Live music sounds even better on the beach. That's why one of our favorite ways to wind down a day visiting the Space Coast in Florida is to listen to local jams.
Here are our favorite 10 venues to listen to live music on the Space Coast – each boasting a unique experience. Some are in interesting locations, like Open Mike's (housed in a musical instrument shop) and Stemz (inside a flower shop and bistro). Open Mike's, one of the area's newest stages, is also one of our newest favorites. Score free music lessons here several times a week.
If you're looking for more free lessons, the Neptune Bar and Grill offers free dance lessons. Make your own music at Neptune's karaoke night, and every weekend, you can catch live music here in the indoor lounge.
At Off The Traxx, when not watching your favorite sports games on this sports bar's TVs, you can shake it on the dance floor to live tunes on the stage. Another top bet is Matt's Casbah with its live jazz on the patios on Sunday afternoons. The younger crowd will enjoy Coconuts, an oceanside bar with music nearly every day of the week. And for the best blues in town, hit up Lou's Blues.
