The Low Down


Know Before You Go: Flamenco shows take place at 8pm, Wednesday through Sunday. A fixed price of $29.95 includes dinner. Don't plan on dining during club nights--the kitchen is often closed.

Parking: Valet parking is available in front of the club on Sunset, but you can also opt to try and scope out a spot further down the street.
