Dallas Observer's Description

The Amsterdam Bar is by far one of the coolest bars in town. It's set up like a European-style bar, with a heavy German and Belgian beer menu. There is vintage fat-tire bicycle that hangs above the entrance. The huge backyard is perfect to sit out and catch the occasional band on warm summer nights.

    Jazz can be fine in a jacket and tie, but it feels at home in the Amsterdam's relaxed, eclectic environment. The quartet - Shelley Carrol on tenor sax, flute, and voice, Dave Zoller on keys, Jonathan Fisher on bass and Andrew Griffith on drums - is more than enough to keep things interesting. Their repertoire is so broad and deep that every Monday has a unique flavor.

    What is the ambiance or crowd like? What is the best night to go? Is there a cover charge or door list to get in?

    place is always chill. they have board games you can play while you drink. They have the best jazz i have heard in dallas on Monday nights late. And it changes week to week. i have never been let down by Amsterdam bar. Great huge patio as well.
