Live Music Venue Basel

Hi All,

Are there any live music venues in Basel? I have walked around down town but onlysaw pubs and bars, no live bands. Not looking for a massive music hall just a small space where local type bands play. Is the music scene in Switzerland big? Thanks!

In the place we went for drinks, they have a Monday Jazz night... Though I wonder now if it's live.
Also I want to check http://www.birdseye.ch they have it live for sure.

I also got the following suggestions from some Swiss people I met the other day:
Volkshaus
Kaserne
Quersfeld

Will probably check them out at some point soon so if your interested let me know.

Re: Live Music Venue Basel

The Z7 venue in Pratteln is about the most visited venue in the Basel area. It is a heavy rock /metal type large hall in an industrial area and great for that kind of stuff, but don't expect 5 star hotel class lavatories. I have seen several big names there like Journey, Porcupine Tree, Blackfield and IQ for example.

Re: Live Music Venue Basel

I have seen some pretty good live bands at Red Rocks, near Huewaage. But not on all days, so may be next time you head there (it’s a nice bar in any case) you can figure out days when they have live bands

Cargo bar also has live music from time to time - http://www.cargobar.ch/cargobar/musik/livesound.html

and this site provides a quick overview on what's going on in Basel e.g. live music:

I know exactly what you mean and I dont think there is anything quite alike in Basel... at least not as far as I know.

But maybe I wrong. I'd love to be enlightened! So does anyone here know a simple, plain pub where you can sit at a table and enjoy a beer while listening to some indie band on a little stage in the corner... A pub like you would find all over the place in SanFran or Montréal. Anyone?

As far as I know there are no pubs that have bands playing regularly like you have described. There are a few live music venues, however, some of which have been mentioned already...

The hirscheneck is a good pub/restaurant which has bands playing regularly, but it is in the basement and you have to pay (it is quite cheap though)

Re: Live Music Venue Basel

Not sure if it counts as live music venue but if you like electronic music, I can definetely suggest Hinterhof. Really good "real" Electronic music performers play at the weekends.

Re: Live Music Venue Basel

You can't go wrong with z7 if you like a bit of rock, seen some decent acts there over the year.

Kaserne is also a nice place especially in the summer.

Sommercasino is more grungy and full of youths drinking outside, which I used to partake in the good old days
