Where to Listen to Live Music in Manly

Whilst live music in vast arena-style concerts have been put on hold for the moment, live music is still playing in more intimate venues across Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia. The live music scene is thriving in Manly, from smooth jazz to hip-hop, grunge and indie rock—whatever you’re into, we have the best live music bars for your gig-going pleasure.

Choose from cosy venues where you can unwind with a glass of wine on a romantic night out or a cool cocktail bar for the ultimate girls’ night out in Manly.

If you’re on vacation in Sydney or just looking for a bit of an evening adventure, leave the car at home and head to Manly on the ferry to check out the talented live musicians at various venues around town.

Don’t forget to do your homework first.  Venues have capped numbers and some require bookings whilst others operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

Before the live music starts you might be able to enjoy a drink at happy hour or a food special. So put on your dancing shoes and head out in search of some great live music in Manly this week, you never know who you might discover (or rediscover).

Here’s your rocking Manly Live Music guide!
