    Mulligan's Irish Music Bar - Irish Pub | Live Music Venue in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Perfectly situated on the river Amstel just around the corner from Rembrandtplein, Mulligan's is a typical Irish pub with plenty of Guinness on tap, large TVs to keep the sports fans happy, and pictures of the green countryside of Ireland to keep the expats from feeling homesick. A large smoking room in back gives tobacco ... more

    Melkweg - Concert Venue | Club | Art Gallery | Theater in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review Set in an old milk factory, Melkweg (Milky Way) is an entertainment/arts complex with a bar, club, movie theater, and art gallery. Though the venue features a variety of live concerts during the week, the post-show club gigs that swing into gear afterwards are just as popular with the local music lovers who show up to dance ... 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

    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

    Wynand Fockink - Drinking Activity | Historic Bar | Tour in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review An old-fashioned Dutch liqueur distillery and tasting house in business since 1679, Wynand Fockink is an entertaining place where patrons can still take part in a unique Dutch drinking tradition. Snazzy shot glasses of sweet, bitter, strong, and/or fruity liqueurs are filled to the rim and lined up on the bar – and the ... 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.
