Bourbon Street, Amsterdam
Bourbon Street is a great place for a night with Rhythm and Blues live music. Famous and unknown artists play here and the sound is always great. Especially for the lovers of (real) music, I'ld recommend to go here and enjoy a night in Amsterdam.
Dress Code: Casual or ... dress up like Jake or Elwood Blues (-:
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
Dress Code: Casual
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.
Bourbon Street is a GREAT place for a night with Rhythm and Blues live music. Famous and unknown artists play here and the sound is always great.
Because of the warm and intimate atmosphere Bourbon Street attracts a mixture of customers of all ages and different backgrounds!!!
Here you can listen to REAL music and enjoy your nite in Amsterdam!
Thanks Ray for bringing me there: that was FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)))
Dress Code: your jeans will be perfect! :-)
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.

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.
