One of the most common question by visitors to Granada is about authentic Flamenco.

What do people actually mean by "authentic"?

There is quite a lot of non authentic flamenco that is excellent.  For example have you ever heard the "Gypsy Kings"  They are actually French not Spanish so I suppose they would fail on being authentic but I am sure that if most people went to a cave in the Sacromonte and by chance happened to get the Gypsy Kings I am sure they would be happy.

So in answering this question I will just try to answer the question that you probably should have asked.

Which is probably:

Can you recommend any flamenco in Granada that is very entertaining, involves virtuoso musicianship, spirited passionate dancing with a good atmosphere which does not make me feel too much like a tourist?

OK:

Chien Andalou.
The best easiest place to get this is the Chien Andalou. This is a flamenco bar or Tablao. It has a very convenient location at the start of the River Darro just after Plaza Nueva.   It does not have online booking so it would be a good idea to stroll past there and have a look then either book for the next night or go straight in. It is possible to eat there.

The website only in Spanish is here

It has good reviews on trip advisor: EG:
Excellent flamenco show in an intimate cave-like setting!!! Sign up early for tickets because seating is limited but worth it!! They seat you with other people which at first was off putting but then became a wonderful way to meet other couples that were traveling from all over the world!!! We shared bottles of wine and then went to La Frontera after to have more drinks and conversations after this fantastic show!!!!

I have not finished writing the answer to this question.  I will continue shortly.
