senses with its authentic setting, enthusiastic atmosphere, talented dancers, and delicious food!
Dress Code: Casual but keep in mind that Spain´s definition of casual is a little classier than that of the US
Cardamomo has become my flamenco venue of choice, for the flamenco here is one of the best in Madrid, fantastic and authentic, not aimed at tourism but at the lovers of Flamenco; I guess that is the reason one sees flamenco musicians among the public. It is also a fun bar, after the last show, very mixed public: locals, foreigners, flamenco artists. Just love it!!!
I really enjoyed this!!! I forget how I got this tip but a friend of mine who spent some time in Madrid was also given the same tip. Supposedly this is a place where people who perform Flamenco hang out.
You pay a cover and that gives you the show and a drink on the house. I recommend eating something before especially if you don't eat meat.
There is a menu so you can order Tapas during the show, but they were all with meat, so I couldn't eat anything until afterwards.
The show was great. Filled with passion! I can't wait to see another performance.
Dress Code: It is a little formal inside. I wouldn't wear jeans, but a nice pair of pants would be appropriate. A jacket wouldnýt be necessary but would be ok.
Make a reservation so that you are assured seats. We had to wait until the next show because the early one was full.
Los Gabrieles has Live Flamenco Music played on Monday and Tuesday nights. Usually starting around 11:00 p.m. Just visiting this place to marvel at the amazing tile work is worth the stop. No dancing, just guitar, voice and "box" with rhythmic hand clapping. Free admission
Dress Code: No dress code
Whether you chose a more touristy version or some of the more low-key local options ensure that include flamenco in your Madrid itinerary. This uniquely Spanish dance form truly captures the vibrance and energy of the Iberian peninsula. Most venues offer dinner with the ticket as well as a drink only option. The option with dinner tends to be over priced so I recommend looking for a well-recommended tasca before making your way to the show.
There are several venues in Madrid and your hotel concierge or front desk should be able to recommend and book a reservation for you.
If you wnat to heard good and free Flamenco Music you must to to CARDAMOMO(calle echecaray - near Puerta del Sol) on wednesdays and Sundays) and LOS GABRIELES in the same street on tuesdays. In those days they have alive music. And some times even dance show!
Those places you can know spanish peolple and even original gipsyies!
It a good place to have real good fun!
If you go to the second show which starts at about 11 you may be lucky enough to see one of the real stars of Spanish Flamenco. You will notice that there are only tourists at the first show but that Spaniards are at the second. Also during the second show there is only a 2 drink minimum in addition to the cover which saves you having to eat the appaling food. This is a pricey place about E25 in but is really worth it.
Live Flamenco every Wednesday night. Music starts at 22:30 (11:30 p.m.). Free admission.
