    Grey Area - Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Known for producing some of the best weed and hash in the city, Grey Area is one of the most popular coffeeshops in Amsterdam and has won countless High Times Cannabis Cup awards – although, ironically, most of the wins have been for marijuana produced in the United States. Nonetheless, this small coffeeshop and its high ... more

    Bluebird - Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review It’s easy to get lost in the details at Bluebird, a cool coffeeshop whose mesmerizing jungle theme is rife with lush murals of rain forests and a plethora of leafy green plants. The whole setting calls to mind a sort of tree house bungalow, with swirls of tropical reds, blues, and greens contributing to the soothing vibe ... more

    De Dampkring - Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Long before its fame for its part in the film Ocean’s 12 – a scene that is continuously looped on the bar’s flat-screen TVs – De Dampkring was well known for its trippy, hippie Indian vibe and fine list of weed and hash. Swirls of earthy tones and vibrant gold trim adorn the dark wood bar, glossy inlaid tables, and sunset ... more

    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. Raw and gritty, the modest space features peeling punk posters, old leather boots dangling from the ... more

    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 De II Prinsen is a lively bar and attracts a young college crowd that comes every night to let loose, meet new people, and have a good time. Even though there isn ... more

    Party Earth Review Named after the black pigs that are indigenous to the Iberian Peninsula, Pata Negra is a restaurant and bar popular for its genuine Spanish design, sweetly refreshing cocktails, and a menu of over forty authentic Spanish tapas.

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.
