Widely regarded as the first flamenco theater in the world, the Flamenco Theater in Madrid is located in the Malasaña neighborhood. The social and cultural hub boasts a vibrant history and is popular with younger crowds. The theater is housed within the equally historic multi-purpose venue, Alfil Theater, and is a short distance from Gran Via, Madrid's answer to Broadway.

Sitting at the heart of Madrid and flamenco, the Flamenco Theater Madrid has seen it all. Much like the Andalusian art of flamenco, the venue welcomes all, regardless of where you hail from or what your story is.
