Fun place to head to for music and entertainment. They can sell out pretty rapidly so be sure to purchase your tickets early.

We dined late one evening in their outside street dining area. Music being piped was all British bands from the 1960s - EXACTLY our era. Very good waitress and well prepared food.

Great place to see live music. Small but cozy and not a lot of young drunk people crashing into you. They have a great sound system. If you want to see someone get your tickets early. This place sells out fast

We've gone to several concerts at this cozy venue. It's a bit too cozy as the little metal chairs are very close together. The reserved seating above is much more comfortable and has wait service. Belly Up is a bit disorganized and don't always open...More

This is definitely my favorite music venue, I go there at least 1 a month, for the past 18 years, since I moved to the area. If you enjoy live music this is the best place in San Diego. The prices are right, the demographic...More

This is a gem with great boost in acts recently. Been attending shows since 1979. Loft seating special. Pretty good sound (even at the bar seats).

The restaurant is a-joining but next door its nit intended that you hear the music from there. Belly Up is primarily a bar with music. There are some seats but most people stand.
