Time Out says
D.W. Griffith built El Cid in 1905 and, ten years later, screened his controversial hit film Birth of a Nation here. Made over into a recreation of a 16th-century Spanish tavern in 1961, El Cid features flamenco dance dinner theater Friday through Sunday. During the week (and after the flamenco shows on the weekends) enjoy local musical acts, performance art, comedy, and even short film screenings. Delicious tapas available to order at the bar, or sit down for a full Spanish-fusion meal. Due to its small capacity of only 125, you’ll never feel crowded, except in the airplane bathroom–size toilets.
