About the Show

The Tablao de Carmen owes its name to the famous flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya, who was born in the gypsy quarter of Somorrostro. Amaya made her debut in 1929 for the King of Spain, Alfonso XIII, in the very same space which is now Tablao de Carmen. Both the location and the venue itself offer special details in addition to the flamenco show. Located within the Poble Espanyol de Montjuïc, one of Barcelona´s most important city parks constructed for the 1929 World Exhibition, the tablao shares its grounds with the Fuente Mágica, el Teatro Griego (Greek Theatre), and the Fundación Miró. This area has the feel of a village, with narrow streets, small shops and restaurants.

The venue itself is divided into three spaces, all of which create a typical Andalusian setting for the performances. The main area is the tablao, which accommodates approximately 150 persons and features multiple levels of seating as well as high ceilings. The decoration and colors in the performance area are inspired by the famous Feria de Abril in Seville. Next is an exact reproduction of a "patio cordobés", with all of the details and ambience of the typical homes of Cordoba in southern Spain. Finally, the Freiduría Tio Pepe serves a variety of seafood and other regional dishes along with the typical drink of any Feria: cold fino (sherry).

The Tablao de Carmen was founded in 1988, and features a mix of established and up and coming performers in the Spanish flamenco scene. Two nightly performances last approximately one hour, covering a variety of flamenco styles while individually focusing on the traditional elements of a flamenco performance: the music, song and dance. Ticket packages include the show with drink, tapas or dinner. Special discounts are available for children age 4 - 13 as well as groups. With a reservation in Tablao de Carmen you can enter the exhibition of "Poble Espanyol" for free from 16:00 (4pm) on the day of the show.

Reviews

Wow! This was my first Flamenco show ever, and it was incredibly emotive, I found myself holding back tears from the dancers' and singers' passionate performances. The show alone was spectacular, but the food included was delicious! We were giving small tapas dishes and a main course and drinks a part of a package, I would recommend there be more time for eating food as no one on our table was able to finish our main course because we were too busy watching the show. The servers were also kind enough to accommodate our requests through the evening. Fantastic experience overall, would highly recommend and would love to go again.
What a fantastic performance, for my first time at a flamenco show, this was definitely awesome! Having drinks and food (tapas) while watching the dancers, it’s just perfect. Also the dancers, singers and staff are fantastic and friendly, all the right element for a perfect evening !! A must try on your visit of Barcelona.
What an amazing, moving, and beautiful experience! We had a little difficulty finding the entrance to the square thanks to Google maps. So we were a little late, but didn’t miss anything. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The hostess, Mimo, was extremely warm and inviting. She took a few minutes to chat with us afterwards to tell us a little of the artists. The food was tasty and prepared very well. We had the 3 course meal. It’s a lot of food, but it was so good we finished it. The sangria was delicious! The atmosphere is warm and intimate. In all, we would go again. We highly recommend it if you are in Barcelona. Thank you for a memorable experience.
An amazing experience. Friendly, attentive staff and delicious food and drinks. The performance was spectacular! So much passion and energy! Well worth the visit. It's on our list to visit again when we return!
What I did not expect from this experience was the emotional part. The first part of the show, tears were uncontrollable escaping my eyes. The music, the dance, everything mixed together. I was absolutely amazed of what one can feel. The second part came with a little humor at first, also expressed through dance, then again with pain. Yes, it is an experience I will repeat everytime I visit Spain.
