stumbled on this place as a facebook friend plays his music there at the end of the year , it was a fantastic night(s),we went more than once! great atmosphere ,funny banter,fantastic music they did an open mic session as well. Just loved it made our holiday! I know it helps when you know the musician but David Whyatt and Friends know how to belt out a tune and entertain! going to Corralejo then visit Rock Island Bar we will be cack later in the year to enjoy the vibe again!

If you love music, this is the bar to go to in Corralejo. There is live music every night of the week. Excellent guitar playing, with sometimes a little bit of comedy thrown in. Mandy (one of the owners) is usually serving behind the bar and always greets you with a lovely smile. Not ideal for small children, but children are welcome

Even after more than 10 holidays in Corralejo and visits during each of them to Rock Island it remains simply the best music venue and bar in town.

Dave, Gary and Johnny entertained us with songs new and old to us and thoroughly entertained us with their musical ability and their humour.

We even mananged to stay up until 02:00 on night and follow Dave and Gary to Waikiki where they formed part of a rock group with a guitarist and drummer from Rock Cafe. Our ears are still recovering but a further demonstation to us of thier musical talent.

You have to pay a visit to Rock Island

The interior was super cool. Being a fan of dive bars with a rockabilly twist, this was perfect. You can tell the owners really wanted to create an "upscale" yet "at home" rock bar. The only problem is (sorry, guys!) the music was terrible. The owner (sorry, again) plays with his pals every-so-often and it's all the hits, which you do not want to hear. Granted, they are playing to the tourists. We tried to go in the late afternoon/early evening to avoid the Dave Matthews Reject Cover Band, but they were always closed. All said and done, we wanted to return, it was a cool, cool bar; great atmosphere, cheap drinks, all around awesome - just please, someone get the owner off of the mic. I know you own the place, but stop abusing your privileges.

Hi ilusasha, many thanks for your review, although I think you may have us confused with another bar. We don’t have bands playing at the Rock Island bar, just solo or duo acoustic acts. Either way, we hope to see you at the Rock Island on you next visit to the island :)
