What people are saying about Madrid

I highly recommend this experience! The spectacle was very impressive. Between the music, the song and the dances, it was a very complete spectacle, in which we were immediately immersed. We were also able to taste a glass of white wine during the show. It was great !

Excellent show with 4 top-notch artists. Exciting, passionate, rhythmic ... I have seen other very good ones and this one seems to me the best of all. Not to be missed, in a very nice neighborhood as well. Visibility is great because the seats have tiers !!

Very impressive show. All the performers were very talented, and the nibbles offered at the bar were great. Not to be missed when in Madrid.

Fantastic, authentic and intimate Flamenco show. Such a wonderful evening, we are so pleased we found this show to go to!

Small intimate setting with great service and amazing dancing. Recommend for a quality hour of Flamenco.
