    Just walk in a bar. Amsterdam has many fine bars.

    Filip and i caught up with my brother Rob, who is still living in Amsterdam. Rob took us to ´de Heuvel´.
    A nice bar with the following motto:

    Als ik sneuvel, dan liever bij de Heuvel!

    (If i perish, i prefer it being in ´de Heuvel´)

    Katsu: Katsu Coffeeshop

    by BlueBerry_7 Written Oct 28, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A bit far out from the centrum and quite tricky to find. Also the place is very small and stuffy with very few seats. Another downfall is they only sell prepackaged weed and hash and it is very overpriced. There is a cool pinball machine which is the best thing about the place

    Dress Code: Casual

    Kooy Wine and Cheese: Tour the Canals at night

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Amsterdam is an entirely different city at night. One of the best ways to see it is on one of ships that cruise the canals. A truly magical experience.

    Dress Code: European flair, so skip the jeans and athletic shoes at night.

    You must check out their 'brown cafes' here in Amsterdam.

    I didn't realize what brown cafes mean until a Dutch friend educated me on the real meaning of it. :-))

    So, let me now try and explain it to you... and you can see if I've paid attention to what I was being taught/ told!

    Brown Cafes are actually a warm, comfortable meeting and drinking place(s) for the Dutch and their cool friends. They mentioned that they are called 'Brown' because of the walls that were stained by centuries of tobacco smoke wafting through the air! And they like to use the term 'gezellig' because that's the Dutch word for cozy or comfortable. So, order a glass of gin and Heinekin (Dutch beer), my friends! I hope I've explained the above term correctly.

    Dress Code: Smart Casuals; hip dressing only, please. The Dutch people DO dress very fashionably... although some of them look grungy - but in a hip way, ya know?

    For culture vultures (ahem!), don't forget to pop by the Muziektheater to catch a 'live' ballet or opera performance. If you want to know what's currently showing, DO check with your hotel concierge. He'd be able to help.

    We hit The Odeon and met 2 wonderful local Amsterdam girls. Very friendly and gave us some great info.
    Then we hit the Supper Club - This placed rocked! Be liberal though. The DJ was spinning nutty music, and it seemed that everyone's drugs kicked in at the same time... Very nice!
    On Sunday night we went to a place called the DJ CO. Cool joint, had a very sexy DJ INGRID!

    Dress Code: Always dress to impress!

    One of my favorite cafe's is cafe 'De Buurvrouw'. It is located behind Damsquare. The play good (alternative, rock) music overthere and the atmosphere is very relaxed. You can play pool while zipping your beer and once in a while there is a DJ playing there.

    A tip for the ones who like to drink more than one drink during a night out. In the popular places such as the Leidsesquare and the Rembrandtsquare you pay a lot more for your drink than elsewhere.

    Club More crazy people, good atmosphere and perfect lounge space, where you can also eat lovely food at is house (but no hardcore or trance!!) address Rozengracht Dresscode is trendy for the guys no sneakers..but that is a tip for a lot of places in amsterdam...with sneakers there is a posibility you will be not allowed to get in.. (and with sneakers I mean sleazy ones or the old NIke version)

    Hotel Arena, backpackhotel and disco in one..every friday night you have here 80's and 90's music
    dresscode whatever you like, all sorts of people

    For lazy sunday afternoons you really have to go to De Club, , held in Cubicfrom 17.00 till 01.00 you can dance, relax eat something and watch people here also a lot of famous actors, singers you can find here...Music style is disco, funk and freestyle. After 19.00 only entrance with clubcard!!!
    Address: Jan van Gaalen straat, its a bit out of the city but every taxidriver knows where to drive you. Its almost 10 to 15 minutes from citycenter.

    There are many coffe shops, bar/pubs and 'adult movie theaters' in Amsterdam. They also have all-night Raves, if you can find them. Just beware of British Hooligans bar hopping. (no offense to Brits please, i just had a few 'incidents' with that particular group.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    East Of Eden
    Linnaeusstraat 11 (665 07 423).
    True to its name, East of Eden has a distinct tropical flavor to it: yellowish walls, cane furniture, painted elephants behind the bar, and lots of light through the high windows. It has a large terrace with a good view of the nearby Royal Tropical Institute. East of Eden attracts a mixed crowd of locals and, during the day, visitors of the Tropenmuseum.
    Open 11am-1am (2am weekends).

    Every month (check out site) Earth is a party that takes place in the Melkweg, near the Leidseplein. Top of the list DJ's from all over the planet. The Melkweg is an old milk factory in the center of Amsterdam. Two large rooms, a cinema, a relaxing bar and more! The crowd is very mixed, outgoing and relaxed.

    A great place for a lunch or just a drink at the end of the day. And on a beautiful day it's a good place to sit down and watch the people passing by.

    OK so I suppose some of you are probably wondering what the story is with the Coffeeshops in Amsterdam. Yes they do sell marijuana or hash. While most of us don't regularly use the stuff there are certainly those occasions. The below picture is a picture of the street where it is located.

    I suppose it's a nightlife spot, but for me it's good any time, especially when you need a little relaxation during the day. This was the first Brown Cafe I visited in Amsterdam, many years ago. It has never lost it's appeal. Great Ambience.

    Dress Code: Not an issue
