Music lovers are lucky to have plenty of things to do in San Diego that offer great music and astonishing performances. There are free performances every weekend at seaside parks or at the Organ Pavilion, and our symphony is one of the best in the country. However, if you’re looking for some good old rock and roll in a dark bar, nothing beats The Casbah.
Local acts and internationally touring artists alike hit the stage at this San Diego music scene staple which has been operating for almost three decades. Between bands you can grab a local craft beer which is always on draft and play some pool or classic arcade games in the back of the bar. Known for having one of the best sound systems in town, The Casbah is an ideal place to see your favorite band when they come through town. While it is mostly known for rock, the nightclub also features hip hop, DJs, pop acts, and just about any genre of music you can think of. Located just north of Little Italy, it’s easy to grab a bite to eat at one of the hottest restaurants in San Diego before heading over to a show, which typically doesn’t start until 9:00PM. Being in the crowd for a packed show at the Casbah is one of the top things to do in San Diego, no matter what time of year it is.
Even if you are unfamiliar with the band performing at the Casbah, it’s still a good idea to check it out if you’re looking for some fun things to do in San Diego this weekend. After all, this is the legendary local venue that hosted performances by Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, the White Stripes, and more, before they became platinum-selling artists. Ticket prices vary and the small club can sell out for bigger acts, so try to get tickets early when possible. Planning ahead will assure you entry to one of the coolest clubs in town.
Funbassadors can pick out a cool show at The Casbah and arrange for an unforgettable night of live music at a world-renowned venue. Funseekers can purchase a FunGig that gets them into the venue with an in-the-know local who can offer suggestions on how to enjoy the night to the fullest.
