Our space

The Alfil Theatre opened its doors as a new versatile and multi-use venue in the centre of Madrid. A space that can be adapted to all types of performances and events: theatre, concerts, presentations, conferences, courses…

The Alfil Theatre has an area of 300 m2, divided into two floors. An 80m2 amphitheatre with 46 fixed seats. Its seating area has three rows of fixed seats at the back of the hall and a capacity for 62 people. In front, there is a light-filled 100m2 space with chairs and tables, with a capacity for 100 people seated or 150 people standing.

Who we are

The Alfil is a special place. A theatre with its own personality. It is located in the heart of the Malasaña neighbourhood, very close to Plaza de Callao. Its history and programming have made it unique on the Madrid scene. And the quality of its shows has made it a benchmark venue.

Since 1996, the year in which the company Yllana started to manage it, it has always remained at the vanguard of the capital’s cultural offering. Over time, it has become a place that captivates thousands of viewers every year.

It is undoubtedly an important engine for a booming neighbourhood full of vitality and modernity.


A venue with so much charm. We have created a more comfortable hall, with even more charm, which makes coming here a truly unique experience. Our audiences enjoy the best shows, as well as their favourite beverages.

Our buffet ensures we can organise all types of events without need to outsource this service.
