The Bimhuis is a concert hall for jazz and improvised music in Amsterdam.

With an average of 150 performances a year the Bimhuis is the main stage for these musical genres in the Netherlands.

The Bimhuis was founded in 1973. Until the summer of 2004 it was located at Oude Schans 73-77 in the centre of the city. Since January 2005 it is housed in a new building at the Piet Heinkade 3, next to the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, on the southern bank of the IJ river.
