Spent a sat eve going to 4 different venues advertised as jazz venues as there was little or no info on the net about times of gigs. This was the only one that had anything on and it was as expected... Live jazz music.

Loved this place. very small so it gets very warm. €5 cover charge because, according to a local sat beside me, there were 2 very famous local musicians in attendance. very friendly staff also. highly recommended

Stumbled on this place last year and the live music was excellent. Came back again this year and the quality was just as good. Ended up visiting it 3 nights in a row. Great atmosphere and fantastic music.

Went there just last night having seen it on here. Roped in someone from the hostel and we both had a cracking time. We didn't pay an entrance fee and we didnt vet there until around midnight. The venue has a very intimate feel and the performers were very talented

We arrived just gone 9pm and the bans were setting up. By 10pm, they were rocking out and playing great numbers. We had to leave early, but would 100% return again. Word of warning: it's small, crowded and is a bar only (no food).

Alto is located in one of the side streets just off Leidseplein, It's surrounded by restaurants, cafes etc & it's a very small narrow bar & out of hours if you walked past it you wouldn't know it's there. I arrived around 9.15 just as the band were setting up their equipment & to be honest if you want one... More

We went on a wednesday evening, its a stereo typical small jazz club which i advise you to arrive early. where the band/s play there are 5 tables each side of the room which fill up quickly. The drink is of reasonable cost, 3.5 euro for a small beer. The house band on the night were utterly amazing musicians, we... More
