Went to see the proclaimers here lovely little venue would go back again. Seating available without paying for it. Went to the restaurant next door before the gig and got entrance from there.

This is definitely my favorite music venue, I go there at least 1 a month, for the past 18 years, since I moved to the area. If you enjoy live music this is the best place in San Diego. The prices are right, the demographic eclectic and diverse. The venue brings a diverse selection of music for all the tastes.... More

This is a gem with great boost in acts recently. Been attending shows since 1979. Loft seating special. Pretty good sound (even at the bar seats).

We attended the Aug. 21st Burt Bacharach Concert here at Belly Up. Such an interesting place with a great welcoming, seated audience and my first time here. Burt came out holding his left arm at a weird angle, took the mic and explained he had a choice of going to the beach or the track the day before. I should... More

One of the best venues I have been at to listen to excellent music in a space with great sounds, service and atmosphere. Saw Blue Oyster Cult and it could not have been more hassle free than this- parking is easy, great restaurants in the area and in the venue there is good food and the service is excellent. With...

Overbearing fat security guard hassled me for photographing a performer, yet EVERY ONE around me did the same. I will never attend an event there agin, even if it were free.

This icon of rock, soul, jazz and other music styles is a favorite of some of the best performers in the world. It is small enough to really see the musicians and hear the intricacies of their melodies. If you are lucky enough to get a table you can also eat some delicious bar food and have a place to...

enjoyed some quieter music on a Thursday night with 2 excellent solo singer/guitar players...they combined on a few numbers. Live Music was wonderful, acoustics were good, seating plentiful, musicians personable and fine music!! Service was very good, bar/pub food was good (not huge selection, but a little of everything) and beer/wine selections good. The ambience and history of this place... More

I own a music venue so I know a little about this. The Belly Up is a great place to see live music. Well run, small enough to be close but big enough to get good talent.
