New Music Venues in Kelowna

new spaces and places to hear your favourite musicians and bands

The Kelowna area is seeing a bunch of venues making the decision, and the investment, to support the live music scene by bringing in local artists on a regular basis, and some of them are among the leading venues for gigs so far this year. If you're looking to try someplace new, any of these venues would surely welcome you into their spaces.

Grizzly Bear Bistro + Bar

This restaurant, located in Airport Village, has just started hosting live music and has gone from one live music event per week to four, with Friday and Saturday evenings along with brunches on Saturday and Sunday.

Hyatt Place Lounge

Next to the Spall Plaza, this new hotel has booked some jazz that will start the last week of February.

Lakesider Brewing

Across the bridge and over on the westside, Lakesider started bringing in live music late last year and is going steady on Saturday nights.

Mid-Town Station Kitchen + Drink

Over in the Landmark District, Mid-Town Station is now featuring blues on Tuesday evenings with Kelowna smooth blues artist James Hay holding court for the next couple months.

Mission Tap House

Just where Pandosy turns into Lakeshore just south of KLO, Mission Tap House is getting back into the live music scene with music on some Friday nights.

Salt & Brick

Located right on Bernard in downtown Kelowna, this restaurant has also begun hosting live music. For this venue, it's jazz on Friday nights, and then an eclectic mix of artists on Saturdays. Nice to see a venue right in the heart of Kelowna again.
