Malaga’s Best Flamenco Shows

You want to see a flamenco show while in Malaga, but have no idea where to catch one? Not to worry, at Solaga we’ve made a list of the best, so you don’t end up in a second-rate or overpriced tourist show.

So you’ve come to southern Spain. You have some expectations that you want to be met: eat tapas, enjoy the sun and the beaches, eat jamón and cured cheese, visit a few museums and perhaps see a flamenco show (with dinner if possible).

We’ve prepared a list of the best Tablaos Flamencos (flamenco shows) in the city. Some include dinner, some cocktails, some tapas; but all are genuine flamenco shows with live music, not  your typical-prepackaged-mediocre tourist attractions.

This venue is in a typical Andalusian patio, with geraniums hanging from the walls and paper lamps on the ceiling. It is run by a well-known dancer or bailaora from Malaga, Marina Aranda, and has great artists performing in the show. This is the closest you will find to dinner + show, as they serve a platter with jamon, cheese and other cured meats, plus a cocktail with the tickets.

Where: Calle Vendeja, 30

When: Thursdays to Sundays at 20:30

Price: 27€ (with cocktail) 30€ (cocktail and jamón and cheese tapas). Reduced prices for children.

When: Thursday to Saturday at 21:00

Price: 24€ (includes 2 drinks)

Typical flamenco tavern, go down the stairs to get to the small intimate tablao. It is a museum as well, therefore, the decorations are important staples of flamenco art and artists. The first Friday of every month, they change the show to Saturday and hold a dinner + show called Berza Flamenca. Here you will find mostly flamenco live music, it is more a recital than a dance show. Ideal for flamenco enthusiasts.

Where: Calle Ramón Franquelo, 4

When: Tuesdays at 21:00 and Fridays at 22:30 (except first of the month)

Price: Free
