The Swedish American Hall is a venue above the Cafe Du Nord on Market Street. Built in 1907, the grand ballroom was a speakeasy during Prohibition and still has its old decor. Fold-down seats make it feel a little like school assembly, but the hall has great acoustics and provides good sized folk and rock concerts at a reasonable price.
Gala Hala is 10 to 15 minute's walk from the beautiful historic center of Ljubljana - but quite a contrast.
Located in a less touristy area of town among graffiti-covered buildings, the cosy venue is oriented toward punk rock, metal and ska, and also hosts hip-hop and dub nights. Visitors over the years have included The Toasters and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes as well as small European bands.
In the summer you can enjoy the larger outdoor stage (Letni oder Gala Hala) and drink a well-priced lager under the stars while chatting with friendly locals.
