Venue of the Day - Lava Bar

  • What drives you to bring live music to your area?

    We love to bring live music to Rotorua.
    Rotorua has such a varied taste in music and we try hard to accommodate everyone. We want to cater to our community and give them the opportunity to enjoy a great night out without having to leave our beautiful city. It is very fulfilling for us to see our people get excited about events.

    What days of the week do you have live music?
    We don't have live music every day of the week, we do have DJ's Wednesday to Sunday. And at least 1 or 2 live shows a month. We are currently working with remaster music to have regular open jam nights to showcase some local talents.

    Tell us about a favourite live music moment?
    My favourite? I'm not sure how to start! We have had so many amazing artists. We all really enjoyed Paua and we absolutely love Runtingz, they're part of our family. The artists I enjoyed and made me a little star struck was Herbs, they were so adorable and we loved them. We have never had a saxophone in the bar and it was beautiful.
