Live Music/Flamenco Guitar - Las Ramblas area ?

Hi

We will be staying near Las Ramblas Golf Club late May/early June 2014 and although we've stayed there a few times I haven't managed to find any local "real" music.Not really interested in tourist-type entertainment i.e.karaoke, solo singers with backing tracks, nothing from the UK as we can do that here. Ideally just want to find a local bar/establishment that has good local musicians (preferably flamenco/classical guitar) off the beaten track.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks.

Sorry - should have also mentioned that we have a rental car and don't mind travelling a few miles

Thanks.

Flamenco is not ;local' to the Costa Blanca - it comes from further south in Andalucía.

However, I have heard good reports of this show in the Torrevieja area - sorry, don' t know if it is anywhere near where you will be staying. http://www.flamencotorrevieja.com/

HI Campolady

Thanks for replying. That looks good but ideally I was looking for something a bit more intimate, maybe in a small bar or club. As a guitarist myself I am interested in seeing some good local musicians playing something "Spanish", not necessarily flamenco, but I do enjoy this style of playing.

There is a gentleman who plays Spanish guitar on the path over looking the sea near Cabo Roig market on a Thursday. I know he advertises that he will play at parties etc, but he may have a spot in a bar he could tell you about. (I've also seen him near Playa Flamenca market on a Saturday too)

It's lovely to sit in the sun, with a beautiful view and have this as background music.

Hi Rln72

Thanks for the advice. I haven't been to the Cabo Roig market (only the huge Playa Flamenca market!) so wasn't aware of this. I'l be sure to pop along and try to find him. That sounds really nice :-)

You're welcome!

I like Cabo Roig market, it's a much smaller version of PF, but with a choice of stalls, clothing, food, DIY etc. (and lovely freshly cooked churros!) we usually park at the rear of one of the large Chino stores, or one of the roads leading to the front, then walk towards the sea and walk on the promenade to the market.
