Watching flamenco is usually on the top of most people's Madrid "Must do" lists. Although it originated among the poor in the southern autonomous region of Andalusia in the 16th century, quality flamenco has since made its way north and to higher classes. Madrid has a number of flamenco performance venues ranging from free to expensive, casual to formal, and walk-ins welcome to reservations-only. As you can imagine, there's a flamenco venue for everyone! But one of our favorites is Casa Patas.
Casa Patas is part tavern, part restaurant, and part flamenco performance space that's casual but also true to Spanish food and culture like no other. Trabblrs can make a whole evening at Casa Patas by first ordering tapas at the bar or a meal of Spanish ox tail and lamb chops before heading in for the show. Described as a "temple of flamenco", Casa Patas attracts top flamenco talent to perform in its theater-like "tablao" or flamenco performance space. A show at Casa Patas will blow both passionate fans and novices away.
Meeting point: Outside Casa Patas. The closest Metro stops are Anton Martin and Tirso de Molina on the Blue / 1 Line.
Leaders, please check the show schedule before setting the time for the event. If you want to have drinks or dinner before-hand, set the event time to about an hour and a half earlier.
