It’s changed. For us at least. No doubting the talent and enthusiasm of the musicians and that of the bar staff but the music was not to our taste having previously enjoyed the more eclectic mix of Rory and co. If rock music is to your liking then you will still enjoy a cracking evening.

We were in Lanzarote for 9 days, only home a week now and we were in The Island on 3 nights. Although we are regular visitors to PDC, we had never been in this spot before. The owner Rory Gallagher is the main live performer and all I can say is he is some performer. I don't know where he gets his energy from , I think he sang and played instruments for 3.5 hours without a break. We really enjoyed his performances but the bad news is that tonight is his last night.
It's apparently closing for one week and then under new management will open up again under a new name of "Electric Island"

Went on a sunday which was great as we found out that it was Rory's night to play. Excellent entertainment Rory is so talented. Drinks are not overpriced considering the entertainment. Gutted that the next time we go to PDC Rory wont be there. Big loss to Lanzarote but good luck and best wishes to Rory and his family.

Having been meaning to visit this bar for 6 years now and not managing to go we finally had a meal in a harbour restaurant and i dragged my party in.We we're all glad of that because when the Island Bar claims to be the top bar for live music in PDC they are not lying.The show was incredible.Starting with an acoustic session by Rory,then a duo with Albert and then finally Pedro joins them,Rory goes on drums and the final set is just brilliant.Considering the quality of the entertainment the prices of the drinks are very reasonable and there is table service.Don't miss the chance for THE best nights entertainment of your holiday.

Absolutely fantastic night, we sat in the front and enjoyed every minute of it! The power cuts just made the night even more hilarious! Well done to the band for carrying on. Hope you fixed your guitar ;)

Simple decor, does get very hot inside, so dress down. Great music and atmosphere. Drinks reasonable, best to get here early if you want seats, band played till 0100 and by then it was very busy. Enjoyable night.
