The Sax Bar - a great venue for live music

Search This Site

The Sax Bar is found on the left of Patch as you walk towards the ocean.

It is down some steps and you can easily watch all the goings-on from the street, as it's pretty much open-air.

It is slightly mis-named, as there is not a single saxophone in sight! There is live music, however and it has become a bit of a tradition for this music to be of a slightly "heavy metal" nature.

Resident for a long time at this bar was legendary rock guitarist Ian Rockcliffe.

Sadly, Ian died suddenly of a heart attack in 2009.
He'll be sorely missed.

Live music continues, however and, after a stint of more reserved, "quiet" music, the Sax Bar is once again carrying on the rock music tradition.

The premises have been revamped and there appears to be more room now. The stage area has moved to the opposite end of the venue and is larger. On offer - every night - is heavy rock music from a totally live band. This starts at 10pm and goes on till 12:30.

The atmosphere of the bar is pretty laid back and informal and great for lovers of truly live music.

As far as I know, the bar is owned by the one-time drummer from 70s punk band, the Skids and he may get up and do a few songs, too. (Surprisingly enough, he'll do stuff by Sinatra and Nat King Cole!)

The drinks are normal Tenerife prices, you get a free shot every time you order one and there are complementary peanuts on each table, replenished throughout the evening.
