Founded in 1966 by Don Jos Luis Nuez de Prado, Los Gallos is one of Sevilles oldest tablaos and perhaps one of the best settings: a renovated historic home in the Plaza de Santa Cruz. The venue is small and elegant, and puts to use the rustic and traditional architecture of the original building as a backdrop for traditional flamenco performances. The establishment remains family owned and operated, as guests will note in the warm welcome they receive. Entrance to the two nightly shows include a drink, and performances feature twelve artists.
With a privileged location Los Gallos has and continues to attract some of the best talent on the flamenco circuit, providing a stage for recognized performers as well as new and promising talent. In over forty years the tablao has welcomed a long list of artists such as Merche Esmeralda, Cristina Hoyos, La Paquera de Jerez, Manolo Marin, Farruco, Matilde Coral Chocolate, Naranjito de Triana and many more. And over this same time Los Gallos has maintained a strict dedication to pure and traditional flamenco.
Restoration work has converted the home into a unique, intimate and comfortable venue for flamenco performances. The live flamenco shows do not make use of any sound amplification devices such as microphones or speakers. Instead, the acoustics of the building highlight the natural and pure talents of the artists.
