Having an rough-around-the-edges oasis in a city as picturesque as San Sebastián is worth its weight in indie bands. The neon-lit pallets of Dabadaba serve as the backdrop for bands from Japan to America. In the same week, you can hear an indie rock band from Seattle, trannie electro from Barcelona, and experimental folk from France. No other venue in town cares as much about bringing world-class yet small-stage acts to the local public.
And never fear, the group of young owners keeps their beverage offering equally hip and curated, so you will be able to try Spain's coolest vermouths and the local craft beers. Go for a concert, or go during the day, when Dabadaba becomes a light filled, Wi-fi sporting cafe, great for getting some work done or meeting up with a friend.
