Visiting Amsterdam for our Easter holiday we ended up visiting this great place three nights in a row. Really good jazz in a cozy small place. Staff was very friendly and the beer surprisingly cheap given that the entrance was free most nights.

Stopped by a few minutes after they opened which was a very good idea as we got a nice corner spot to sit at the bar. The music played by the band was very entertaining. The bartender was pleasant and stayed busy. The Belgium beer that I don’t recall the name that was on draft was the best tasting beer I have ever had! I’m still craving for it, so refreshing! We will be back next year for another well spent night!

Having looked at the other jazz clubs on trip advisor we decided to go for this one as it opens earliest and reviews looked good. We found and nice seat and had some drinks whilst watching the band set up. The music was brilliant, front man was hilarious. Got speaking to some locals and they said this was the best one in town. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a chilled evening with a great atmosphere

No better place to spend an evening out.
Original jazz atmosphere.
Jack Kerouac would have loved it.
