If you search for live music in Ibiza, chances are you will find what it is best-known for: super-clubs hosting internationally recognized DJ’s, and the price-tag that big names tend to bring with them. But Ibiza actually has a range of intimate venues that offer up a different variety of musical acts that suit those looking to get away from the big crowds and dry-ice machines and enjoy good food, plenty of good drink and a great atmosphere to wind down (or get the night started) on a warm evening.
This venue is praised for its chilled and authentic atmosphere, the perfect combination to host regular live music events for all tastes, including flamenco performances by Gypsy Moreno (ex Gypsy King) and Cristian Moreno. As well as good music, Putumayo serves up a delicious and unusual menu titled “The taste of Suriname” which brings South American flavours to Ibiza.
This lesser-known bar/club is a firm favourite amongst the Sta Eularia locals and kicks off most weekends with all-nighter parties showcasing the best emerging dj’s. Not limiting itself to this genre, however, Guarana is also known to host live music events in the evenings which cater to those looking for a more relaxed music experience. Unlike other clubs entry is free, there is no minimum spend and the drinks prices are reasonable.
Aside from being a wonderful place for relaxed, sunny dining, this charming spot in San José offers a fantastic variety of live music acts throughout the year in its cosy terrace. Here they offer the best of Ibiza talent, with shows most nights ranging from 70’s Rock, to Blues to Gypsy Flamenco. The performances are generally on between 10pm and midnight making it a perfect spot for a post-dinner drink, or as a place to get warmed up for the night ahead.
Can Nuts is a tiny bar that makes up for size in quality and atmosphere. Its live music events are intimate and often get everybody out of their seats and dancing on the pavements. If this is your scene then not only will you get to hear some foot-tappingly good music, but also sample some fantastic fresh food, including tapas and vegetarian options.
