In the suddenly hip Amsterdam Oost neighborhood, Bar Basquiat acts as neo-Bohemian anchor on Javastraat. The bar is an homage to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the Brooklyn born artist who’s been dead for 20 years now.

Housed in a former supermarket, Bar Basquiat would be right at home in Austin or Portland. Sonic Youth is on the hi fi and the staff are appropriately tattooed and disheveled.
