This is about the history of the Phonobar. I hope that through the contribution of others it will turn into a real Blog.
The bar was located in Amsterdam and well-known around the world. It became famous because a special kind of music was played there. Yes indeed Jazz!! But, not only this made the bar famous, also the variety of people visiting the bar made it as it was and last but not least the owners of the bar.
Read from the bottom up. I hope you will enjoy it.

This first image was drawn by J. Huidekoper and is possibly drawn near the time the building was finished in 1666. It was named "Het geloof" freely translated in "The faith". For the Phonobar it could have been a nice philosophical surname.
