A place with a lot of history. First it was a cinema, the Aristos (1943-1965). After a theater, El Moratín (1967-1974). In 1974 it was again a cinema, maintaining the name of Moratín. Subsequently, in 1982 it was opened to the public as a cabaret, La Belle Epoque; a cabaret that was open almost fourteen years, until 1995. That same year, on September 26, the Luz de Gas concert hall was born. The first, the concert that opened it, with another Luz, Luz Casal.

Luz de Gas, two spaces
Luz de Gas has two spaces: the main concert hall, with a rococo decoration of large chandeliers and velvety red curtains that would have enchanted David Lynch of Twin Peaks, and the so-called Sala B, the disco, where music is programmed to dance and other events. With more than 1000 live performances since 1995, Luz de Gas basically programs live music of all kinds of styles every night it is opened, but also offers stand-up comedies, magic and other types of shows. From 12:00 am, if there is no concert, it works as a disco.
- Wednesday and Thursday from 11:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.
- Friday and Saturday from 11:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
- Sunday from 5:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
- Monday and Tuesday: closed
The opening hours of Luz de Gas may vary on the days of concerts, check the programming.
