Madrid

La Solea
There's little separation between audience and musicians at this fantastic late night flamenco bar; the guitarist accompanies amateur enthusiasts along with the professionals.
Cafe de Chinitas
One of the best clubs in Madrid, Cafe de Chinitas is popular with locals and tourists. Come to dine before the show or join the locals for a drink after the performance.
Cafe la Palma
A great alternative to Madrid's Cavalli-clad, see-and-be-seen clubs, Cafe La Palma is all about fun. Come for great music with plenty of variety.
Cafe Jazz Populart
Jazz aficionardos should look no further than Cafe Jazz Populart. A perennial favourite, this small, intimate bar provides an exceptional mix of atmosphere and live music.
Casa Patas
Small, intimate and intense, this is flamenco up close and personal. One of the most popular flamenco clubs in town, dine at the club and then head over to its sister bar afterwards.

Las Carboneras is run by three dancers who aim to showcase young, up-and-coming performers, fusing avant-garde style with the best of today's flamenco.
Cafe Central
A must for jazz lovers, Cafe Central is in an area serried with bars, restaurants and other jazz clubs (Cafe Jazz Populart). Stop by for a mix of international and homegrown talent.
