Nice bar with a live music. The atmosphere is fun, full of laughter, great music and good drinks. Can be a bit hard to find, but if you do try and stay till the end.

Read some of the lower reviews and can see their point. Didn't have smoke problems as it wasn't too busy. The band was ok but not great singing and we sat on stools at the bar which looked the best option. The 4 of us were about to leave but lucky for us we stayed for 1 more beer and... More

Having wondered the night market this is a perfect place to sit, relax and soak in the atmosphere. Great music, lively staff and atmospheric surroundings - you must go!

As others has also mentioned, this isn't a strict "blues only" kinda place, but its nonetheless one of the greatest musical nights of my life. It's not that easy to find, but if you go to Kalare night bazaar and ask around, then you'll surely find it. In the last two nights me and my girlfriend has spent a total... More

Great blues in an unlikely setting, the three man band did one of the best versions of Fleetwood Mac I have heard. Cheap beer and a great atmosphere. No food and no frills. No fun for younger people. Very hard to find, we had to ask the local stall owners. Mainly tourists but a great evening out if you like... More

Well what a surprise. We found this by accident. You can access this by going into the Kalare Night Market - it is up high and you may need to ask a smallholder where it is. Recommend Monday nights which is open mic nights. Incredible mix of talent. There is no admittance fee and no food available. It is required... More

Arrive after 8pm and it gets super busy quickly, as that is when the bands start. Arrive after 9pm you may not get a seat. Not all blues, it is an ecletic mix of classic and soft rock, reggae and blues all thrown together. Really friendly vibe, comfy seats and reasonably priced drinks. No wifi and no toilet (you have...

A very pleasant place to spend an evening. Boy and his band are very good musicians, and everybody who gets to play knows how to play. Also pleasant space - it is an open balcony on top of Kalare market - so you can listen to the music, sip your bear and watch the activities below. The only small snag... More
