The Flamenco Cordobes opened as early as in 1970 and showed the first flamenco shows in Barcelona. The Flamenco performed here is at the highest artistic level. A foundation makes sure that only well known names of the flamenco scene and over-average talented young artists perform in the about every 2-3 months changing shows. It's because of the foundation, that despite the international audience an original Flamenco is alleged in the Tablao Cordobes, that doesn't reprobate into an unambitious show.
The atmosphere is good here: dancers and musicians perform in a hall modelled on an andalusian vaulted cellar.
As dinner, you have a wide selection of a buffet with about 65 components of home made typical Spanish Andalusian kitchen. The drinks are served by extremely attentive waiters.
