This little flamenco hive is hidden a 10 minutes walk from the cathedral in a very inconspicuous alleyway. It has a great atmosphere, very reasonably priced drinks and legitimate flamenco. Highly recommended *****

A good, low-pressure environment to see a great, free flamenco show. There is no entry fee, but buying at least a drink feels like the right thing to do. My partner and I loved the casual setting and beautiful and genuinely passionate performance. First show started at 9.30, would recommend getting here at 9 or 9.15 to get a seat.

Having managed to actively avoid flamenco for the first week of our stay, we were super excited about getting our annual flamenco fix at the bar we'd heard so much about . Arriving just before 9pm on Thursday, a short queue had formed, and soon after the place was packed with visitors and the atmosphere in Seville's dance shack was... More

Trough the internet we found out that there was also an "secondary level of expieriencing the Flamenco-lifestyle"... In a unknown and less-touristical part of the lovely city of Sevilla, we found - behind ancient houses and trough an opened gate- a troughly magnificent environment to expierience the "real Flamenco". Inside an ancient coal-storage, called "Carboneria" local people installed a bar... More

Arrive early to get a good seat as it does get busy later on when shows start between 9pm- 9.30pm. The shows are very good and entry is free. Drinks are very well priced with plenty of choice, 6e for a gin and tonic. The only downfall is the food is of poor standard. If they inproved on this it... More

The singing and flamenco spontaneously started at this difficult to find but very authentic and rustic sangria bar. One of the coolest experiences I had in Spain. The sangria was great too!

Family saw Flamenco twice in Sevilla, one at a show in a small theater and one at La Carboneria. They were two very different experiences, recommend doing both if you can. We wandered into La Carbonerixa around 10:20, found some seats at one of the long tables, got some drinks from the bar and waited. At around 10:30, three performers... More

Very good fun. The place is simple but the fun is what matters. Arrive soon (9PM), take a Nachos with guacamole, grab you jar of Sangria and wait. Worth the waiting. Enjoy the singer and after have the singer and flamenco. I definitely will come back!

Definitely worth visiting. If you get there early, get a spot near the front. We stayed for both shows and I would definitely recommend it. Super authentic!

Free, intimate and amazing experience. It was a great mix of locals and felt more special getting there early when only a small number of locals were there. Absolutely loved it, highly recommend.
