Dear Cavers!

As you all know the new covid rules start today. We will open up again monday the 27th of september. This means from then on you need to show us your qr scan code. We will check this code so make sure you have it ready before coming in. Dont pass by if you dont have it, or start arguments at the door, via phone or app with the staff. This rule allowes us to have more people in the bar without the 1.5 meter rule.
We also close the Sundays till further notice.

Keep Rock and Metal alive!
Hugs, love, blood, sweat and tears from the cave staff.

Amsterdam’s Home of Rock and Metal

Rock Club the Cave is the one and only genuine rock and metal bar in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We have been hardening and re-inventing the steel in the very heart of Amsterdam for more than two decades and we intend to refuse and resist, weather and persevere, for many more years to come! Because, as they say, you can’t stop Rock and Roll!

We founded the Cave back in 1995 for the sole purpose of creating a rock and metal Heaven in a Rock and Roll Hell hole! In fact, we were thrilled to provide music fans, emerging bands, and talented DJs with a place where they could belong and where they could have some great time! Till this very day, we have not changed our unholy mission and we have been consistently rocking and rolling your world seven days a week and six ways to Sunday!

We are located Prinsengracht 472, 1017 KG, Amsterdam and we are here to entertain you and give you nights to remember! And we do this by covering the whole rock and metal spectrum: from blues and classic rock, to heavy metal, prog metal, thrash metal, all types of extreme metal and anything else rock or metal related that you may fancy to listen to! In addition, our staff and DJs are more than happy to play your requests! We also have raw and powerful live acts every Friday and Saturday (and sometimes during the week to accommodate special guests and touring bands) to give you a little taste of what real rock and metal music is and should be all about!

We host special theme-nights and we have guest DJs that are lean, mean rock and metal playing machines! Moreover, we organise and host afterparties after every major rock, metal or punk related concert at the Melkweg and Paradiso. So, if you are wondering where to go chill, grab a drink, and talk to some really nice people about the shows you just experienced, then come down to the Cave and let the good times roll!

2 Years ago we had an awesome show at Rock Club the Cave! Hopefully soon again! We miss you 🥺😢 📷 by John van der Zee
FUN, a few years back already @ Rock Club the Cave.
En Rock Club the Cave is weer aan het streamen als er nog mensen zijn die behoefte hebben aan beetje lekkere muziek :) http://www.twitch.tv/thecave_amsterdam?sr=a
Sometimes we make an exception in the usual album art posting spree. This is another one. We might have the chance to lose the most known Dutch metal bar. @thecaveamsterdam .A lot of (International) metal bands have played, or have been, to this legendary place. Having a drink. Watching new/old/known/unknown musical metal talent. For over 25 years, The Cave has been the metal haven for many many metalheads.

Rockclub The Cave Amsterdam is reddingsactie begonnen Rock Club the Cave in Amsterdam wordt bedreigd met sluiting vanwege de aanhoudende maatregelen omtrent het Coronavirus. Daarom heeft een aantal gasten de handen ineen geslagen om de crowdfunding actie ‘Save The Cave Amsterdam’ op te zetten. De actie is inmiddels breeduit gedeeld, waaronder door leden van Sick Of It All. https://arrowlordsofmetal.nl/rockclub-the-cave-amsterdam-is-reddingsactie-begonnen/
Initiatief om Rock Club the Cave in Amsterdam te redden Net als veel andere zalen heeft Rock Club The Cave het zwaar. In het jaar waarin het vijfentwintigjarig jubileum van de Amsterdamse bar gevierd zou moeten worden, is men op zoek naar oplossingen om een plek te blijven bieden aan rock- en metalliefhebbers in onze hoofdstad. Iron Fist-zanger Marcel van Twuijver organiseert daarom Save The Cave. Dat houdt drie concertavonden van een uur voor dertig man. Een kaartje kost vijf euro. De eerste ronde heeft dit weekend plaatsgevonden. .....
"What does our music mean to us" - Chapter one. Right....*coughs*. *Breaks into song*: "hello, my fellow lockdowned old friends, how we long to see you all again, but something softly cree-eeping, stole the chance we all could be meeee-ting". ... something something etc. We had a splendid idea, "pick a photo, write what music means to you, post it online". Now that I'm typing it's not so splendid, but bear with me. We - as musicians - think this whole thing sucks. Yes, we know the importance. Yes we're bored. Yes we'd rather die touring than in a supermarket isle. But we can't tour. So instead of having a tirade on that issue... we decided that we'd give you a little insight into our mindset. What drives us to do our music to way we do? What does it mean to us? So here's us: Me, Henk Bakker, Martijn Leijgraaf and Jim My. We're The Hangman's Lament. Apparently I'm the lucky one to kick this series off, and no, this is not a fu***ng challenge where artists go balls out. Please no. So lets cut to the chase, he says, well beyond your span of interest. Music to me, making music, is a way of storytelling. They say that if a singer gets older, there's more meaning to the lyrics. For me this is right on the button. I write lyrics, but when I see that people have an affinity with the words I wrote down, and that they in some way reverberate with them, in what way whatsoever, that gives me joy. It's the faces of people seeing that we have fun on stage, and that we try to convey just that. Have a good time. We try as musicians, and yeah, we f**k up. But what music does for me, what shows do for me, is the complete submersion in telling the story you want people to hear - no matter how harsh, angry, beautiful or soft, or full blown complete batsh*t madness. But what it does: it unites us, it gives me goosebumps, it makes me get a speeding ticket, it consoles me lying on a kitchenfloor, it envigorates me. Musicians get a poor rep. I get that. Heck I've never made a penny. But seriously, I haven't regretted any choice I made. I'd trade every penny I could've made for all the stories that I can tell. So yeah Henk Bakker, this was your initiative. Here's the photo I chose: Me being crowdsurfed in Amsterdam's favorite dive bar, Rock Club the Cave. Why? Because the absolute mayhem, and joy that night was unforgettable. And because the Cave, they give musicians a chance. And as you can see in the picture, both the muscians, and the guests enjoy this kind of mayhem.
