Former blues club Bourbon Street answered the demand for a cozy, yet classy venue back in 1990. It wouldn’t take long before locals, tourists, students and musicians found their way to the Leidsekruisstraat. A few years ago, Bourbon Street decided to branch out into other styles of music, making it the place to be for live music of nearly any genre.

Our program consists of rock, soul, funk, reggae, folk, blues and anything in between. Every night of the week, you can find touring international artists, high-level cover bands or upcoming local acts on our intimate stage. On Mondays, we host our renowned open jam session, where local and international musicians join our houseband Mosquito, to create fresh, new sounds. There’s no entrance-fee on ‘Magic Monday’. On Sundays, you can also see a free show. Just hang back, relax and enjoy the sweet soul, funk and quality pop music. On Tuesdays, the various shows at Bourbon Street are also free to visit. We offer a very diverse program of concerts. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, the cover is € 3,00 and on Fridays and Saturdays, you get an entire night of live music (from 11pm until 4am) for just € 5,00.


Through the years, Bourbon Street has had the privilege to welcome some of the biggest names in music. From local heroes like Herman Brood and Hans Dulfer, to worldwide superstars such as Sting, ZZ Top, Joss Stone, Tower Of Power, Toto and B.B. King. Amsterdam is a very musical town, that goes beyond saying. And the countless talented musicians that populate our nation’s capital all flock to Bourbon Street, making it a unique musical melting pot.

High quality bands, friendly bar-staff and that unequivocally casual atmosphere you can only find in Amsterdam. No wonder the crowds at Bourbon Street are always made up of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds. Good music is universal. Come on down and experience it for yourself!


Bourbon Street is opened from Sunday through Thursday from 10pm until 4am. On Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm until 5am.

Wanna book one of the bands that play at Bourbon Street? We can help you with that! Many of the musicians and groups on our stage also work as session players, and play at corporate and private events. What's more, for a large part, these musicians are not restricted by record company management or contract.

Maybe there was no opportunity during the show to discuss a booking with the musician(s), or you're simply looking for an artist or band with a specific skill set or genre.

So if you're interested in a band or a musician, send us an e-mail and we will help you to get in contact with the artists!
