“Great Night with Great Music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

first time in Costa Teguise and we had a blast at La Vida....

We was walking around town one evening and the bars were either Karaoke singers or dead, when we see the sign for the Ska Souls I had to check it out.

When we approached the bar, they guy outside explained the warm-up would be on in a while and then the Ska Souls, we went back half hour later and the music and singing was on the go.

when the Ska Sous came on we recognised the singer as the warm up but that was no bother as he is quite a good singer and certainly knows all the words!!

great night loads of Ska and regea hits and all played with enthusiasm.. despite a small crowd we had a blast, we certainly did not witness any drink being forced on anyone as previous reviews have refered too and one guy sat with a glass of wine in front of him all night and was not bothered by staff in any way shape or form.

great venue, clean and modern, friendly staff , our best night in Lanzarote so thanks to every one at La Vida.

“**** Live Music Lovers & No Bad Behaviour ****”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Had been in Costa Teguise in 2013 and had walked past this place, no music on at that time so put it down to a quiet night - However re found it again this year June 2014 and have to say this place caters for the older clientele, not ancient or over the hill just people who appreciate good music from various decades, genres and want to listen, have a drink and chill out with friends, family etc without any hassles. Those ill behaved, rowdy, really drunk individuals that usually spoil it for you on a night out are politely asked to behave, if they refuse they are asked to leave - simple rules, rules that are applied back here in the UK so no reason why they should be different on holiday - you spend a lot of money to go away to enjoy yourself, The singer Drew was a great guy, able to turn his hand to lots of different styles, types of music and happy to involve the crowd by letting you pick your fav band and then he sings a song from them, if its not your fav song tough lol but if its your fav band who cares, Ska night was good, 80's was even better but disappointed we had to fly home and miss the Monday night when Jackie was going to sing some Communards etc - Friendly, approachable staff, clean tidy bar and toilets, always kept smelling fresh and clean - great place - it might not be to everyone's taste but if you like live music then what have you got to lose give it a bash

“Another Visit , another top night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We 'stumbled' upon La Vida on our trip to Costa Teguise last year so we were looking forward to another visit whilst in Teguise again this year. We were not disappointed , it was as good as last year if not better. Drew's vocals & range of songs still hitting the spot with tastes to suit most age ranges. I also thought Drew's interaction with the customers was very good & was always trying to get the crowd involved. As usual the bar is very smart, clean & a great place to spend the night - which we did on most nights.
Once again - thanks for some great nights , loving everything from - Lou Reed/ Kinks n Floyd thru to Blamange / China Crisis/ Joy Division , in fact it's like having your own personal singer.
Sadly we were unable to say thanks in person to Drew & his staff as on our last night in the resort we went there as usual not realising it was closed on a Monday, so if you read this Drew - many thanks for another great few nights.....

great to see you back again and your comment about our 1% haters is bang on they always moan when they have to buy a drink , they now have the option of paying €10 entry if they dont wish to help subsidise the FREE musicians by buying a drink ... that should keep em away eh

Fortunately when it comes to La Vida there are less of them and more of us , its about quality and people who can respect others , rather than 50 year old delinquents who fell off the Jeremy kyle sofa and came on holiday for some attention , we will however continue to strive to make sure THE REAL PEOPLE dont have their night spoiled by drunken attention seekers
