Jazz venues in Amsterdam (and Karaoke!) - Cafe Casablanca
Jazz venues in Amsterdam - Cafe Casablanca
One of the best known Jazz venues in Amsterdam, the Cafe Casablanca dates back to 1945 and has featured many talented and famous performers over the decades. More of a small pub than a cafe, what the place lacks in size it more than makes up for in atmosphere. The Cafe Casablanca is located on the northern edge of the red light district on the Zeedijk at 1012 AZ Amsterdam and can be very popular at times so be prepared to take your chances of getting/squeezing in - Anything is possible here and if a few of the Jazz playing afficianados of the city turn up to jam along, then you might just feel that the audience is in the minority- no matter how crowded the bar gets!
Karaoke in Amsterdam - Cafe Casablanca
In Amsterdam musical snobbery does not appear to be an issue and at the weekends the bar reverts to being one of the most popular venues for Karaoke in Amsterdam. The combination of song, dance and DJ generated music works well together and typically helps forge an excellent party atmosphere for all visitors looking to have a good time. Admission to the Cafe Casablanca is generally free and more information can be found regarding upcoming acts etc on the Cafe Casablanca website.
Adjacent to the Cafe Casablanca is the Casablanca Varietie club which features a theatre, bar and restaurant. There you will be entertained by old/new style variety fayre, typically featuring circus performers and local novelty acts etc..... All in all (between the jazz, karaoke and circus acts etc) an interesting, quirky and entertaining corner of the city to spend the evening in.
