This sanctuary of Madrid flamenco first opened as a “tablao” in the spring of 1911; at that time the greats of the flamenco scene met at Villa Rosa.Famous local and foreign characters came to Villa Rosa and enjoyed beautiful and endless nights. Champagne, fino sherry,palmas, heels, flamenco dresses, bullfighting debates, guitar riffs and husky singers’s voices produced wonderful nights and dawns for our frequent local visitors such as people like Lola Flores, Imperio Argentina, Miguel de Molina, Juanito Valderrama y Dominguín, or foreigners treated as if they were locals, like Ava Gardner or Hemingway. All of them loved what Villa Rosa was and meant.Even the Monarchy was aware of Villa Rosa’s

Come for the flamenco. The food is fine, the wine is good, but those aren't the reasons to come. Come for the flamenco. It's expert, technical, passionate, deeply emotional and incredible to experience. Whether your flamenco tastes tend toward guitar, or singing or dance or...the totality of the full flamenco experience you will not be disappointed. Ole!More

Our family including 6, 9, and 9 yo went to see flamenco dancing. I found the performance to be good however can't compare as this was our first time. Our tickets included 1 drink. We orders some French fries for the kids and appetizers which...were good. The performance was 1 hour which was good for the kids. Variety of singing and dancing. Overall would recommend to see if this is your 1st time.More

I love going to see a local performance in whatever country I visit, especially if it feels authentic and not too touristy. Villa Rosa was just the thing! The performance was beautiful and the food was great. I would highly recommend. But, remember.. no photos...of the performance. I didn't catch that when they said it in Spanish and was busted (politely).More

At 39 Euro (with one drink) and a great sales pitch I was expecting an impressive show. Yes the venue is lovely but the seating is dubious depending on when you booked. The performance started promisingly enough with some great guitar and reasonable singing. After...15 min of this we finally had the female dancer start and perform for maybe 8 min. The another 25 min of guitar and singing that was OK. I looked at my watch and we were 48 minutes into the 1 hour performance with one 8 minute dance! Finally the male dancer came on with a bit of an OTT performance that went for about 12 minutes, then that was it! Unbelievable really. Save your money and wait til you go til Seville. We saw 2 performances there for less than half the price that were twice as good. The good reviews here must be from people who saw their first Flamenco. I could mention some other unpleasant aspects of the place in general, but can't be bothered, avoid.More

I live in Madrid and a friend was visiting me. We went to Villa Rosa for my friends first flamenco experience. We visited it the day before and spoke with someone about the show. He told us to just call to make an appointment when...we decided, which we did. We arrived for the show and were given a table that was in the back with an horrific view. I asked for a different table and was told if I had paid when I made the reservation I could have had a better table. When I called no one asked for payment. Finally we got a different table in the back. where we could stand up to see, as long as we weren't in the waiters way. It didn't matter. Of the one hour show the guitarist and two cantaores fiddled around for 25 minutes. The only good part was the guitarist. Finally, the female dancer danced for 15 minutes, mediocre. Then another 10 minutes of guitar. Then the male dancer danced for 12 minutes. He was okay, not great. The venue was quite lovely though. This was a total waste of time and money. So little dancing I'm sorry it was the first and only flamenco my friend will see. Cardamoma or Corral de Moreira are much more worth the money and time.More
