Concierge.com's insider take:

Taking in a flamenco show in Madrid can be a fantastic experience, but beware cheesy imitations—tourist traps abound. Moreíra is the real deal, the place where all the big-name dancers perform when they're in the city and where the stars come to take in a show. The walls are covered in pictures of patrons past and present, spanning 50 years—from JFK, Che Guevara, and Frank Sinatra to Bono, Hugh Grant, and Sarah Jessica Parker. The venue is a typical tablao, with a small stage at one end of the huge room and the rest of the space crammed with wooden tables and chairs. Dinner is served before the show, with a minimum expenditure of €45 ($71) per person, not including the €30 ($47) entrance fee. The dancing (and singing) begin at 10 pm, with the house troupe followed by an invited guest performer. It's all very serious, and at times it seems certain the foot stomping will break the wooden stage. Seating is assigned depending on when the reservation is made, so book early.

Open daily 8 pm to 2 am.
