One of the best places to catch live music, Belly Up Tavern is located in Solana Beach, on Cedros Avenue, about 15 miles (24.14 kilometers) from La Jolla. Belly Up keeps an active agenda with a great variety of bands and acts from some of the most talented budding artists in the country. The space is small enough so that shows are fun and intimate, and at the same time, not so large that you feel lost in the crowd. The on-site bar keeps sensational drinks flowing, while the venue's restaurant serves a Bistro-style fare. Check venues website for most up-to-date event schedule. Belly Up also has a branch in Aspen, which offers programs parallel to the venue in Solana Beach.
