Bimhuis is located in the heart of the city and is a great place for any music-lover to spend an evening. This place has been the center of Dutch jazz culture for more than 25 years. Music in all its forms can be heard here, like contemporary jazz, blues and world music. Although most of the music featured is contemporary, famous old-school European and American jazz musicians like Charles Mingus and Max Roach have played here in the past. Besides hosting bands, Bimhuis also organizes many workshops and musical projects.
