The Last Waterhole

The Last Waterhole, a rebel themed hangout down in the Red Light District, is a good venue to hear music close up and personal and dance if the spirit moves you. We got to check this place out when Cosmic Charlie, a Grateful Dead cover band played, and there was enough gray haired tie-dyed ol' hippies there to start a retirement commune. The band gave me some serious but extremely enjoyable flashbacks to the 60s with tunes like Uncle John's Band. Everyone seemed to dig both the band and the somewhat funky but smokey atmosphere of the place.

There was no admission that evening, so for the price of a few beers I got to relive some golden moments. And it was a special pleasure to be able to smoke da kine in this venue. The stage is downstairs from a youth hostel, so they try to keep the music hip and the vibes easy going. The sound in the relatively small venue was excellent. every tuesday: blues jam every wednesday: soul time every thursday: pop/rock session every sunday: semi accoustic jam Usually no cover charge.

This place is a little hard to find. It's on a small alleyway between the Oudezijds Voorburgwal and the Warmeosstraat, close to Centraal Station

The Waterhole has moved now, wondered why I couldn't find it last Easter! It's now located Leidesplein (sp?) area. Excellent cool laid back bar, 10/10

Great bar, cold beer, good music, pool tables and you can smoke one at your table. Heaven, I'm in heaven. We went here for a while almost every night we were in town.
