Let’s sit crooked and talk straight Amsterdam Nightlife Guide; Ok, Amsterdam is famous for Van Gogh’s works, beautiful canals, cheese and tulips, but nobody goes there to smell flowers now. Of course, the vases in the house are filled with tulips and the tables with cheese on the way back, but let’s see what happened in Amsterdam. I gave up, don’t ask, what happens in Amsterdam stays in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam is the city of distractions, wearing shoes with dancing and legal sins. If Hangover had been filmed in Europe, it would probably have taken place in Amsterdam. Amsterdam is to Europe what Las Vegas is to America. Based on the authority vested in us by living in the Netherlands, we present to you our Amsterdam nightlife guide that makes the wolves shed.

One of the Biggest Capitals of Electronic Music in the World Amsterdam

Instead of dancing in clubs, the types who keep their drink in their hands but keep the tempo with their feet are killing you too, and if you miss the environments where everyone dances freely, without macho, red and white, in Amsterdam! you will say. In fact, they usually put their nightclubs outside the city so that people can shed their wolves easily. The Dutch really know how to party, and they show it to the world with maybe 30 electronic music festivals throughout the year.

World Famous Dutch DJs

It is no coincidence that many of the world’s most famous DJs are Dutch: Tiesto, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Armin Van Buuren, Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell and at least 5 more world-famous DJs are from here. Parties and DJ performances that last until the morning are all over the city. Amsterdam usually has nightclubs in a more mainstream style than in Berlin. In other words, you can put all the stylish clothes you left behind while going to Berlin, but generally people prefer sports-elegant clothes. No matter how fashionable it is from ripped jeans, it does not break in Amsterdam bars, keep in mind.

Legal Elements 

We must admit that; Although it is not directly related to nightlife, there are also the Red Light District, where prostitution is legal, and coffee shops , where cannabis is legal, among those that make Amsterdam world famous . Of course, we should not forget the places that sell magic mushrooms. I guess we don’t need to say that there is an 18-year-old limit, right?

City Famous for its Beer 

It is one of the world’s beer centers such as the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, which is also known for being the hometown of the Heineken brand. It is an ideal city to taste a variety of beers. There are many other types of beer brands such as Amstel, Grolsch, Dommelsch, Brouwerij ‘t IJ  and La Trappe made by the monks . It would not be a lie to say that they are all at the same price as water. 😀 By the way, we said beer, but Amsterdam’s cocktail bars are also very famous!

City Festivals

Amsterdam Pride, where the canals turn into rainbow colors, and King’s Day (Koningsdag) on April 27, in honor of King Willem-Alexander’s birthday, are among the  most colorful city festivals. Its former name was Queen’s Day. On King’s Day, which is also a national holiday, the entire city of Holland turns orange and parties are partying all over the city until the evening of the next day.

Paradiso ☆

This is a former church building now one of the most popular alternative music scene and nightclubs. In fact, it is one of the 2 stars of Amsterdam nightlife.  In fact, it is a place that opened its doors not for such a purpose in the first place, but as a place where artists can collectively do creative work under the name of “Cosmic Relaxation Center Paradiso” in 1968. But over time, it has turned into a concert venue where local and international bands take the stage. Since the venue is an old church with 1500 seats, you can guess that its acoustics are excellent.

Melkweg ☆

Melkweg, the Milky Way, is the other star of Amsterdam nightlife. It was conceived as both a music/entertainment venue and a cultural centre. Our İKSV style is managed by a non-profit organization. A place converted from an old dairy factory. Its four halls function as a stage with different styles of music concerts, a cinema, an exhibition space and a restaurant.

If you’re the type who doesn’t like to dance and hang out at the bar corner with a drink, we say don’t even go near Pacific Parc. Because this is Amsterdam’s most rock & roll place. In the place where there is a place to spend time and eat during the day, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, the tables are set aside, rock ‘n’ roll starts with DJ or live music.

Entrance fee

It varies between 5 and 20 Euros. They may ask for more for live DJ performances, if you can find tickets at the door because these types of tickets sell out in advance. Especially if you want to watch a DJ in Melkweg and Paradiso, you need to buy your tickets early. Some clubs may also ask for a membership fee of 4 Euros. Membership is for one month, so you only pay for the event ticket when you go again in the same.

What where?

The most central places of nightlife in Amsterdam in the Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein neighborhoods. It consists mostly of places where students hang out. Especially in Leidseplein there are Irish pubs and music venues.


We would love for you to catch the atmosphere and the party at King’s Day 👉 April 27th.

Since winter and autumn are very cold in Amsterdam, the best time is between April and October.


In the city: Since the city is small, cycling is the most practical option, but it is not very convenient for nightlife. Don’t drink & drive, albeit a bike. 🙂 There is a developed tram network in Amsterdam, but it does not run after midnight. There are also night buses. Getting an Amsterdam Card is the smartest way to use public transport.
