Nightlife in Amsterdam, what is it like?

I will be in Amsterdam during the summer, and I want to know what the nightlife is like there? Any suggestions on places to check out? Nothing too crazy, I don't like massive crowds so some laid back spots would be great!

    Hi Catherine,

    Amsterdam is a very fun night out. I went with friends a couple of years ago in January, and we had a blast. The locals hang out near Leidseplein, aka Leiden Square. There are all sort of bars near there, from the packed and trendy, to some quieter spots. Locals are friendly and will chat. Most seem to dress fairly casually for their nights out. Drinks are really expensive though! Have fun!

    Julie

    Wouldnt necessarily recommend Leidseplein as it's quite busy, mostly with tourists. There are many many nice bars in Amsterdam, and also dance clubs and concert venues. Would help to know a little bit more what youre looking or what area you're staying in..

    Hi Catherine, just arrived yesterday from my Amsterdam trip and I can recommend you two options near Leidseplein called Cafe Cox, Café Lux B.V.. Frequented by locals more than tourists.

    I'd also recommend Café Flamingo in Eerste van der Helststraat, not far from the first recommendations.

    Let me know what you find out! I have a layover there from 3 PM to 10:30 AM in March (purposefully extended for exploration purposes!) I will also make sure to let you know what I find out once I complete my adventure.
