    Kriterion - Bar | Café | Theater in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Opened by a good samaritan in 1945, the Kriterion movie theater was originally a haven where struggling students could work and earn money in the aftermath of World War II. From the beginning, Kriterion has been run by a creative panel of young and innovative city students, who continue to strive to keep the theater a liberal ... more

    Grey Area - Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Known for producing some of the best weed and hash in the city, Grey Area is one of the most popular coffeeshops in Amsterdam and has won countless High Times Cannabis Cup awards – although, ironically, most of the wins have been for marijuana produced in the United States. Nonetheless, this small coffeeshop and its high ... more

    The Dolphins - Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Thanks to its shameless ocean theme, The Dolphins is one of the most unique and recognizable coffeeshops in Amsterdam. The walls are amusingly painted with one continuous marine mural that features air-brushed dolphins, treasure chests, and scuba divers, as well as three-dimensional foam coral creations that bubble out ... more

    Boom Chicago - Comedy Club in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Boom Chicago is a comedy theater where fifty percent of the show is improvised, one hundred percent is hilarious, and patrons are guaranteed to laugh out loud for the entire two-hour performance. Giving away any part of the act would be a disservice, so spectators should just go with an open mind and prepare to be ... more

    Café de Duivel - Bar in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Although Café de Duivel is located in a square once known as Devil’s Corner – which was also the site of witch burnings – the owner of this classic hip-hop bar claims the bar’s name is simply a coincidence. Once inside, however, it’s clear that the décor carries on the devilish theme with its red and black walls, bar, lounge ... more

    Nes Café - Bar | Café in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Originally a combination coffeeshop and bar, Nes Café eventually dropped the cannabis side of its business to comply with changes to Dutch law, but is still a smoker-friendly bar for pool sharks, coffeeshop employees, and everyone in between who enjoys drinking cheap beer in a welcome watering hole. Other than the large ... 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.
