Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We were looking for an intimate Flamenco experience in Madrid and we found it with Cardamomo! The room was small enough that everyone in the venue could still see and it didn’t feel overwhelming or crowded. They provided drinks when we arrived and we enjoyed ours so much we each purchased a second glass. The performers were all fantastic and it was an awesome experience!

    This show was 👏 amazing. The ambiance, the emotion, the skill. If I could rate it at 10, I would . The dancers were so full of emotion, the singer had such a soulful way about him. Was also fascinating learning about history of flamenco.

    In a small street in Madrid, you find Sunset 80, a classic proposal, but different from all the fashion clubs. His sign announces "welcome to the 80´s" and another sign on the door clarifies that you will not listen to reggaeton or commercial music. It is very well attended, prices are reasonable. A fully recommended option

    We visited in januari around 20.00u. the staff was very friendly, the drinks are nicely priced and they give complementary snacks with the drinks. I really recommend this place if your looking for a place to have a good cocktail close by main Street.

    A great spot for late night music. Plenty of space and set out so everyone can see the band. Good drinks and atmosphere.

    Having never been to flaminco before, I admit having a lot of misconceptions. I thought the show would consist of many men and women dancing at the same time.
    Actually, there was a band of 5 musicians/singers and only one man and one woman who danced. There were only 3 or 4 dancing numbers, and other times it was just the band. The show was enjoyable, just different than expected.
    As a side note, we booked this with the tapas - which were good, but honeslty I think we were the only people there who ate anything. So my advice would be just to book the show and eat elsewhere.

    Excellent comedy in a small room with good actors. Wait on the main lobby and the person in charge will ring a bell to call on your selected comedy or drama assigned on different rooms from 1 to 4. Prices are reasonable and have offers for three to four acts.

    La Venencia isn't a trendy hip tapas bar. If you want cocktails or cañas or vermouth, you will have to go elsewhere. They serve sherry here, that's it. So, if you don't like sherry, don't go. If you have never had good sherry before, though, give it a try. They have different kinds, from very dry to sweet. I am a huge fan of the manzanilla. It costs 2 euros per glass and is delicious.

    The charm of the place is in its history and its unchanging character. Yes, it is old. Yes, it is small and a little bit dark. The furniture is old. It looks like it hasn't been painted since 1934. For me, that gives it a wonderful atmosphere. It's a trip back in time to old working class Madrid. It's not dirty or run down. It's just not glitzy and modern. It's traditional. I love that they don't try to change who they are, and they remain true to their roots.This is honestly one of my favorite places in Madrid.

    The bartenders are old school, professional, serious. They do what they're paid to do and don't depend on tips. They are attentive, but not fawning. I've been here many times and never found them to be rude. But they aren't going to stand around and chat with you all day. The bar attracts a lot of local patrons as well as tourists. Given how busy it gets at times, I'm amazed at how the bartenders manage to take care of so many people and not loose their patience.

    It's the policy of the bar to not allow photos of the interior. It annoys some people, but there's something to be said for living in the moment and enjoying the time spent here without documenting it all on instagram. Put your phone away, it won't kill you.

    I prefer going mid day during the week when it's not quite so crowded. You can sit and read or talk to friends over a glass or two of sherry and spend a very nice hour here. They serve some very basic food to go along with the sherry (olives, cheese, ham). Don't go expecting to make a night of it here and have a full meal. Go to for an hour or so and enjoy it for what it is. If you are looking for more variety in food and drink, try the Cervecería Alemana on the Plaza Santa Ana right around the corner. It's more of a typical Madrid bar/ tapas place and also has a historical feel to it.

    The owner of a nearby restaurant recommended I visit Madrid & Darracott and very fortunately I was able to book a tasting for the last night of their annual Sherry Week. What a delightful experience. I learned a lot about wine in the company of locals, expats, and tourists alike. 100% would do again.

    I was staying near Atocha Train Station , went walking looking for a bar with atmosphere and how lucky to find this.
    Wonderful barman Jose , credit to the establishment. Lovely choice of drinks and snacks given with them .
    There was an Art group get-together when we visited so the place was so busy with a great ambience.
    Was hoping to return next week but thats not to happen now. I look forward to returning once this virus has left .
    Great First experience to Madrid.
