Experience a Spanish ‘tablao’ in Halifax!
In Spain, people will often visit a ‘tablao’ to experience authentic flamenco. The word “tablao” comes from “tablados” (wooden floor stages). These Spanish pubs and eateries became hugely popular in the latter half of the 20th century, and have since continued to grow.
Since the 1950’s, the tablaos have been magnets for flamenco lovers and tourists. A typical tablao runs two-three flamenco shows every evening featuring between 3-8 artists and shows, serving up drinks, tapas, or fancy dinner menus into the wee hours of the night – much like any popular pub in Halifax that features live music – except the tablao strictly features only flamenco dance and music.
