  • Beautiful Middle Eastern/Moorish Spanish decorations. We saw Sara Baras' "Shadows" flamenco show, so the decor matched the show nicely. Food was also good (they had Spanish tapas dishes available). Show was great. At the end we were admonished by a staff member for not vacating the theater quick enough, which was the only dampener on an otherwise nice night out.
  • The building is excellent. There's not a bad seat. The Flamenco Festival with Sara Baras was excellent. The bathrooms are gender neutral which I really liked. Very clean facility. Excellent sound.
