Live Music in Half Moon Bay

The Coastside is home to unique, atmospheric venues for live music, from historic roadhouses to sleek cocktail lounges. You’ll even stumble upon an intimate jazz club hidden inside an old beach house that has played host to legends such as Stan Getz and Art Blakey. Whether you want to kick back to a solo pianist, or kick up your heels to a rollicking jam band, you’ll find an option that’s music to your ears.

Leave the stuffy concert halls behind. On the Coastside, you’ll enjoy intimate venues with atmosphere and a supportive, enthusiastic crowd. You’ll find reggae in a 1879 blacksmith shop-turned saloon, blues and brews on the oceanfront patio of a brewery, and a cozy downtown Italian spot where diners swirl homemade pappardelle to acoustic jazz guitar.

See our schedule of upcoming live music events below.
