    Weber / Kamer 401 / Lux - Bar in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Standing side-by-side on the periphery of Leidseplein, Weber, Kamer 401, and Lux are a trio of bars that may be similar in shape, style, and clientele, but each has a slight twist in character that sets it apart from the others. The identical floor plans feature a long, narrow three-room design with the main bar on the ... more

    Kingfisher - Bar | Café | Diner in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review One of the most popular, if not the most well-known, watering holes in the neighborhood, Kingfisher is an updated version of a 50s American diner that overflows with De Pijp residents, local artists, young professionals, and students on most sunny afternoons and on into the night.

    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

    Schuim - Bar | Café in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review A local favorite for more than a decade, Schuim is a spacious, retro-styled café whose relaxed afternoon vibe transforms into a lively bar scene in the evening.

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.
