About Amsterdam, Netherlands Nightlife
When the sun goes down, Amsterdam transforms into a whole new city. The cobblestone streets are quiet and the bridges are elegantly lit. The moon shines softly over the water. Inside, however, the party is just getting started. From funny comedy clubs to venues that feature energetic DJs and trendy bars to relaxed brown cafes, Amsterdam is alive with energy. Whether you want to have a drink with friends, enjoy a performance or dance until dawn, the city offers a diverse nightlife scene with a little something for everyone. One component that particularly stands out is the city’s live music scene. Visitors are able to find just about every genre – classical, jazz, blues, rock ‘n roll, indie and more. Not sure where to start? The whole city is sprinkled with great establishments, but Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein are two of the most lively nightlife areas. Please note the trams stop around 00:30, but night buses and taxis are always available.
