Live a Flamenco Experience in Cardamomo

Feel flamenco vividly at Cardamomo

Today, I want to tell you about the experience we lived a few days ago at Cardamomo Tablao Flamenco of Madrid. Because I was surprised, I really did not expect what I saw.

As you know, I am Argentine, and well, I do not know much about flamenco. The first contact I had with it was the souvenirs brought by friends who came to Spain on vacation.

You would probably recognize the bailaora (flamenco dancer) with the polka dot dress. And my closest contact with the music was because of my former neighbor, who put flamenco on Sundays at 9 in the morning for the whole neighborhood (can you imagine?)

This tablao in Madrid Surprised Us

But I always had the idea of ​​going to see a live show. I think it’s something you should do if you live in Spain or visit, at least even once.

Since we will move to France soon, we cannot put it off any longer. So we decided to go and have the experience at Cardamomo, a Flamenco Tablao at the center of Madrid with more than 25 years of experience.

The Tablao Cardamomo has more than 25 years of experience and was recognized by the Madrid City Council as “Cultural Heritage of Madrid” in 2014.

Without a doubt, the tablao guarantees that you will have an authentic experience with elite artists. To me, I sincerely loved it. It exceeded my expectations by far.

Moreover, since I did not know much about ​​flamenco, I thought these sites were traps for tourists, and the truth is the opposite.

There are tourists, obviously, but the show’s quality, service, and food are out of this world.

As they say on their website: “At the tablao of Cardamomo, dancing and singing coexist with such a passion that you can sense how it sprouts from within them.

Therefore, the emotional communication that our artists have transcends the spectators like unique personal and unforgettable experiences.”

When the Flamenco show ended, as good bloggers that we are, we asked questions and got more information about flamenco and how is the experience of being at Cardamomo.

They told us that there are many types of flamenco, many “Palos” and that they are classified according to their compass, serious or festive character, geographical origin…

There are those that transmit joy or sadness, tangos, bulerías, fandango, etc. They also told us that they often improvise, depending on the experiences and state of mind of the cantaor (flamenco singer) and bailaor (flamenco dancer).

Who has Performed at Cardamomo

At the Tablao Flamenco Cardamomo, there are well-known artists from the world of flamenco. Among the best known there are Antonio Carmona, Diego el Cigala and Tomatito.

When we were there, the star dancer was Juan Andrés Maya, an amazing dancer.

2022/2023 UPDATE: Unfortunately, they have stopped serving the menu; a pity because it was delicious. If when you make your reservation, you have the option to ask for a menu, do not hesitate and include it as part of the experience.

In our experience, the dinner was delicious. We ordered the Lola option from the menu. It includes salmorejo, which they call a shot, but it’s a lot bigger than a shot (2 oz).

Afterward, we had a smoked salad that is exquisite. For the main course, you must choose between Iberian pork sirloin with sherry or salmon cava with steamed potatoes.

We chose the first option, and it was delicious. To finish, we had a chocolate mousse with nuts.

They have several menu options, including a vegetarian menu. You can also order tapas or pick a la carte.

In addition, there is a good selection of wines; we took a bottle of Vega Valerio Crianza, which was left empty!

The best way to get there is by public transport, especially if you choose to go on weekends because the traffic in Madrid is crazy !!!
