One of our visits was where people could bring their musical instruments and jam with the band. There were two guitarists, a drummer, and a keyboardist who came... More

A little bit of the Big Easy in the middle of Amsterdam. Always beautiful live music. A great place for a beer and looking to the Amsterdam people, but an even better place to dance. Blues, jazz, country, rock, rock&rolllllll...

We went on trip advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. We arrived a bit before the doors opened but as they were all set up and ready to go they let us in anyway. Small and comfortable. The funky blues band killed the covers they were playing. The trickiest part of the evening was finding our hotel :-)

I went out just for one night to Bourbon street, while I was visiting Amsterdam, but it was really great! The band was playing live covers of popular rock songs and atmosphere was great. People danced and sang and it was very pleasant. Drinks are diverse and not too expensive - 6 Eur for one pint of beer. Place is... More

We were looking for a bit of live music, and were not disappointed at bourbon street. Drinks were quite pricey, but with free entrance before 2300 for excellent live music and fast friendly service. Definitly worth checking out

We were planning on just popping in, checking it out for a bit and then going to another bar. However we found ourselves staying in our seat (periodically getting up to dance) untill 2 or 3 in the morning. The place has a nice and chilled atmosphere, drinks are a good price! but the band that were playing all night... More
