Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is a small intimate jazz bar, with a nice atmosphere. Centrally located. It was a good band on, when we were there. We recommend a stop, when you are in central Amsterdam.

    Perfect club, walked in by chance, filled up well after midnight. Civilised crowd, excellent musicians. Not expensive, and for 5 euro entrance fee you definitely get more than you would have expected..

    Excellent venue but a bit tricky to reach by foot. Quit a walk from central town.
    That said, great sound, seating. Good bar.

    We had lunch here last Sunday. Overlooking the Amsterdam IJ. The menu offers no special things (sandwiches, salads, pasta, etc...), but we really had a good time. Staff is very friendly. Good value of money when visiting KNSM district. And, do enjoy the old building.

    I actually went to Bethany's in May of 2015, but it was one of the most memorable and vivid experiences of my time in Amsterdam.
    At the time, Bethany's held free jazz shows every Wednesday night, with only the drink money to keep the shows going -- a real community effort. The musicians were veteran players, you could tell; they easily swapped arrangements, played solos, and accompanied people they had only just met with skill and soul. It was a very unique format.
    I was staying at Shelter hostel across the alley, and one guy from out of town who was also staying there got invited up to play guitar for a couple songs, just impromptu.
    I don't know if they're still doing it or if they've perhaps moved the initiative somewhere else, but attending this special evening made me feel like I lived there.

    The old fart running the queue was really mean. We probably sounded horrible but he was still pretty rude. Bouncer was not very friendly too.
