The Scene

De Club Up is a hotspot for a diverse clientele that includes everyone from young and cultured adults from the city's creative industries of fashion, marketing, music, and design, to artsy hipsters and mild hip-hop mavens.

De Club Up is a hotspot for a diverse clientele that includes everyone from young and cultured adults from the city’s creative industries of fashion, marketing, music, and design, to artsy hipsters and mild hip-hop mavens.

The brick and concrete club’s generous size houses a vast dance floor that accommodates 300 guests and features silent projected scenes of rock and roll flicks or Stanley Kubrick films that throw a flickering light on the crowd beneath the disco balls. Animated bartenders groove to the trendy DJ’s funky beats as they mix cocktail after cocktail.

Just above the dance floor is a partially hidden mezzanine that is home to a long lounge – the ideal spot to sink into plush chairs for a bit of respite.

One of the many upsides to De Club Up is the particularly outgoing and colorful urban mix of partygoers who rarely “stick to their own” – tight-jean hipsters mingle with grungy skaters who mingle with a blend of hip-hoppers and everyone else in between.

The bottom line at this club is that patrons are eager to create an open-minded and expressive atmosphere with an interactive and nonjudgmental scene – and in this they have succeeded.

De Club Up is without a doubt the place to be for those who enjoy diving into the latest style or being inspired to create a new trend, whether it’s through the club’s hip music or the crowd’s fashionable threads.

Tip from Emma:

If you don’t have the hookup to get into De Kring on your own, come to De Club Up on Saturdays when the clubs combine forces and non-members are welcomed into to this exclusive spot.

  • Crowd

    Urban mix of trendy professionals, skaters, hip-hop lovers, and up-and-comers in the creative/fashion scene, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    A mix of new disco, hip-hop, indie pop, and some house.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    The entrance can be confusing, but patrons need only walk in the door and up the stairs where they’ll find the coat check and cashier.

  • Prices

    Cover charge €5–€10. Beer €2.50, wine €3.50, mixed drinks €7.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual to smart casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursdays through Saturdays. The most popular events are the Velvet Morning Disco Circle on the first Friday of every month and the Cirque Excentrique on the first Saturday.

  • Close By

    Next door is De Kring, a posh and cutting-edge members-only artists’ lounge. Making friends with one of the 2,000 or so members while at De Club Up is one way to help gain entrée into De Kring.

De Club Up User Reviews

Average rating:
One of the top clubs in Leidseplein
Amster M. Dec 4, 2012
The first great thing about Club Up is that it's smack dab in Leidseplein but unseen by the tourist's eye -- so it's kind of a local's club I'd say. It's really nothing special, just the fact that it's secretive is good enough. The dance floor is really where you want to be most of the time, as I've say the upstairs lounging area is a bit sparse for chairs, and the smoking room is small and a little too dark and cramped (uninviting?). But the dance floor is great, and the DJs play some fun tunes, and on the sides you can stand against the wall and watch the heads bop up and down. Be ready to wait at the bar for a while when you want a refill.
