Went to see some music, most of the tables were reserved when we arrived about 15 mins prior to the gig starting, so you may want to book in advance. Decided to have a drink, 500ml beer was a ridiculous €7. There was an entry...More

I went to the PopulArt Jazz Club last February and this July. I've been there 5 times. It's a small venue and it can be tricky getting a seat. I was lucky enough each time to get one. I believe the 3 euro nights are...More

Central bar up the road was full so ended up here. Much cheaper to get in. €3 versus €18 in central. Food not worth it, but music and fun well worth it

We came by to listen to some light jazz music, and that's what we got. Standing in a crowded bar, drinking wine, listening to the music. Fun. It was nice to see how varied the crowd was - from youngster to oldsters, hipsters to geeksters,...More

An excellent place to listen to some smooth jazz! Because of the FREE entrance it gets packed once the music starts, but we found a spot to sit and enjoy the great music and our very reasonably priced 3.5€ beers! Certainly has an atmosphere and...More

Get there early since it gets crowded fast. Went to see a swing band and their performance was amazing. The drinks were nicely served although the waiter kept pushing us to get more drinks. Would recommend it.

Was recently in Cafe Populart for their new opening and was completely blown away by the new service, food, and drinks - not to mention the music! This is a great place to go when visiting the city or if you just fancy live music...More

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes

them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
