Since 1974 this legendary live music outpost in Solana Beach has showcased under-the-radar bands as well as big-name artists across all genres—rock, blues, jazz, country, reggae, hip hop. Anyplace that can move from Pat Benatar to Ziggy Marley to a Neil Diamond cover band without missing a beat must be doing something right. It's a quirky spot, tucked inside a pair of WWII-era Quonset huts, with a laid-back, beachy vibe and a large shark hanging from the rafters. More importantly for music lovers, the venue offers quality acoustics, great sight lines, room to groove, and two easy-access bars.
