Kanela is run by the Tedesco brothers, two of Australia’s best flamenco performers. Their bar is an endearingly idiosyncratic place with a strong Spanish flavor. There’s a performing arts studio for budding flamenco dancers upstairs and a traditional bar area downstairs where customers can sip sangria or enjoy a beer. The kitchen serves authentic tapas, those small savory plates so popular in Spain, as well as proper paella. Every night there’s live music and performance, the clicking of heels and the snapping of castanets. The atmosphere is utterly infectious and it’s impossible not to enjoy yourself. Unique.
