Saw a performance here the other week. It's a really nice venue. The band was amazing. It was good sound quality and not super busy. Neither of the performances happening that night were sold out so they said we could attend both. So very good value for our money.

Great concert venue with international music acts playing regularly. Also well worth checking out the (free) bar next door which often hosts album debuts and has a great vibe

Had a three day visit in Haarlem. Searched for some nice restaurants and a place for entertainment. Booked tickets for Niels Geusenbroek in the Patronaat, the day before our arrival. Awesome athmosphere in the little hall. Very intimate. Great performance of this singer/songwriter in his hometown. Very cosy and friendly athmosphere in the Patronaat. Check the programm when you're in... More

Spent a nice night with my friends here, good music and beautiful place. Maybe you should add some chairs, or maybe not :)

Went there to see a metal concert. Music could be clearly heard with quite a good sound (I was in first row). Plenty of space, toilets are to be paid for even if you have a ticket. Nice little bar.

With the eclectic offer this Haarlem music temple, with a branch office at the Bloemendaal beach has a lot to offer. Whether it is upcoming bands or golden oldies, new styles or small gigs - Patronaat has it all!

This is a really good concert hall, with several areas. basically there is something going on everyday. Sound quality of the place is very good. There are a lot of stairs, which is not so convenient. But the biggest drawback is the low beer-quality, in combination with plastic cups, this combination is quite bad. No it's disgusting!

If you like Seasick Steve, Peter Pan Speedrock or an evening with Snoop Dog, this is a good place to be. Not too big, not too small and (conveniently for me) located in Haarlem centre, Patronaat's agenda is to be checked regularly! Very varied in music. Like the place a lot

I was lucky enough to see Motorpsycho perform a fantastic show on a great venue! Haarlem is indeed a very nice place indeed for concerts, with good sound and terraces which enables the participant to get a good view of the stage from almost anywhere on the premises. Also, there was good access to the bars, not much lines and... More
