Music Building on the IJ is the main concert hall for contemporary classical music on the IJ in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The building opened in 2005 and is located above the IJtunnel, a ten-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal station.
This interesting contemporary building was designed by Danish architects 3XN. The Bimhuis is part of and partly integrated in the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ.

Before the Muziekgebouw there was Muziekcentrum de IJsbreker located at the Weesperzijde. This facility got shut down and replaced by the Muziekgebouw. Just like the IJsbreker the venue primarily focuses on contemporary classical music, while the Bimhuis is mainly focused on contemporary jazz music.
Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ has one large concert space, but also a smaller one that is also used for conferences, talk, exhibitions. Concerts also take place at various other locations in the building such as the atrium and on the three large balconies above the restaurant. Expositions of installations and sound art are programmed at this location too.

The Pearl Café on Westerstraat
Café de Parel was originally a typical Amsterdam ‘brown bar’ with an old-fashioned dark interior and low lighting. The traditional stained-glass windows and monumental tile tableaus create the perfect setting for the new Parel.
