Top ways to experience Tablao Flamenco La Cueva de Lola and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
How to get there

    Very enjoyable show
    Very enjoyable flamenco show. Our ticket included a drink but you can order food for during the show. The setting, a cellar cave, is perfect with great ambience and the hour long flamenco show was very enjoyable. Absolutely worth the 25 Euro ticket price.

    Up close and personal
    A lovely little find. The place is set in the cellar so it feels like a cave and is very intimate. The performers were very good and it lasted around an hour with a break. Our ticket included a drink. A really interesting, up close and personal view of Flamenco Dancing.

    Excellent dancing and music
    Our local Madrid friend suggested that we attend the flamenco performance here. She booked the reservation and asked for a table close to the stage. We were seated about half way back as tables closer to the stage are for couples only who sit along the wall, so that was a bit disappointing. Our line of sight to the stage was excellent despite not being as close as I had expected to be. The show lasted 75 minutes including a break. We paid 25 Euros each and had quite a few choices for the included beverage. The dancing and the music were excellent and the price was reasonable.

    give it a go!
    This was fun and the performers were amazing. We paid for tapas along with the show. Don't overthink it pick this show because it is less expensive and still fun! :) It's really only an hour so it's not a huge time commitment and gives you a chance to check out flamenco - which i think may be a bit touristy - while not committing too much time. I think I would suggest skipping tapas and just get drinks instead because it's distracting to get your meal during the show and you feel like you dont want to chew too loudly ha.

We made the reservation directly on the venue's portal since October 2023. We are a group of 19 people, so we did it in advance to ensure space and seating location. They informed us that it was done on a first-come, first-served basis. Once we paid, they sent an email with details stating, 'you don't have to do anything else.' On the day of the reservation around noon, I sent a message to express our excitement about visiting. Before the majority of the group arrived, two people had already shown up and were told that there was no reservation for 19 people. When we arrived at the venue, the young man who welcomed us claimed there was no reservation in the system. I searched on my phone (a bit worried, thinking I had made a mistake) and showed him the confirmation they had sent me. The guy checked and found the reservation. Unfortunately, they seated us in an area with limited visibility, and only 5 out of 19 people could see the show well. This negatively impacted the experience. It's worth to mention that the service during the show and the performance was good, but the administrative part was not efficient, and we did not have the best experience. I have visited other flamenco shows in Madrid. I would not return to this one.

I’m Spanish and I’m surprised. My family and I came here dragged by my boyfriend, who is American and wanted to live the experience. We are happy he did, otherwise we would have never tried!

Our table was toward the front of the stage, which we *think* we snagged by arriving a little early, grabbing a quick drink at the upstairs bar, and being ready to head down to the "cave" right when the show was being seated. Our confirmation email said seating is assigned by order of your reservation, but when we arrived, it appeared it was a first-come, first-seated arrangement, so our advice is to be there a little early if possible. We opted for the drinks and show-only ticket (€25 each), although there are other available options to have ham and cheese tapas and/or flatbreads included in your experience for an extra fee. The tables are rather small though, and the setting was very cozy (you'll be seated very close to other patrons) so we chose to forgo the extra food and enjoy our drinks and the show instead. The energy from the three incredibly talented dancers, the singer, and the guitarist is palpable and electric, no matter where you're seated. It was an exceptionally hot day in Madrid, so the temperature in the cave was pretty warm even at 9pm, but bring a fan and you'll be fine. You forget all about the heat once the show starts, and there are also a few breaks in between songs so you can run to the restroom, as well as chat with the people you're with (and any new friends you might make). It's clear that the dancers are all well-trained in traditional flamenco and each brings their own unique style to their performance. It's quite a wonder to witness, with the singer and guitarist both equally talented. One of our highlights in Madrid was experiencing flamenco at La Cueva de Lola and we'd absolutely go again next time we're here!

Nicely put and decorated. It has an entrance bar for drinks for waiting before the show. The downstairs restaurant for the show is comfortable with great assortment of tapas available. The Show is impressive and strong. We loved it. Fairly priced.
