Bird is the new place to be in Rotterdam. Bird is located next to Mini-Mall and also suited at the Hofbogen. You can go here on a Friday or Saturday night and enjoy the party’s. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday you can enjoy live jam sessions and many live performances of jazz musicians.

Listening to live performances



The former station underneath the Hofbogen lately saw resurgence, thanks to the owner of Bird. Many different people of all ages come to this place to enjoy live performances of Dutchand international jazz musicians. Is it all about jazz? No it isn’t. You can also expect hip-hop, soul, funk and new electronic performances. The Dutch word ‘gezelligheid’ describes a social scene that is cosy and convivial with a layering of camaraderie and fellowship. I think ‘gezelligheid’ describes the vibe at Bird. I like the relaxing vibe of the place. You can sit down at a wooden table, have a drink and listen to the music. People who like to dance will find enough space on the concrete dance floor.

Restaurant Bird and Birdfest


There is also a restaurant at Bird. So you can have dinner first before you start dancing on the tunes of the DJ or band. Also nice, twice a year they organise Birdfest. It’s a two days festival with many different performances. The next one will be in March. On the website of Bird you will find all the informations about the time schedule of the performances for the next couple of weeks.



Opening hours : thuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 20.30 till late.
Friday till Saterday from 23.00 til 05.00.
