Handpicked by a Malaga Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Guide to gig venues in Málaga'.

Málaga has a lot of very well equipped concert and music venues. The larger ones are in the west of town located in large warehouses and industrial units, while the smaller venues are in the old town or the residential area around the avenida de Andalucia. Always check times as some concerts start punctually in the earlier hours while other venues might not get going until gone midnight. So you could realistically catch three different groups in three different venues in one night!

Sala Trinchera

Sala Trinchera is a dedicated mid-scale concert venue with a 600 person capacity that plays host to a wide variety of exciting groups, many forms overseas. Its size and sound installation mean it is a major venue for important touring bands, but is not too big to be impersonal. Prices are very reasonable, and the programme features the best of Spanish rock, pop and soul, and regular international ...

Sala Paris 15

Sala Paris 15 is the daddy of concert venues in Malaga. With its excellent access and design, airconditioning and flexible space, its large bar areas, this is a palace of music in the form of a giant warehouse where 3000 people can enjoy live shows with great sound and great facilities. It has played host to many world famous groups and DJs and is only exceeded in size as an indoor venue by an ind...



Liceo is one of Málaga's most venerable and popular nightspots. It has been a regular in the nightlife scene since 1993, and as a nightclub offers one of the most individual and stylish venues in town. While it has all the lighting, design, sound system and atmosphere of a good nightclub, all of this is adapted to the host building, which is none other than a 19th Century Palace. So you have fabu...

Sala Spectra

Sala Spectra is a centrally located nightspot featuring a variety of musical forms and live bands. They play host to EDM and DJ sessions, Latin music, reggae, swing and more. There are dance sessions and classes at times to accompany certain artists. It's a late one as you would expect. Open every Friday and Saturday and some Thursdays. Entrance fee is usually with a free drink....

Rooster Rock Bar

Rooster Rock Bar is a hard rocking pub where ypou can drink, listen to rockist sounds, watch videos and take part in social events, like video games tournaments. Located near La Termica, it's a neighbourhood rock bar, well out of the centre, and obviously patronised by the locals. But if you'd rather drink to a soundtrack of rock rather than reggaeton or house, then say no more....

The Hall

The Hall is a small friendly venue close to the main railway station that is a multipurpose venue offering arts events, live music, theatre, comedy and cabaret. IT is a pretty eclectic affair. Visiting groups wanting to promote themselves regularly hire it out, so you can catch up and coming bands that might not get booked in the much more commercial venues. It also hosts regualr jazz gigs and jam...

La Nave

La Nave Málaga is a social and cultural centre that functions partly as a nightclub. The project has already taken off and is picking up speed, bringing on board a multitude of networks and social and cultural initiatives that, as the organisers repeat, are nothing more than a reflection of a city in motion. They present an intense and eclectic program of workshops, debates, screenings, h...

ZZ Pub

ZZPub is an institution in the Málaga live music scene. A small, funky, crowded bar with great sounds across all the genres and live bands five days a week. It's always free to get in, is open to until very late and never fails to be fun. Bands are invariably local bands but generally the best of them, and you'll always find rock, soul, swing, funk, blues and even punk going on during the month. ...

The Clarence Jazz Club

The Clarence is THE jazz venue for Malaga and the coast. It recently moved to a new venue in Torremolinos but continues its mission of bringing the best local and ninternational players to the Costa. Over 200 artists a year visit this specially designed and equipped club, with its modernist New York style interior which can seat 70 spectators, with standing room for more. The bar features an inter...

Sala Eventual Music

Sala Eventual Music doesn't just put on concerts, it helps create the bands that play them. It is also one of Málaga's longest established and well-equipped rehearsal suites with ten airconditioned studios fully equipped for local bands to rehearse in. Weekends feature their won promotions in the dedicated concert hall with a capacity of 1200. They feature local and nationally known artists, them...

La Cochera Cabaret

La Cochera is one of Málaga's most diverse venues. This multidisciplinary space offers live shows in theatre and dance, magic and circus, kids entertainment, live music, spoken word, and also hosts workshops and training, artistic gatherings, exhibitions and festivals. Thanks to a long struggle by the team to obtain and convert a suitable building, and with the aid of subsidy from the town hall a...

La Térmica

La Térmica is a fabulous old building just over a 100 years old. It was originally built and an orphanage and sanitorium and its lofty wide corridors and tall windows have an unmistakeable institutional air about it, and it once could have appeared quite intimidating. Its history has been turbulent, as has Spain's until democracy was restored. In 2013 the Málaga provincial government opened the ...
