    De Kroon - Bar | Club | Restaurant in Amsterdam.

    Party Earth Review A blue light guides patrons up the lavish staircase to De Kroon (The Crown), a restaurant and bar that’s right out of an episode of Miami Vice. The upscale interior includes ivory parlor chairs and a row of tiny palm trees lit by shades of pastel neon, as well as unusual touches like shadowbox displays of butterfly varieties ... 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. Besides some little pops of blue trim to ... 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

    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

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.
