    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

    Mellow Yellow - Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review The first licensed coffeeshop in Amsterdam, Mellow Yellow opened its doors in 1967 and remains a must-see for connoisseurs of cultural cannabis. The exterior, with its bright yellow façade and retro black stripe design, still screams 1960s, but the interior is nothing but modern. Sleek tables, cushioned stools, and wraparound ... 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

    Barney's Coffeeshop - Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review For over twenty years, the small but hip Barney’s Coffeeshop has offered a welcoming bohemian feel and remains a genuine staple of Amsterdam’s smoking culture. The vintage wood trim and smiling sun logo invite patrons in, where they find a rustic tavern with a rather exotic décor featuring golden yellow walls with brick ... more

Three distinct areas make up the venue, the first being La Salle Neige, a combination dining room, stage, and art gallery with broad balconies and ... more

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.
