Small venue concert venue! They bring in great talent and you are within 20-30 feet on the stage. Grab a seat early because they go fast and enjoy the evening.

I've been here numerous times over the years. The Belly Up has a continuous stream of national touring artists of high quality. I've never had a problem here.

Great venue in north county, not too big, not too small. They can carry fabulous bands with some pretty awesome light shows here, and yet it keeps a sense of beach town charm. Definitely my favorite music venue in all of San Diego...easy walk from the train too.

Heavy handed security....won't go there again. Not sure what his problem was, everyone was shooting photos of the artist. Justin Hayward was great, BellyUp not so great.

Great moderate size venue, and the food there is pretty good too. Get to the venue early, before the show to get good seats.

Belly up is just a terrific live music venue. It never fails to come through, period. Just make sure you get tickets on time because it's a small venue.
