36 Hours In Madrid
10) UNADORNED FLAMENCO
There is nothing fancy about the small flamenco club called Cardamomo (Calle Echegaray, 15). The dancing here is raw, sweaty and fun; the costumes, working class; the crowd, younger and cooler than the other clubs in town. One recent night the male dancer was Kelian Jiménez, who sported shoulder-length hair and high-heeled red patent leather boots. Two drummers sit on wooden boxes that also serve as their instruments. Reservations a must.
