Bimhuis is one of the best European jazz theaters, and there are lots of things to see. To be more precise, it is a concert hall for jazz and improvised music. It is located in a strange building that looks like a giant black cube. The architectors tried to create the atmosphere of the old jazz club. The building turned out to be rather original, comfortable and equipped with all the technical innovations for sound recording. Bimhuis was founded in 1973 and until the summer of 2004 it was located in the Oude Schans in the city center. the modern Bimhuis was opened in January 2005 and it represents a ultramodern venue with the most advanced technical and acoustic solutions that create the perfect sound. Concert Hall features an amphitheater with a capacity of more than 200 people. In addition to the concert hall for jazz music in the Bimhuis complex there is a nice restaurant, a night bar and a large terrace by the water. The stage is located in front of a large glass wall through which visitors can see breathtaking views of the historic center of Amsterdam.
