I did not randomly came here. I looked for it on Trip advisor, as weI wanted some live music for the night. This seemed ok. Instead, we took a long walk in a very cold Amsterdam, and it was dificult to find the place as we did not have internet on ouf phone. We arrived there and some young band... More

This was the first bar that I walked into in Amsterdam, the welcome was fantastic!!! Peter the barman made me feel at home. I came back every night of my stay and was greeting in exactly the same welcoming manner. The owner and punters were also very friendly, they play live music, have pool tables and comfy seating areas. This... More

We went twice while we were in Amsterdam as it's a great bar with friendly staff. The live music was fantastic and the place was very busy, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you're a fan of quality live music at a great price then this has to be included on your list of things to do in Amsterdam. Located just off one of the Leidseplein, this fantastic bar/venue holds a different live act every night, including a mixture of Dutch and International bands. The music goes on until 3/4am, and entry... More

One of the best locations in The Netherlands. We played there with our Funkband The Automatic Heroes. And that was the bomb. A crazy audience, a super nice stuff (Bar & Sound Engineering) and a super organisation. The location is equipped with a couple of posters, Instruments and Live music preanouncements. Phantastic 6 points from our band!!!

Our band 'Chasing Deer' were welcomed from the UK to play at the Waterhole on our Tour of the Netherlands. Friendly staff, great music, generous and quality food portions. Overall a good atmosphere for a night out. We'll definitely be back!
