Casa Anselma – La Rumba Flamenca

Anselmas doesn’t offer top quality flamenco, but this renowned bar in the Triana district is consistently rammed with clientele that have come from all corners of Spain and the world to experience its charm.

The fact that everybody drinks so much means that the night quickly descends into a riotous flamenco party

The fierce and passionate Anselma oversees the whirlwind event with more authority than any MC or club doorman. If you are lucky, she will take to the floor to sing and the rest of the time she patrols her kingdom enforcing that everybody buys as many drinks as possible. The fact that everybody drinks so much means that the night quickly descends into a riotous flamenco party with everybody singing along, clapping the “palmas” & being quitened by Anselma for their constant heckling.

The performers range from aspiring teenagers to resident singers who have been playing there for years and revel in the show. The bar is a step back in time and it its traditional Sevillian décor transports you in to the past. Things don’t really kick off in Anselmas until 1 am, but arrive well before opening time at 11 or you can expect long queues and may have to join the hopeful customers craning their necks to watch through the door from the street outside.
