Jimmy Woo, Amsterdam
This club is one of the latest additions to the Amsterdam night life and a huge success. Here, you will find a mix of modern design and ancient Hong Kong, a large lounge area and a dance floor with excellent lightning and sound system
Jimmy woo is definitely one of the most elegant night club in Amsterdam. It is very very attractive and really worth to visit. Indeed a visit to Amsterdam nightlife may not be fulffilled without a visit to Jimmy woo.
Jimmy woo is located in a narrow road at leidse plein, very near to the square. When you reach the leidse square you will see Burger King, sports cafe, Bulldog on one side and Three sisters, Black and White, Suzy wong on the other side. Jimmy woo is just on the three sisters side. You can only see a black door outside, even hard to recognise, but on weekends there is always a queu in front and you may not miss it.
The club has a reservation system. I suggest to make a reservation through your hotel one or two days earlier. If you can get in the list than you can get in more easily, however if your hotel fails to make a reservation you still can try your chance. Just stand in front of the club in the queu, may be five minutes, may be twenty minutes but soon you will be asked if you have a reservation. There is a lady who is holding a list and also decide who to let in. I must admit she is really talented and looking georgeous. You can tell her that your hotel failed to make a reservation, which I did.. Than she asked me which hotel I was staying and I said Swissotel Amsterdam than I was in. Please Note; they dont let a group of boys without a girl.
When you enter the club, you pay the entrance fee of 12,- Euros and climb narrow stairs up. There you can leave your jacket and coats. They dont charge for it.. Than you open the door and hear the tune. The club has two floors, upper floor is the main big bar, where you can have your drink, sit in the sofas and talk with your friends. This place is more to watch and to be watched. When you are ready, go downstairs. This is the club part. You will see the DJ stand, the bar and nothing else but dancing people. The music in the club is awesome, awesome, awesome. You wont regret any minute.
Dress Code: There is no strict dress code. However the nicer you look, the more chance you will have to be in. Especially some nights are over booked and even if you are the smartest people around, you may not get in, But practically being there with nice dress, may be with some known brands shall give you more chance..
CINEAC: Great food, service, atmosphere and usually full of interesting characters -
The design of the place (its the old planet hollywood) very luxurious and plush - the dancers also make it a night to remember.
RAIN, also on Rembrant plein is worth trying.
CLUB NL. near the centre but also worth going to
JIMMY WOOS, young but great design
SUZIE WOO, across from JIMMY WOO, nice cocktails and people great place to hang
Dress Code: Whatever (Dutch style is fairly laid back) but do make a little effort.
