About the Show

Venta El Gallo is located in the Sacromonte quarter of Granada, overlooking the Alhambra and Albaicin neighborhood. This quarter of the city is famous for its cave houses as well as widely known in the flamenco world as the birthplace of Zambra style flamenco. Zambra style flamenco is a typical form of flamenco often performed in gypsy weddings and is now a popular style for shows in the caves of Sacromonte. This Zambra style of flamenco is the highlight of the performances in Venta El Gallo.

The setting, in a traditional cave home within the Sacromonte quarter of Granada, is an important part of the atmosphere of the flamenco show in Venta El Gallo. Up to ten different performers take part in the two nightly shows, and seating along the whitewashed cave walls give spectators a close up view of some of the city's best flamenco artists. This is one of the best reasons to attend a flamenco show in the caves of Sacromonte: the proximity to the performance is contagious, where guests will feel the true passion and color of traditional flamenco. The cave itself holds up to one hundred forty people. There are options for the show with drink or a fixed price menu. The restaurant, serves typical and traditional cuisine from Granada, with an arab-andalusí influence.

Reviews

The food was very good though the selection lacking in variety. The show was nothing less than spectacular, with the performers singing and dancing in a passionate way that was moving. They even let me shoot my dslr but without using the flash. Great night !
Flamenco in a cave. We were recommended this show via our hotel and got front row seats. Amazing to watch the performers at such close range
According to our hotel concierge, this is the flamenco show to which the Spanish Government sent The Rolling Stones when they came to Grenada. Great for The Stones but imagine if Venta el Gallo’s manager said to the performers one afternoon, “put on a good show tonight. The Rolling Stones will be in the audience.” However, I am confident this group of excellent performers put on a great show that impressed even Stage-Strutting Mick, as they did our group. Why? Not only because they were a group of great dancers, a singer, and a guitarist, but because Flamenco was blues and soul before the Blues and Soul (it began in the 15th Century), which is visually apparent in the faces, contortions, perspiration, leg, arm, hand, and head movements, and heel-pounding of the dancers, the wailing, pleading, and chanting of the vocalist, and the plaintive chords of the guitarist, which Keith must have appreciated. Our hotel got us front row seats, which gave us a wonderful shoes-eye-view. But watch your drinks as the dresses twirl and the scarves fly. John Hornick, YouTube’s Chef’s Apprentice.
The dancers were great. The food is also very nice. I had the fish with potatoes and shishito peppers. The service could use some work. Everything was awesome
We booked a dinner show at El Gallo well in advance of our visit and were pleased to see that we were at the top of the list when we arrived. We were disappointed to find that our table was right at the back of the room and couldn’t see the stage very well. I pointed this out to the three ladies at the door who were very unhelpful. We couldn’t hear the guitar solo as our table was next to the kitchens, which was only separated by a curtain, therefore there was constant noise. We couldn’t see the feet of the performers and had to keep standing up. The final insult to us was when the male performer was on stage, the staff started to clear the tables making more noise. Also the ladies toilets had not been prepared for the evening. We would suggest that visitors went to one of the smaller flamenco caves, where you get a good view and a more intimate experience.
Great spot to take in some flamenco! The performers were absolutely top notch. My only critique was the layout, the foot work of a flamenco dance is pretty damn important I discovered upon this experience. And unless you’re seated in the front 2 rows, you’ll be looking over people’s heads and struggling to see it. That being said we still had a great time!
