Owner description: Live music and Karaoke bar owned and run by Geoff and Linda - a friendly relaxed bar offering top sports on TV and promoting local musicians, great live spots various nights during the week; other nights see Karaoke fun into the wee small hours. Live music features often during the week and the bar closing at 2am. Open from lunchtime to the early hours and longer when everyone is still enjoying themselves. Geoff says "We aim to provide a comfortable, relaxing but fun atmosphere, where anyone can get up to sing and be appreciated - we want to provide a place where visitors can have fun, relax, enjoy themselves and leave with good memories of a holiday made great by coming in and getting to know us!" So when you're coming to Playa Blanca call in and see us - you'll be made very welcome. But don't leave it to the last night of your holiday - you'll wish you came sooner! We also offer guest spots to people who may have performing experience in other places and be coming on holiday. Special celebrations are our pleasure and this year we have partied on for 40th 50th 60th 18th and wedding anniversaries! special themed evenings and party mights are frequent.

“Best bar in playa blanca.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Myself, husband and daughter spent nearly every night in this bar during our weeks holiday, the owners Geoff and Linda were fantastic hosts and by the end of the week good friends. They couldn't have been any more friendly or helpfull. My husband wanted somewhere to watch the England match on Wednesday night and Geoff made sure it was on. As for the karaoke it was fab, every night was a party atmosphere and if you wanted a song that they did not have Linda would try her best to get it. Met some lovely people and some very talented singers. Elvis tribute was very good and got everyone to join in. Would advise anyone going to playa blanca to visit this bar, you wont be dissapointed. Well done Geoff and Linda hope to see you next year thank you and charlotte loves her pressent.

Hello Julie what a shame you didn't contact me before you came or mentioned this to anyone who would know! As you know the bar is run between Geoff and
I and I am in England at the moment; this leaves Geoff on his own. he has been closing on quiet nights but it is not true to say the bar has been closed every night! it has been open but if there are few customers or entertainment has finished trhen Geoff has closed - one person would be too tired to open the long hours we do between us! I am back next week have a lovely holiday!

“Rude...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Very disappointed with the owner she ran out of chairs and she said to me if anyone else comes in the kids will have to get up from their chairs... Absolutely a disgrace the kids were drinking water €3 a bottle more expensive than the local beer.. I would never go in there again..

Well thank goodness we have the opportunity to put the record straight. I am sorry you felt that it was rude to say to you that ""I may have to ask the 2 boys to move" from a table that could seat 4 adults which they were not using, to another place; They were busy with an I-pad and seated away from your family group in any event;. We try to ensure everyone is comfortable and it is quite a small bar so we do need all our space as far as possible; incidentally a bottle of water is 1,50€ and the boys had one each.

“don't forget your maracas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Heard the one about the bar where everyone knows your name? Well it could have been written about Busker's bar. It is a really friendly, bar where you end up talking to people straight away. I also heard some really fantastic singing, enhanced by the highly participative atmosphere. Geoff and Linda use their skills from previous lives to make it a welcoming and fun place to spend some time frequented by people of all ages. Who knew Elvis was from Barnsley?

“Best bar in Playa Blanca!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Think previous reviewer has mistaken this bar for either Irish Anvil or Legends, which are both closed at the moment. We are currently in PB and have been to Buskers three times since our arrival on Tuesday.

Lovely owners who always make you feel welcome, friendly atmosphere and lively karaoke.

Great bar!
