The Arenal Tablao is a fine-dining restaurant and flamenco performance venue founded in 1975 by Curro Vélez, a legendary dancer from Triana. It sits in the El Arenal neighborhood of Seville, named for its once-sandy riverbanks that have since transformed into a bustling tourist destination.

The tablao hosts double nightly flamenco shows under its Tablao El Arenal Flamenco Show banner, widely billed as some of Seville's best and most authentic flamenco performances.
