Flamenco was originally done at family gatherings at home. Big families might gather in a cellar or a cave.
Families learned they could make a little money dancing for visitors and flamenco moved into bars. This is flamenco tablao. It is where the dance became a profession.
The tablao is literally the platform where the dancers perform. It is necessary because flamenco breaks the floor.
Grand flamenco shows travel the world’s great stages, but in Andalucía, the flamenco heartland, in the tablao is where you will find the flamenco.
