Flamenco Experience at Tablao de Carmen, Barcelona with Dinner or Drink
Our party of 6 spent the evening at Tablao de Carmen for a 3 course dinner and a Flamenco show. Before the show we browsed the many shops in this beautiful Poble Espanol Architectural museum and purchased some local souvenirs. The show was outstanding, as was the food. The setting was small enough to experience the show up close. Very enjoyable evening!

Flamenco Experience at Tablao de Carmen, Barcelona with Dinner or Drink
The show was fabulous! The only disappointment was that the dancers did not use castanets. The Sangria, the croquettes, the fish dinner, and desserts were delicious. The only negative was the roast beef dinner. The staff was tremendous and amicable. Worth the experience!

Flamenco Experience at Tablao de Carmen, Barcelona with Dinner or Drink
We booked a 6:00 pm show at Tablao de Carmen on September 11th. Unfortunately, it was also National Catalonia Day and most of the roads were closed and the taxi wasn't able to get us to the location. When I called to let them know my dilemma, they were understanding and let us come to a later show. Once we got there the tapas was more than sufficient and I am so glad we didn't get the dinner, the show was very good and we had an enjoyable evening.

Flamenco Experience at Tablao de Carmen, Barcelona with Dinner or Drink
The flamenco show was superb, we sat right next to the stage, got our drinks quickly, and the dancers were incredible. We really enjoyed the location of the venue as well, go early so you can discover the restaurants and boutiques in Poble Espanyol! Worth the price.

The History of Flamenco in Barcelona

Traditional flamenco was born in Andalucia in Southern Spain during the 18th century and didn’t make its way north to Barcelona until the second half of the 19th century. As more and more Andalucian-born Spaniards moved to Barcelona for work, they brought with them their flamenco traditions.
