Always pay a visit to the last water hole when I’m in Amsterdam. Cool bar to Have a few games of pool. The beer price is great too. €3.50 a pint. And a lovely little smoke room too.

The Waterhole is a great rock bar. The environment is really nice and the staff is friendly and assertive. I enjoy going during the older rock band presentations.

Music is number one here. Live bands everyday (several many of those times). A spot where locals and tourists meet. I go by once a day even if it’s just to say hello. Right in thw middle of a super-touristy zone lies this gem.

While there's nothing about The Waterhole that marks it as quintessentially Amsterdam in any way—so if that's what you're after, go elsewhere—it's a fun place with great service and good pub food. On the night we went there was an amazing band (an Australian outfit...More

It was really fun for me. I see that everyone is having a blast at the concert. I have no problems with the bartenders or the bouncer. The only thing I would suggest is to give customers the option to pin instead of cash.
