Can anyone suggest places good for the evenings... somewhere with live music perhaps?

Answer the question

If you like Jazz/blues, you can go to Hot club/Missy Sippy. If you prefer some rock/metal/alternative, the kinky star is the place to be. You've got "de Vlasmarkt" and "Sint-jacobs", these are popular area's in Ghent with a lot of cosy cafés with live music from time to time.

Thank you Zoe, that is very helpful. Probably not the kinky star as I am not keen on rock/metal. Is Missy Sippy the same place as hot club?
No, it's a different place, not so far from each other.

Great. Thank you Zoe. If they are close to each other perhaps we can do both.
Yes you definitely can, they're like a 5min walk from each other.

Dear Ghentians,
Thank you for a wonderful trip. We love your beautiful city.
The suggestions you gave us were really helpful. We went to both Hot Club and Missy Sippy and they were both great places. We had a great dinner in Amadeus and also tried the Ghent Stew (both the chicken one and the traditional fish Waatersoi?). We made full use of our Ghent pass on the boat trip and the tram. Even the bad weather didn't put us off as there were so many places to visit.
We will definitely be back.

There are always a lot of gigs/concerts in Ghent. What kind of music do you prefer? Electronic or acoustic? Do you like small and cosy place or more public? ...

Thank you Mathias. We both have eclectic tastes,from jazz to funk to reggae to folk etc but I don't much like heavy rock music. Again small and cozy is lovely for a relaxed evening but we both also love to dance so a lively venue is fine. We are not in our youth any more though.
Hot Club de Gand if you're up for some jazz
