Best clubs in Amsterdam


Melkweg is a spot that cannot be left out. Not from this list, not from your visit to Amsterdam. It’s pop culture at its finest and throughout the week this city icon welcomes you for all kinds of events. Their program is legendary and includes theatre performances, (music)films and exhibitions but the club nights are definitely the cherry on the cake.

The club is located in the last remaining factory building at Leidseplein and back in the days, milk was their signature drink. But that’s all in the past because international DJ’s, musicians and two concert halls where you can party all night long are better served with cocktails and shots.

Melkweg is a non-profit organization that aims to please a wide audience, support experimentation and create a platform for young talent and subcultures. Freely translated this means it’s a club with few boundaries and endless opportunities. Attitudes don’t make it past the entrance and you don’t need to look fancy either. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly, Melkweg is for everyone and that includes you.


TIP: Your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket gives you free entrance to some of the best clubs and special events in Amsterdam.

Club Panama

In the Oostelijk Havengebied, also known as the Eastern Docklands, an old warehouse is home to Club Panama. This large historic building is impossible to miss and an excellent place to soak up the Amsterdam party feels. It can hold up to 1050 people so expect a party at Panama to be big in every way.

Ranked amongst the best in Amsterdam, Club Panama has a well-deserved reputation. Big house & techno DJ’s and live performances and the superb sound system mean that you can enjoy the music from any corner of the nightclub. Check what’s on before you head over to make sure you know what to expect.

A good atmosphere and helpful staff are always guaranteed so the only thing you need to worry about is getting your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket and select the events you want to check out. No need to dress up either, the only thing that needs to be in check are your dance moves.

Club Paradiso Amsterdam

Club Paradiso is conveniently located in the Leidseplein area and is a great choice for an evening filled with drinking, partying and dancing. This nightclub is among Amsterdam’s most noteworthy joints and is situated inside an old church which gives your party location unique characteristics and makes your night even more special.

But the sound of religious sermons has been drowned for decades by great music and performances. Local, as well as international artists, have made their appearance at ParadisoDavid Bowie was there in ’87 and Amy Winehouse, The Rolling Stones, and Prince have also honored the venue with a performance.

Paradiso’s club nights are just as fabulous as their show history. Listen to hip-hop, house, disco and new electronic music during Friday’s Zwarte Koffie (black coffee) at club Paradiso or pick an event from the extensive entertainment menu.  


At just a five minute walk from Amsterdam’s central station, you’ll find this club and podium located amidst canals and cafes. The name of this place, Bittersweet, is somewhat misleading as generally nights out at this spot are friendly like candy.

Bitterzoet’s goal is to please a broad audience with their varied offer that includes punk, rock, hip-hop, soul, ska, and funk. Say what? It might sound like a lot, but the underlying thought is to provide bands, DJ’s and musicians a platform to experiment with their unique sound.

Therefore it is also advisable to check the agenda before planning a night out at Bitterzoet, to make sure you get what you’re coming for. They’re open pretty much every night so when you need an escape from a quiet evening, keep this place in mind as a good option.

The intimate dance floor, nice stage area, and countless nooks and corners offer plenty of space for you to move your feet. Casual is key at this night spot so there’s no need to get your fancy attire dusted off for an occasion at this club.

Club Escape

Founded back in 1986, Escape is arguably the biggest nightclub in Amsterdam. It is situated right at the heart of Rembrandtplein, surrounded by at least a dozen other hangouts so the fact that it remains one of Amsterdam’s most popular party places probably says enough. It has made a name for itself both locally and internationally and people from near and far make their way to Escape.

The club features multiple venues which include the main hall, the club, and Escape deLux. Light and sound are aspects of a night out that are taken seriously and over the years Escape has had three big transformations to keep up to date. The club area is equipped with the newest technologies that take every party to a higher level.

Fill up on some tasty and delish meals courtesy of the Escape café to start your night out with a solid foundation. And to make things even better, your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket is your free invitation to this club and a night you will remember.
