When visiting Amsterdam you can of course choose to go to the Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum, take a walk through the Vondelpark, visit Dam square or go to the Anne Frank House for some true Dutch culture.

The clubscene in Amsterdam is a diverse one. There are quite a few clubs that are very welcoming to tourists, and you’ll find all sorts of nationalities here. So you can do some international bonding over a beer while dancing the night away. Just a few that are worth a visit:
“Sugarfactory in Amsterdam is a dynamic, open-minded and creative place where club, live music and theatre meet.”
- Chigaco Social Club
“Right in the middle of the madness of the Leidsesquare in Amsterdam you’ll find the friendly bar and club Chicago Social Club.”
- Disco Dolly
“Disco Dolly is located in the Handboogstraat in the centre of Amsterdam. Disco Dolly is a mix between a nightclub and a bar, a bar-dancing if you like.”
“A cozy spot for a late night out! Normally if you’d like to have a late night drink in Amsterdam, you probably have to settle for a somewhat sleazy dive bar or a loud club. No longer now that Bloemenbar is here!”
“One of Amsterdam’s largest and most popular night clubs, located in the city center.”
- Club NYX
“Is an openminded gay club where everybody is welcome, whether you are gay, straight, male, female or somewhere in between.”
- Club NL
“Club NL is a uniquely stylish nightclub located in the heart of Amsterdam. With its excellent vibe and easy-going staff it serves as the perfect drinking and dancing joint to spend the night.”
Club NL MEETS Floorplay
Paul Sparkes – Floorplay founder:
Floorplay was started to make a cosmopolitan clubbing night accessible for locals and international visitors. The key to the longevity of the event is great music and a genuinely mixed crowd. People regularly travel from other European countries to sample the atmosphere of Floorplay. The Internet has shrunk the world and we have even had people coming from Asia and America to our nights. Despite the Internet making the world smaller, people still wish to go out and meet people and socialise and dance and that’s essential in these days of digital connectedness.
We have been running for 8 years, that’s well over 100 editions and we often bring in big name DJs at our events. Funnily enough, people always say that web connection is quite poor in the club but I think that’s a good thing. I like the fact that people are not glued to their phones and can communicate with each other and get into a great night of music. The mix of nationalities at Floorplay truly adds something unique to our monthly events.
People love Floorplay and they love the city of Amsterdam. It has so much to offer with its wonderful galleries, beautiful canals monuments. A day outside the city is also well worth it, with miles of unspoilt countryside. Amsterdam was also voted number 8 in the poll for the most desirable cities to live in.
