*Sadly, when we visted August 2010, this bar was closed. I'm not sure if that's permenant or not*

This is a authentic flamenco bar which used to be run by Ricardo who is a very talented flamenco guitarist from a gypsy family, although I don't think he is the owner of this place now. This was probably be your only chance to see real flamenco performed in a relaxed setting rather than an overpriced tourist show along the coast or in Granada and I hope Ricardo has found a nw venue for this summer.

You can have a meal and then listen to some live music and if lucky, see some very high quality flamenco dance.

Often the show doesn't start until midnight (or sometimes later), but if you want the real thing, go to this place.

This is a large bar and running costs are high, I know the owners work extremely hard to keep this place open; so go and have a meal there and be assured it is towards the very good cause of keeping flamenco music live in Almunecar. I for one, do not want to see this bar dissappear off the flamenco radar.

*Aug 08 - Met the new owner who seems to have the bar ticking along nicely, although somewhat lacking in the spirit I was rather fond of. Would like to know where Ricardo and co are now though!
