As you can see, we’re visiting all the bests tablaos of Madrid. Yesterday we were invited to el Corral de la Moreria, this is probably the most famous tablao of Madrid, considered the cathedral of Flamenco, it has the special award of the best tablao flamenco of the world, it appears in the Michelin Guide 2010 and also in the book “1000 places to see before you die”.
Its venue is located very close to the Almudena Cathedral and the Royal Palace one of the most beautiful areas of Madrid. Inside you’ll find the restaurant and showroom together. I liked the place, it has good sound, notice that in this tabao there are no microphones. There is a charming atmosphere, all the tables are very close, and you are allowed to take pictures, which I really don’t think is the best idea. So it’s recommended that if you’re going to have dinner you should arrive at 20:30, the show will start when you are on desserts like at 22:00. There is another show at 24:00, and you can have dinner before this one as well.
The show was great!, el Corral has often the best artists of the moment, the show is very carefully design, there were three singers, three guitarists, two main dancers and two other woman dancers. The show was amazing, even though it could be the most touristic compare with the rest. It’s true that the staging is unique.
It wouldn't be strange that you meet with some famous actor or celebrity, we did, with the famous Egyptian actor Omar Sharif.
Special mention for the wonderful dinner they offered us, that we strongly recommend if your budget allows it.
