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.

One of my better nights out in Lanzarote. Live music was excellent for 3+ hours, the band grew throughout the night as did the atmosphere. Staff were quick to serve and offered table service. The music varied throughout the night.
