Flamenco comes in many guises in Seville. I prefer it simple and laid bare, and places to experience it this way include Casa de la Guitarra and the Flamenco museum. Several spots offer a big all-singing, all-dancing stage show, which usually includes dinner and is more like a musical—not particularly authentic. El Arenal is an interesting halfway point, and it's ideal if you do want to make more of an evening of it and dine while you enjoy the dancing. It's a small, intimate venue, with only 15 or so tables arranged close to the stage. The food is fine, nothing special, but not bad at all. You can choose to go à la carte and dine on steak or fish, go for a selection of tapas, or just pay for the show plus a drink. The flamenco is good—full of emotion and fire, just as it should be. You'll see more dancers and singers here on stage than at the bare-bones places and it feels a little more like a show, but it's still intimate and genuinely moving.
