Best Live Gig Venue in Hyderabad

Text: Anahita Ahuja

The music scene hasn’t been any better than it is now in Hyderabad. With orchestras and bands, both small and big, traveling from all over the world, the number of live music venues in the city has gone up too. With it finding more takers, you have the best music being played at a cafe or a bar just around the corner from your home or office. Fact is that there is something intensely personal about watching a live music performance. And, much like snowflakes, no two performances are ever the exact same — even if it is the same piece of art being performed.

We’ve curated a list of places you simply must go to if watching a gig is what you call a good night out. Whatever genre it may be – from rock to jazz, you’re sure to find a live act at one of these venues. Perhaps it’ll be an acclaimed band, an almost-famous one or even a future Grammy-winning outfit on their debut night, these places will hook you up with beats, riffs, and solos, all played live.

About the place… It is your quintessential Bombay Irani Café and bar with all its idiosyncrasies in place and brings forth the dying legacy of the wonderful, bustling, colorful, quirky, cluttered, eccentric and so real world of an Irani café.
