The lights go down very low in the Búho Real, and the spots come up on a tiny stage. The size limitations here dictate the acts – expect local jazz or acoustic groups, most of them just two- or three-piece bands. The name means the 'Royal Owl', which goes some way towards explaining the large collection of minature owls on display. The fact that it’s such a small venue also gives it a cosy feel; unlike in the large concert halls, the singers perform very close to the public, giving a feeling of proximity to the music. The bills feature plenty of singer-songwriters, and it's a good place to discover new talent.
