    Bourbon Street: Live Blues

    by heryanta Written Aug 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bourbon street is a small club off Leidseplein. Small, as it can probably hold only 60-70 people.

    They are open from 10pm to 5am on Fridays and Saturdays; otherwise until 4am.

    There is a small cover charge, I can't remember exactly (it's been a while) but I think it's 5 Euro.

    Be advised, even though the establishment adverts itself as a "Blues Club" oftentimes during the weekend they will have pop & rock bands playing top 40 hits from the last 15 years.

    Overall a pretty cool place, always busy (and can get a bit claustrophobic at times) and cozy.

  • Liedseplein: Never sleeps

    by Hooverboy Written Nov 22, 2005

    Having been to Amsterdam on three seperate occasions, i have been lucky to sample different areas of this vast city. First time was as a couple and was mostly around Rembrandt square area where there is lots of restaurants/bars to venture into - although this is also a nightclub area after 10pm. Lots of british type bars here.
    Other regions have been Red light area where bars are scattered between the notorious fench windows! More of a bloke spot this one.
    Liedseplein is the `late` area where you can cassually take a late drink in the bars or venture off to Bourbon bar to chill out with some live blues music until 4am and beyond.

    Dress Code: Smart casual mainly.

  • Bourbon Street: Small and lively

    Wonderful place to see live music in a quaint setting. There is almost no seating to speak of, but with the right music you won't mind. I've visited twice on two different trips, and it was amazing to see an 80s cover band the first time, and pure jazz the second. It will get a little crowded but was never impossible to get a drink, probably due to the location. Great time if you're a music lover.

    Bourbon Street: The street with no shame...

    Small, intimate bluesclub, where live music is played every night. The atmosphere is great! Famous musicians, such as Sting, Jeff Healey, Bobby Kimball(Toto), and the entire Rolling Stones Crew also found their way to the Bourbon Street. Go there for a relaxed, enjoyable night.... :) Entrance is 6 Euros

    Looking for a place to dance? But don't feel like a nightclub? Go to Bourbon Street. You will feel like dancing on the street in this smokey bluesclub. Every night live musicians or jamsessions.
    Great smokey ambience.
