The nightlife in Granada has a peculair charm: the presence of the Flamenco in general, and of the Zambra in particular, that is the traditional Flamenco dance of the gypsies. The importance of this artistic manifestion is so big, that it’s impossible to take a walk in the streets of Granada without finding a tablao, a Flamenco cave, a bar or a Zambra inviting you to have fun while looking a nice show of Flamenco.

If you wanto to enjoy the grace of the Flamenco in Granada you should visit, at least, 2 of the most popular neighbourhoods in town: The Sacromonte and the Albaicin. These two quarters are the best to enjoy the nightlife of Granada.

At Sacromonte, there are a lot of Zambras. These places are very special, as theye are located inside the traditional “caves” (a kind of housing typical in this neighbourhood, excavated in the mountain). At Zambras you will find activities almost every night, lovely parties in the gypsy traditional style, including dancing and singing.

At Albaicin, you will find the famous tablaos, that are bars where you can have a drink while admiring a Flamenco presentation, or the peñas. A peña is folk club, and they’re usually private, but some of them open to the public several days of the week, so it’s possible to enjoy of the trully Flamenco atmosphere in one of them.

Enjoying a flamenco show is one of the best things to do in Granada for sure. We suggest you 2 places we like:
