Casa Patas is a tavern-restaurant and flamenco performance space located in the center of Madrid. It is considered an exemplar of excellence in the World of Flamenco.

This unique establishment successfully combines quality gastronomy based on superior raw materials prepared according to traditional Spanish recipes with a varied program of live Flamenco shows of the highest quality.

There are two spaces: the tavern-restaurant and the "tablao" (Spanish for performance space exclusively for flamenco). The first, opening onto Cañizares Street, welcomes customers into a spacious bar area that leads into the table dining zone. By tradition, tapas, Spain's 'brief art' are consumed at the bar but can also serve as an entrée to a delicious lunch or dinner. The second space, behind a door, is the "tablao" or flamenco performance space, where the daily flamenco shows take place.  There are food and drink options here as well.

The Casa-Patas client can choose whatever combination strikes their fancy or meets their needs at any given moment. It's possible to visit just the bar or the restaurant or the "tablao" or combine two or all three in any order. Anything is possible.

Individual customers and small parties are always welcome but Casa Patas can handle larger groups as well. There is a wide range of services available to large groups, both business and social; including a variety of menus, private performances and/or workshops and the use of exclusive spaces both in Casa Patas and at The Casa Patas Foundation's "El Café Cantante", located upstairs in the same building.

The prestige that Casa Patas has earned is based on the quality of the products and services it has been offering for over three decades. Today its reputation, both national and international is undisputed.

The quality of our gastronomy is founded on the careful selection of prepared products as well as raw materials cooked according to the best traditional Spanish recipes. Spanish cuisine, a touchstone of Casa Patas, is part of the Mediterranean Diet, which has been declared part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Flamenco has one of its main temples in Casa Patas. As connoisseurs of this art, listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, Casa Patas takes Flamenco very seriously. This leads us to be very demanding in our selection of the artists who perform here as well as in the conditions of the space where these performances take place. In order to ensure these conditions, it is of utmost importance that the "tablao" have its own room with theatre-quality conditions that bring out the best in performers and encourage respectful attention in the audience. These are factors that Flamenco performers greatly appreciate. The variety of our programming is another important element. Each week, different artists with original shows contribute to the freshness of the performances and keeps musicians, singers and dancers motivated and working at the peak of their capacities.

All these factors converge in the fact that Casa Patas has been, since its founding, a place where Flamenco artists living in Madrid can meet and interact with performers coming from other parts of Spain and beyond. The frequent presence of performers as well as experts along with the general public is a remarkable stimulant for the artists on stage who create truly magical nights of "duende"* and "pellizco**" .

In 2009 Casa Patas was honored by the Community of Madrid with the "Enrique Maya" award for its contribution to the development and dissemination of Flamenco Art as well as for its ongoing work in the integration of the Roma (Gypsy) People.

Notes

*Lorca writes: "The duende, then, is a power, not a work. It is a struggle, not a thought. I have heard an old maestro of the guitar say, 'The duende is not in the throat; the duende climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet.' Meaning this: it is not a question of ability, but of true, living style, of blood, of the most ancient culture, of spontaneous creation.".  WIKIPEDIA
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duende_(art)

** Pellizco: Quiebro o jipío propio del cante flamenco. También se aplica como cantidad indeterminada de dinero y como sinónimo de congoja.

jipio: a cry (such as ay) used by the singer to find his pitch or simply put into the middle of a song.
