Jazz, world & blues concerts

There's a clear passion for jazz, blues and world music in Amsterdam, as evidenced by the world-class international players that continually return to the city's top quality jazz venues, cafés and concert halls.

Bimhuis: Amsterdam's legendary jazz venue

The Bimhuis was one of the first venues to put Amsterdam jazz firmly on the map as a leader in Europe. The venue shares a bespoke performance space with the Muziekgebouw aan ´t IJ, with a wood-panelled room that caters to the best Dutch players and a revolving array of international jazz talents  – always with outstanding acoustics and atmosphere.

Amsterdam jazz cafés

Amsterdam's legendary cafés used to be smoke-filled with free-flowing booze. The smoke is missing these days, but the booze and their iconic music reputation remains. Shuffle into Tough Tenor (formerly known as Café Alto), Bourbon Street, the Cotton Club or Maloe Melo and you'll uncover lively jam sessions and impromptu gigs.

Jazz in every other corner

Other key spots to catch jazz in Amsterdam include the pop venues Melkweg and Paradiso. And the Royal Concertgebouw also hosts regular jazz performances in its smaller halls – as well as gigs from the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw and the Metropole Orchestra in the main hall.
