Sevilla Flamenco Bars

Watching flamenco in a bar gives you a chance for a different experience from the tablaos and other professional shows. Many people will tell you this is more authentic flamenco, although the talent level of the performers will almost always less than the tablaos. But it is a great way to see a free and improvised flamenco show, where locals and tourists may jump in to dance or sing (hopefully the tourists don't sing!). Below are some spots scattered throughout the city of Seville. Many are located across the river in Triana.

La Carboneria

c/Levies 18 (Santa Cruz)
Famous from it's mention in almost every guide book about Sevilla, it's still worth a trip. Free music, often flamenco, can be found in the back covered terraza, popular in the summer and winter. The front bar with a more rustic, winter pub atmosphere includes a piano, stone walls and floors, fireplaces and wooden tables and chairs. A mix of people, from pijo to earthy, spanish to every nationality under the sun, with plenty of Americans if here for only a day or two. Aside from it's reputation as a tourist bar, when there's a live act and I've got a friend in town they always come away liking the place.

Lo Nuestro

c/Betis, 31 (Triana)
A fixture on calle Betis for years it's a great place for a little flamenco with a group playing just about every night. A nice break from the discotecas and other bars with bad pop music on calle Betis.

La Taberna

c/Duarte, 3 (Triana)
A great place for an improvised show just down the street from Lo Nuestro. Drinks are all you pay, after that sit back and enjoy the flamenco - normally signing and guitar.

Casa Anselma

c/Pagés del Corro, 49 (Triana)
One of the best known bars of the Triana flamenco scene where Sevillanas is common. Anselma herself will likely greet you at the door,
and while the performance is free she will keep an eye on you to make sure you order at least a drink at the bar! See a photo report at sevilla5.

Simpecao

Paseo de la O - riverwalk (Triana)
Take in a little flamenco right on the shore of the river. Improvised and spontaneous, it's a great place to for flamenco in Triana. This section of the riverwalk is in much better shape than it was 10 years ago!

La Madrugá

c/Salado (Triana)
Close to the Plaza de Cuba and plenty of places to ear. Live flamenco weekly.

Taberna Flamenca

c/Adriano (Arenal)
In the heart of the Arenal nightlife, and close to the Plaza de Toros.

La Carboneria

c/Levies 18 (Santa Cruz)
Famous from it's mention in almost every guide book about Sevilla, it's still worth a trip. Free music, often Flamenco, can be found in the back covered terraza, popular in the summer and winter.

Lola de los Reyes

Avda Blas Infante (Los Remedios)
More upscale clientele in Los Remedios.

El Rejoneo

Avda. Blas Infante (Los Remedios)
Don't be afraid to get up and dance en El Rejoneo, as many join in as the night moves on.

El Tamboril (Closed)

Plaza de Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz)
A bar where you can watch and listen to a little flamenco, or join in with locals dancing Sevillanas.

El Perro Andaluz

c/Bustos Tavera (Santa Catalina)
Weekly flamenco performances which are free. Sometimes the acts start a little later than they say on the bill. This is not a bar dedicated to flamenco but is heavily involved in the local arts scene.
