If you ask a typical Valencian about the fun things to do in their city, it’s highly likely that a jam session will be near the top of the list.

So, read on to find out our recommendations on finding the best of the best…
Peter rock restaurant
You first stop could well be Peter Rock Restaurant.

Black note club
Established in 1993, Black Note Club prides itself in promoting only the best local talent. 4,000 gigs later, the venue is adored by students and local residents alike and their jam sessions are a big part of their reputation. The atmosphere at this club is unlike any other in Valencia and is somewhat of a hidden gem as it isn’t advertised in the more mainstream areas of the city, so be sure to check it out if you’re on the hunt for a more alternative jam session.
Address: Polo y Peylorón, 15 – 46021 – Valencia
Our third and final recommendation is The Vitti, has perhaps the best ambiance of all the jam session venues in the area. More professional and elegant as the other bars due to the caliber of the artists you will generally find there, the jam session is accessible but has its own air of sophistication. Located in one of the smarter areas of town, this venue may be better if you are looking to impress friends or maybe even a date but is definitely one of the best jam sessions you will find in Valencia.
Address: Plaça del Xúquer, 3, 46021 València
