My friend and I went to the Tablao Cordobes, it was a really special night! We did not have to wait or queue! However, I would advise to arrive early, so you can try and get the best seats. Once inside, I was overwhelmed with the amazing decorations, Arabian style. It felt like I was in Granada. Then the director, Antonio, gave us a warm welcome and we were seated at a lovely table for dinner. As soon as we sat down the waiter arrived, he recommended a list of available drinks. After our bottle of wine arrived, we went over to the buffet area, which was absolutely amazing!! It was great to see the different variety of food available. We saw many traditional Spanish dishes, such as “Paella”, “Jamon”, “Canelones” … I would recommend the “Black Rice” and the “Bacalao a la Vizcaina”. We could eat and drink as much as we wanted eventhough I would recommend that you leave a bit of space for the deserts!! We had over an hour enjoy the buffet. The waiters were really attentive and very friendly.
We were then given the Tablao Cordobes newspapers, where we could find all the information of the different artists that would play during the night. We then went onto the second room, where they explained that it was forbidden to take photos or shoot any videos during the show, however towards the end they did allow us to quickly take some shots.
The lights were then switched off! (Just so you know, the room was like a warm living area of an Adalusian house. The “Tablao” in the middle, cozy and intimate, surrounded by chairs, where all of us were seated and waiting). Suddenly, darkness, we started hearing a voice, a beautiful voice full of passion, and then the lights came on, and the Magic conquered the room.
We could enjoy Amazing Voices, Talented Guitarists and extraordinary Dancers, but the biggest surprise was to have the privilege to see “El Carpeta”, the youngest of the dynasty that was found by the legendary Farruco. The nine year old boy left us all speechless. It was an experience I will never forget.
Before the end of the show we were able to take lots of pictures of the Artists while they were dancing. Sadly the show ended, but as a last surprise, the Artists came to introduce themselves and talk with all of us, so I had the chance to meet “El Farru” and the other Artists.
I would recommend this Unbelievable experience to those wishing to explore a bit of the Andalusian Culture and for curious people who wish to experience the Flamenco. And I would like to thank Viator for this amazing experience and I would also like to thank The Tablao Cordobes for the entertainment that they provided us with!!!
