When you think of visiting Malaga, images of tapas, flamenco, sun and sand, might come to your mind. But, have you ever thought of what to do when the sun sets? Malaga is home to a very modest but very cool jazz festival. During the month of October, the streets fill with live jazz music. Bands play on many squares of the historical center, bringing the best tunes to the masses.
But what if you’re not coming in October? Not to worry, there’s still plenty of bars where you can listen to good live jazz… if you know where to look. It might not be as plentiful as New York’s West Village or Berlin’s eclectic bar scene, but there are many cool venues where you can listen to live jazz in Malaga.
