Great sound and intimate location for concerts of local and world-reknown musicians. Be sure to have a bite at the adjacent Blue Note Cafe and be in line early for best seating.

Probably the best spot to watch live music in San Diego! They always have a marquee line up on their concert schedule!

A great little venue for entertainment. Small and intimate....could use more sitting room.

The Belly Up is a great place to see a show, and relax with a beer just around the corner from the beach.

While small and intimate, they avoid feeling cramped with unusually high vaulted ceilings, great lighting, and working air conditioning (usually the weak point of giant crowds). Standing room up front, with tables in the back (you even can get service at the table during a show), and loft seating available, they are polished and professional. Huge bar and serviceable kitchen. Ticket prices are very reasonable.

They get great acts from all over the country and represent just about every style of music. Oh, and let's not forget the giant 25 foot shark hanging from the ceiling, or Prince Harry's visit a few years ago.

Great venue to see a show. Intimate setting with a great sound. Seen some some classic acts here as they consistently get top talent to perform there. Situated in Solana Beach and is walking distance to other bars, restaurants and the beach. A travel tip if you're coming from out of town... take the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner Train. You can walk to the Belly Up from the station!

I only recently went to the Belly Up for a concert and it was a great venue. Very intimate and lots of room for dancing. The food and drinks were also great and priced fairly.

Such a wonderful venue for every kind of genre of music where every seat in the house is great! The food is pretty decent if you don't have time to hit the attached restaurant Wild Note Cafe prior to the show. This place has been consistently great for year after year of fantastic live music!

A live music night club located in Solana Beach. This 21 and up bar/club hosts a wide array of musical events, ranging from nationally known artists to local bands. They get tremendous shows in a fairly small, intimate venue.

Great venue to catch a concert. And they attract some pretty well known artists. It's mostly general admission but there are some loft seats too.

I don't know how old you are, but if you're over 21 then the Belly Up Tavern is a great place to spend New Year's Eve. The intimate setting allows for a great view of the stage no matter where you are in the building, the staff is all super friendly, and the musical lineup is one of the best in the country. If you're under 21, I'd suggest heading down to Mission Beach (near the roller coaster). There are always lots of house parties going on down there, and you're bound to run into someone you know!
