  • Irish Pub / Live Music Venue

    Mulligan's Irish Music Bar - Irish Pub | Live Music Venue in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Perfectly situated on the river Amstel just around the corner from Rembrandtplein, Mulligan's is a typical Irish pub with plenty of Guinness on tap, large TVs to keep the sports fans happy, and pictures of the green countryside of Ireland to keep the expats from feeling homesick.

    Wynand Fockink - Drinking Activity | Historic Bar | Tour in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review An old-fashioned Dutch liqueur distillery and tasting house in business since 1679, Wynand Fockink is an entertaining place where patrons can still take part in a unique Dutch drinking tradition.

    Café De II Prinsen - Brown Bar in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Though the historical portraits and antique chandeliers may create the illusion of an old-fashioned Dutch pub, patrons shouldn't be fooled by appearances.

    Café The Minds - Bar | Café in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Take the cover of a punk rock album, throw in some skateboard decks and a few beer-soaked tables, then add a talkative crowd sporting mohawks and worn out Chuck Taylors, and the end result is none other than Café The Minds.

Brown bars – named for their requisite 16th- and 17th-century-era smoky wooden interiors – are the heart of the city’s nightlife drinking culture, but there are loads of modern and trendy bars and clubs in Amsterdam whose chic décor and more sophisticated vibe cater to a cosmopolitan crowd as well.

As casual drinkers enjoy the local Heineken, Amstel, and Grolsch beers at neighborhood pubs, a more “see and be seen” set heads to swankier bars and clubs for the latest cocktails. The city also offers a diverse scene that includes artsy, underground hangouts as well as high-end dance clubs and lounges.

Regardless of the setting, these venues provide the late-night dancing and debauchery that seems to be expected in Amsterdam. And while most of these nightclubs have door policies and dress codes, they are generally more relaxed than similar clubs in other major cities.
