  • Just thought that I do not recall ever seeing Flamenco in LG or locally.

    Is there any bars or restaurants that provide this entertainment

  • The only place I know is the Greek Corner in Las Americas when they have it on Wednesday nights.  However it is not the sort of place I would particularly recommend.

  • Flamenco's a bit too Spanish for the Canarians, that's probably why it's on at a Greek restaurant

  • They have a show at Hotel Arena, the posh place. It's in the theatre on the lower ground floor, about once a week is a Flamenco act. Just wander in the Hotel entrance, walk down the marble staircase, and there is a notice board for the that weeks event.

    Jamon y Jamon is NOT in Alcala it is in Playa San Juan and the telephone number for bookings is 663271735 it is closed on Mondays and Flemenco is on Sunday as @janey says

    I've been looking for where this place is located and I can only find a Jamon, Jamon in Playa San Juan.

    Are you sure that the one you mention is in Alcala ? If so, can you give us a more detailed location (street) ?

    I would like to see some real flamenco - not the fake balletic stuff you see in the hotels, if that's possible on Tenerife ?

  • Thanks for that and just looked at trip advisor.

    How far is it from LG by taxi and do you need to book

  • Yes booking is a MUST, infact I think they are booked weeks in advance for the Sundays, it's only in Playa San Juan, only 10-15 mins from Los Gigs, think a taxi will be about 10 euros, you could get the bus there & taxi back

  • We went whilst we were out in December/January.  We thought it was lovely.   The food was great with a great choice of wines.  The staff were helpful but not gushing.  We sat at a table away from view of the flamenco but got to see some of it.  It was good to hear authentic Spanish music.   Will definitely go next time we are in Tenerife.   Will probably book from the UK and get a seat in view of the dancing.   I would say go if you get the chance.
