Met a group of friends in Solana Beach to see the group Engllsh Beat at the Belly Up Tavern. This is a very cool venue in a trendy area of Solana Beach. The Belly Up is doing everything right. Great service, very clean, and a super layout . Can't wait to come back!

This is a warm-feeling, spacious and acoustically wonderful venue for music and a date-night out. Good wine - friendly servers (even during the performance - they were totally unobtrusive) - concert was a winner. First time seeing The Accidentals - two energy-charged young women and a guy who plays djembe like nobody's business; find them and go see them! Will... More

Saw Jonny Lang here, and he put on a great show. The place has an interesting set up and I recommend getting here early enough if you want a choice view. There are some obstructed sight lines so check it out unless you just want to stand in front of the stage. Nice intimate enough venue with good sound.

Took my wife and son to see Three Dog Night at the Belly Up. The place is an internationally well known venue for local, national and international entertainers. They have hosted many huge entertainers (see The Rolling Stones). It is a small venue (about 600 people) with no reservations. Come early and enjoy the wait so you can get a... More

I have been going to the Belly Up Tavern for 40 years and never disappointed in the musical talent. Great place to dance or just listen. FUN, FUN, FUN.

We saw The Proclaimers at the Belly Up last night. It was our first venture into what we have long heard was an excellent venue. It didn't disappoint. The staff was friendly and efficient; the acoustics were good and the atmosphere was ideal; not to big, not to small. Parking was abundant (and free!!). We will definitely be paying attention...
