CAFÉ DE CHINITAS, THE ORIGIN OF FLAMENCO ART
One summer evening in 1969, some members of the Verdasco family along with some of his cousins Heras family were enjoying the music from a street artist, on a terrace they had in the Plaza de Oriente.
They had to make a business decision to transform one of their business in a different business, then someone, inspired by musician playing near them, said:
“Why do not we set up a Flamenco Show Restaurant?”
“We don’t know about this business, but surely we can ask for help from people we know,” said another …
They raised many questions about it, but with the assurance that we would find who did the easy way, we undertook this adventure. With limited knowledge of flamenco, but with the teachings that had inculcated previous generations, particularly Candida Santos, our great-grandmother and founder of a dynasty. She taught us that it is important to undertake the path to your dreams and never give up, as she did in 1870, when he came from his native Asturias and opened La Bola, the first family restaurant that remains open since …
We broke the rules and open our Flamenco show in a palace of the eighteenth century, we were inspired by the oldest Café Cantante in Spain, Café de Chinitas in Málaga and García Lorca. The shawls and bullfighting motifs decorate our home. Sculptors as Manuel Sanguino, who also sculpted the doors of the Cathedral of the Almudena, gave birth to many corners of our house.
We want you to be our traveling companion and become part of our history.
