Leidseplein, Amsterdam –
Posh and elegant, Jimmy Woo is one of the hottest clubs in Amsterdam and attracts a chic, sophisticated clientele that fits right in with the lush décor.
The tongue-in-cheek premise is that the club is actually Jimmy Woo’s home, and a glass door at the entrance affords an intimate view of the fictional Mr. Woo’s bedroom.
Upstairs, an exotic Asian theme is combined with trendy touches of black couches, cozy booths, and an exquisite bar glowing with fluorescent purple lights.
Although the side booths are usually occupied by well-dressed groups working on ice buckets filled with bottles of champagne and vodka, the room’s centerpiece is an exclusive seating area situated on a brightly-lit platform and secluded by thin, intricate dividers and sheer curtains.
The relaxed vibe continues until 1am, when the sociable crowd begins to wander downstairs. There, a second bar lies adjacent to a gigantic dance floor where patrons dance under the incredible effects of the twelve thousand white light bulbs in the ceiling.
The buzzing energy, lively clientele, and impeccable, luxurious environment make Jimmy Woo one of the most exciting places in town to see and be seen.
Stylish local crowd, mid-20s to 30s, with a smattering of visitors and prominent figures.
DJs spin a mix of hits including house, urban music, and techno on one of the best sound systems in Europe.
No food, but an extensive cocktail menu. The doormen can be selective.
Cover charge €10–€12. Beer €3, wine €4, cocktails €9, mixed drinks €7.60, bottle service €65+.
Smart casual or dressy clubwear.
Fridays and Saturdays around 1am.
Across the alley is Jimmy Woo’s separate cocktail bar, Suzy Wong. Smaller but with the same upscale Asian design, Suzy Wong hosts DJs nightly and offers a list of exotic cocktails.
