Best of Both
Big clubs often kick off their parties later in the evening, but who says you must wait till 1 am to get your groove on? Design your pub crawl to embrace the best of both worlds, starting with a few bar visits and concluding in one of the larger clubs.
Your journey can begin at Drink n' Sink, a local favourite that initiates the revelry early on, making it an excellent first stop. From there, head over to El Punto Latino to savor some salsa, bachata, and merengue. Its vibrant ambiance serves as an impeccable warm-up for the rest of the night. We recommend wrapping up your pub crawl at Club Candela, a unique establishment located near the main square. It boasts a skillful bar staff and an energetic dance floor that sees a mix of local and international performers.
Mix, Match, Dance!
While the night described above is just one option, the permutations are virtually limitless. So, we've curated a list of places that would seamlessly fit into your pub crawl, all conveniently situated in the city centre.
Dinner Time & Early hours
The Red Light District springs to life at this time. Begin your night at Hot Or Not, where your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket grants you a 'buy one beer, get one free' deal. Enjoy a hearty meal and a drink to set the base for the night before you progress to the next stop.
9 PM - Midnight (and sometimes beyond!)
Embrace the local custom of starting the party in a cozy 'gezellig', as the Dutch say) bar or a smaller club. Surprise Bar in the Leidse Square area is renowned for setting the right atmosphere for an epic night out. Alternatively, T'lammetje is another fan favorite that serves up an energizing welcome shot and electrifying beats from live DJs.
Another favorite in the area is Club Hartje , where 9 pm is the starting sign of the fun to begin, regardless of what day it is. The Monday mood doesn’t exist at this place and a free welcome shot makes you forget about all your troubles and makes those feet move towards a night full of dancing. Hits and dance music provide everyone an opportunity to sing along and live DJ’s will deliver the beats.
Having your pre-midnight bash around Rembrandt square? Club Prime and Smokey both start the night a little later, at 11 pm and absolutely deliver in the professional party department. Dress up if you’re heading over to one of these spots. Nothing too fancy, but definitely no sportswear. Ready to find out where style meets nightlife in Amsterdam?
Club Prime is bold, flashy and never sits still. EDM, hip-hop, R&B and dance are what it sounds like and you won’t be disappointed in the looks and drinks department either. Smokey is open seven days a week and the standard is up each night with DJ’s always in the house.
