When talking about clubs in Amsterdam, different things come to mind for different people – and because it’s a major European city, there is invariably something for everyone.
Although it’s not known as the most cosmopolitan city in Europe, there are still plenty of Amsterdam clubs that cater to an exclusive, high-end loving crowd. Mostly found in areas like Leidseplein, the see-and-be-seen Amsterdam set makes their way to posh, booming nightclubs and red roped VIP spots where bottle service is the norm.
Leidseplein caters to more than just celebrity filled, high-end haunts, as denizens fill the streets looking to hit up dance clubs, jazz clubs, blues clubs, and hot DJ spots. Other hotspots catering to students, young professionals, and just the young at heart can be found in Rembrandtplein – known as Amsterdam’s second center of nightlife and clubbing.
And of course for those looking for a different kind of club experience, they can find it in the city’s comedy clubs or head over to the Red Light District where some of the craziest, wildest, and sexiest shows on the planet are found in the erotic clubs and strip clubs.
