Dinner à la carte and well-known visiting flamenco stars accompany the resident dance troupe here. Since Morería opened its doors in 1956, celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner have left their autographed photos for the walls. Shows last for about an hour and a half and are nightly at 8:30 and 10:30.

Having lived in Madrid for some time now, I recommend coming here not only if you are vacationing or studying in Madrid but also if you have lived here and never had the opportunity to go. The dancers and musicians are so talented that they will leave you speechless. I have no idea how they move their legs and feet so fast but they manage to do it with grace. There is the option to come for just the show and a drink but I strongly recommend splurging
for the dinner. It is definitely worth it and offers some of the best dishes I have had in Spain. You should go with a group and try to order different things from the first plate and second plate options. Everything I had was cooked to perfection! Bring your spouse, your family and/or friends here for a wonderful evening.

When I decided to study abroad in Spain, I wanted to experience as much Spanish culture as possible. Naturally Flamenco was something I wanted to see. I happened to go to El Corral de la Moreria and I highly recommend it! It is the oldest and most famous tablao in Madrid and it is well known among celebrates and royalty, such as Natalie Portman, Frank Sinatra, the King and Queen of Spain, Ernest Hemingway and many more. And the flamenco was amazing!
The entire audience was enraptured from the first notes of the spanish guitar to the final stomp of the flamenco dancer´s heel. Before the show started, my friend and I ate an amazing dinner! I had roasted vegetables, leg of lamb and sorbet. It was the best food I have tasted since I left my home and my mother´s home cooking (she is an amazing cook). Although it is not a cheap experience, flamenco at El Corral de la Moreria is definitely something everyone should experience at least once in their life!
