This venue opened in 1995 in downtown Bilbao, after an old theatre was refurbished and turned into a multi-purpose venue. Today, Kafe Antzokia is a lively place mostly known as a live music venue by music lovers worldwide beause of its varied schedule that features Basque and international artists. It has restaurant service at lunchtime, hosts many cultural activities, theatre for children, book presentations, conferences, a Basque language academy (Gabriel Aresti) and a community radio station (Bilbo Hiria irratia). Every weekend it becomes a very popular night club with DJs playing until late.

Great venue!

Really quirky, interesting setting in an old theatre with a lovely atmosphere. We had the menu of the day which was good quality and value for money. The place was jammed even though it was a week day - I would definitely recommend booking in advance to avoid hanging around. I would highly recommend this place.

We went there on a saturday night around 22:00 hours. We were the only one in the place but it looked stunning. We were very sorry that there weren't any band playing that night because it looked like a very good place to be staying all night.

I went to Kafe Antzokia while on a visit to Bilbao with friends. They weren't interested in going with me so I went solo to hear a live band (can't recall the name). The music was good, and the crowd was pleasant and diverse. At the end of their set, a live DJ started to play. I stayed for a... More
