Akerbeltz is a little underground dive bar that plays great music. It's got a small terrace overlooking the port, which I think is one of the nicest places to drink outside in San Sebastián, and they've got a very strong list of craft beers, something like 30 of them now, many of them local. The music is soul, rock and roll and a bit of ska - in other words, the music I like.
