Went here twice to listen to Rory and co. Very good music. Even the original songs are very good. We were lucky enough to get seats the first night but standing room only the second night. Great singalong nights with a few drinks.

No trip to Lanzarote is complete without a trip to the Island. Rory’s energy to get up and sing most nights of the week is unbelievable and he’s consistently excellent and engages with the crowd which makes for a great experience every time.
