About the Show

The history of the Tablao Flamenco 1911 dates back to 1911, and to this day it is known as the oldest tablao in the world. A flamenco space that began to bring the greatest artists in the flamenco world to step on its stage at the beginning of the 20th century, led by the legendary Antonio Chacón.

Over the decades, the Tablao Flamenco 1911 stage has been graced by internationally renowned flamenco figures such as Lola Flores, Imperio Argentina, Miguel de Molina, Juanito Valderrama and Dominguín. Their presentations have been enjoyed by both the residents of the capital and visitors from the rest of Spain and the world, making their nights eternal dream evenings. Hollywood figures such as Ava Gardner and Hemingway, and even monarchs such as Alfonso XIII, were received several times in this emblematic performance hall. It was forced to close its doors for reasons of force majeure, but it has always resurfaced to return with more force.

Today, after meticulous restoration and conservation, visitors can again admire its shining facades adorned with tiles created between 1915 and 1920 and protected by the Madrid City Council. Beautiful corners of the country's best-known capitals of Andalusia and Madrid, such as Seville. The architecture and atmosphere of this temple of flamenco have an unmistakably Andalusian touch, reminding viewers of the halls of the Alhambra palaces and the famous Albayzin neighborhood.

Under the artistic direction of Antonio Canales, the Tablao Flamenco 1911 opens a new page in its glorious history to receive the best dancers, singers and artists from the Spanish flamenco world.

Reviews

Came to the 7:30 pm show. The entire experience is about 1.5 hours from when you walk into the door and are given a choice of beverage before seating. I had a sangria and a champagne which was included. Husband had red wine. The kids sodas. The interior of the building is gorgeous with carvings, tiles and murals . You have the option of pre-purchasing a tapas plate that is delivered during the show. It consisted of a warm Spanish tortilla wedge, cheeses, meats and olives. The chairs are very close together. It is not necessary to sit in the premium rows. I would choose the area right behind that so you are not so intimately staring at the performers. Great way to start or finish the evening as they have many shows a night.
The show itself depends a lot on the dancers and the musicians. I have to admit that were not so lucky this time . The signers and the musicians were perfect, however I cannot say the same for the dancers. Dancing team consisted of 2 female dancers and one male. By far the best dancer was El Yiyo. Nieves was the name of one of the ladies dancers but she was really awful to be honest. I am definitely not a Flamenco expert but guys believe me...that was not flamenco. We reserved the show together with menu for 2 and the food was too simple for a show like this just 200m away from Puerta del Sol. The place however is very nice and stylish though, including the acoustic. I recommend the show but please make sure to check upfront who will be performing . Everything depends on the dancing team. And don’t order any food there, get a dinner in one of many nearby restaurants.
Very neat experience. There were more than one performance with the band. Live vocals and really enjoyed the atmosphere. A heritage building with ornamental carved wood. The oldest Tablao Flamenco in the world.
Amazing experience. Definitely worth a visit if you are coming down for the first time. The dancers and musicians are spectacular and superb. The effort put into the music and dance is worth the travel and cost.
I really recommend you to visit this show because its really amazing. Its only one hour but all this time you will feel like you are performing because these dancers give you so mich energy when they dance that deep inside you dance with them. We got a welcomed drink. They have areas where they make discounts for kiss and some where they dont. We were sitting in front of stage on the last row.. table 254-253. And i can tell you these tables were perfect. Only disadvantage of this place are chairs.... They are not very comfortable and if you are not average size you can probably not fit. Tables are very small but there you dont need a big pne but chairs you cannot even move them. But honestly during the show I forgot about everything.
I think this is an excellent choice if you are in Madrid with amazing dancers, great venue, attentive service and very good musicians too. I am not giving it a 5 because a year ago I was in Seville in a 'temple' of flamenco and while I greatly appreciated the virtuosity of the artists in this Tablao, I definitely got more deeply involved when I was in the other city, where you were almost overcome and overwhelmed by the emotions and the, well, duende! So it is a personal opinion of course which should not in any way detract from your visit, it's a lovely place and yes of course it isn't cheap but it's a capital city... If I can hazard another criticism I would have liked a slightly longer show, even only 5 more minutes with more of the three dancers working together (and sorry I didn't like the use of the saxophone, I know there is a reason but makes it too 20th century). Otherwise all good you'll love it and the artists are amazing.
