Browse Amsterdam Bars and Clubs by Category

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.
