Pictured above is the front entrance to the Los Gallos flamenco venue in Seville, Spain. The three guys sitting down are performers in the show. There are two shows each evening. They were taking a break before the late show started.
We have been to a couple of different ones in Seville. Los Gallos was our first and is still our favorite. Below I'll highlight what we felt made the difference between this and other venues in Seville.
- Service - The service is great. They come around to take drink orders before the show. You can also have a slight break in the middle of the show to take a bio break and/or order drinks again. Everyone on the staff is extremely down to earth and will talk to you including the performers (though they are obviously busy!).
- Seating - Los Gallos' seating is set up to minimize blind spots. So, no matter where you sit it is very likely you'll have a clear view of the stage. Some other venues have quite a few seats with obstructed views. There is also a balcony which is where they tend to sit families with any young-ish children. The balcony gives the kids just a little space to squirm around as they will do without disturbing the main seating area.
- Performance - The shows are two hours which is great. Other venues are similarly priced for only a one hour show. The performers are what really make the difference at Los Gallos. They seem much more passionate about their craft plus there are more performers per show than at other venues. The extra performers is probably owing to the two hour show length. This gives the show more variety and a great fiesta scene at the end.
All in all, I can whole-heartedly recommend Los Gallos if you are in Seville (Sevilla) and want to watch a flamenco show.
Until next time...
