Granada’s unofficial status as the bohemian hub of Andalucia means it boasts some superb venues for live music. On offer, besides the local speciality of flamenco, are clubs and bars offering blues, jazz and rock. There are also unbeatable opportunities to see Granada’s emerging and alternative musicians.

If you’re passing though Granada and want somewhere central and well-priced to stay you couldn’t do much better than Lemon Rock, a bar and hostel a few minutes walk from the cathedral and Gran Via. What makes this quirky joint even better, though, is the quality and range of its live music, particularly the jazz and acoustic performances it hosts several times a week. The ‘stage’, if you can call it that, is in the middle of an internal atrium that has balconies on every level, making it possible to watch the musicians perform from above. This place is very cool indeed, and it knows it.
