Jardines de Zoraya offers flamenco lovers, whether they are knowledgeable in the art or not, a chance to enjoy one of the best shows in the province. Located in the heart of the emblematic neighbourhood of Albaicín, just 1.5 km from the Alhambra and a few minutes from the Mirador de San Nicolás which is famous for its spectacular sunsets, this tablao is a flamenco reference point for locals and visitors alike.
The Albaicín, home of Jardines de Zoraya, is a must-see place even for those who are planning to enjoy a short break in the city from neighbouring beach areas such as the Costa Tropical or Costa del Sol. It is a true labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses that still keep alive the Arab essence of times gone by.
Meanwhile, Jardines de Zoraya is a magnificent venue where you can adjourn to enjoy Granada at its most musical and cultural thanks to its exciting performances. Witnessing renowned dancers and singers of great international prestige, those attending will be submerged in another world as they feel the passion of this artistic genre that has its origin in Moorish and Sephardic cultures.
The best flamenco show in Granada
One of the aspects that make Jardines de Zoraya the best flamenco show in Granada is its powerful staging and the great artistic quality of the dancers and singers who perform every night. Escaping the concept of stereotypical tourist shows, authentic and quality flamenco is guaranteed at Jardines de Zoraya. It is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy this art in all its magnitude. You will experience an explosion of sensations as you listen to emotional laments, observe the foot stomping and movement of the dancers and feel the vibration of the guitar strings.
Normally, the performances last an hour and are composed of shorter sessions in which different local artists participate. Esther Martín, Raquel Heredia, Luis de Luis, Juan José Villar y Sergio Aranda are some of the best-known names.
Each day two shows are organised at different times. This can be accompanied with dinner in the restaurant, featuring local cuisine, and can be chosen when buying entrance tickets. And if you do not wish to dine inside, there is also the option to purchase an entrance-only ticket. In either case, before and during the show, drinks are available whenever you fancy one.
Seats are not numbered but are assigned in the order in which the tickets were purchased. For this reason, it is recommended that they are reserved as early as possible so that you can enjoy a better view of the stage.
An intimate and atmospheric place with an Andalusian spirit
One of the main attractions of Jardines de Zoraya is that it is located inside a magnificent Carmen in the Granadian style. This traditional building, which is quite common in the Albaicín and Realejo neighbourhoods, is what helps to create the intimacy and special atmosphere that is needed to be fully immersed in each performance. There really is no better place to enjoy a flamenco show in Granada!
In addition, our restaurant has an incredible terrace where you can enjoy romantic evenings with your partner, especially during the spring and summer months. It is a charming place to have a relaxing meal whilst listening to the sound of water emanating from the Nasrid fountain and delighting in the refreshing aroma of orange, lemon and aromatic plants in the garden. And all this under the imposing shadow of the old great mosque, where today the church of San Salvador is located. Without a doubt, it is a very romantic place to enjoy a very special evening in the best company.
To enjoy the experience in all its glory, we recommend that you choose the show with dinner. It is a menu or à la carte meal that can be served in the indoor dining room or on the terrace, depending on your preferences.. To prevent the waiters from creating a distraction during the performance, the meal is served before the show begins.
The menu at Jardines de Zoraya stands out for its originality, carefully prepared dishes and the use of perfectly selected ingredients. There is a variety of traditional cuisine to choose from, including both local dishes and others with a modern touch.
Our waiters always provide a helpful and friendly service which will make you feel comfortable and enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience.
