The Guatemalan capital is home to a burgeoning music scene that deserves far more attention. Read on to find out about the best places to see live music in the city.
First up is Trova Rock, a metal bar in a fairly insalubrious corner of Zone 1. You might want to get a taxi there and back, but once you’re inside the atmosphere is both friendly and raucous. Another good spot for rock fans is Esperanto in Zone 10, a small neighborhood bar that also hosts regular gigs.
Check out La Erre for experimental electronic performances, as well as art shows and cultural gatherings, or head to Proyecto Poporopo. Both venues are known to have their finger on the pulse of new musical developments.
MonoLoco in Zone 10 might feel like a sports bar with its seemingly endless number of screens, but it’s also known for its live music program. Check out the website for the latest listings, and make sure you’re hungry when you visit because the food is great, too.
For something more traditionally Latin American, check out Trova Jazz in Zone 4. There are regular trova nights as well as performances from some of the biggest names in traditional musical styles from throughout the continent. Another good option is La Esquina Jazz Café in Zone 2, where you can eat as you watch the house band play away throughout the night.
