East / East Docks, Amsterdam.
Collapse map / See photo gallery

Although they’re located right next door to each other, the East and East Docks neighborhoods each have their own look and feel that add to the diversity of eastern Amsterdam.

The latest addition to the city, East Docks is an architectural wonder built on “islands” formed by docks and old harbor materials. A mix of young business professionals and graduate students has helped this area flourish into a budding scene of stylish terrace bars and small music venues floating in the water where people gather to socialize in a laid-back, scenic setting.

The East neighborhood is also residential, but is home to an array of clubs that has made the nightlife more destination driven, attracting a party crowd looking to spend the evening in one specific hotspot. The growing popularity of some of the larger clubs has resulted in a regular weekend pilgrimage of urban trendsetters eager to dance the night away.
