Bitterzoet is a rather small venue, the right size for upcoming indie bands and lesser known artists. We went to see a great gig of Ron Gallo, organised by Paradiso. The venue is excellent, quite similar to larger venues such as Melkweg and Paradiso, with...More

Small intimate concert room with balcony and various levels to view or stand slightly higher. Nice atmosphere and good sound quality. Friendly staff. Range and quality of beer is good, house wine could be better.

We were here for a performance of Lou Rhode. The atmosphere is friendly and everyone has a chance to see the stage (also from a balcony). There are small lockers for your personal belongings.

My friend and I like to go to concerts and we always check what's at Bitterzoet. Sometimes a concert or just go for later night drinks is also possible.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

I have always entered in casual clothing. Wearing jeans, trainers t-shirt and often a hat. No steel cap boots are allowed. There is a relaxed policy. You will stand out wearing a suit or shirt and tie.
