Since you will be in Sevilla after the Feria de Abril, you may find it rather quiet compared to the week before, but it would be difficult to say that Sevilla is ever "quiet".

Many bars and restaurants will be open, and this years Labour day might be more politicized than in a long time given the current situatuion in the Spanish economy and the mass unemployment as well as the massive rize of the new left party Podemos. But Spanish political demonstrations are usually just as much about party and good spirit as political protest, so in general no need to worry. Quite the opposite, could be lots of energy and good atmosphere around in bars and restaurants.

Perhaps let the day develop into a flamenco night? Few places are better to experience the power and beauty of flamenco than Sevilla. Have some jamon iberico and a few glasses of fino or manzanilla before going to intimate Casa de la Memoria for the 9pm performance. Only top artists perform here. No drinks, no food, just great flamenco (both song, guitar and male and female dancer). Pastora Galvan was voted best female flamenco dancer 2010 by Spanish critics, and she have danced almost once a week for the past five-six years: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio...Andalucia.html

Then over to the Triana district, a cradle of flamenco culture, to have some more tapas or a dinner before a going to El Mantoncillo in C/Alfareria, 104 after midnight. Here anything can happen, you might be in for a special night:
