O'Casey's Irish pub: Just good fun
We had occasion to spend pleasant time here with two other VT er's. I can recommend it only for atmosphere, since we did not have the opportunity to eat while there. NathalieB has posted very good information about
O' Casey's and I recommend you to read her tips. I had my first Duvel there. I am very greatful to Nathalie for introducing me to this wonderful beer!
Dress Code: They do require clothing I am sure, but I don't think it is very formal!
The Hague does not have a reputation for a bustling night life. What night life there is centres around the luxurious Pathé Buitenhof cinema and a handful of bars and restaurants in its immediate vicinity. A similar pattern of night life centering around a cinema is present in Scheveningen.
Cremers: Nice coffeeshop
I myself don't like coffeeshops that much. But if you are looking for a nice one, you can go to Cremers. There are a lot of nice people over there who will love to make a chat with you. The age varies a lot. They serve free snacks. They serve al sorts of snacks and drinks.(and weeds ofcourse)
Het Paard: A cool club, sponsored by the government
It is a very cool place, if you're about 18-30 years old (it depends very much of the program of that night) It is financed by the government because the program often contains cultural events, groups or newcoming bands. But there are also bands and dj's playing from all over the world. You can inform yourself on www.paard.nl about the program of that night.
Dress Code: In Holland, sometimes you can't enter a club if you are wearing a cap and/ or sneakers, sport shoes. So just to be sure don't wear these things. I can't give more specific information about het Paard, because the bouncers decide if it's ok for you to enter. But here they are more friendly than most other clubs of the hague. When you get inside; you'll have to enter a detection gate, so be sure not to bring any sharp objects with you. And in most clubs you can't bring any food or drinks with you
If you want to just sit and drink something; Next to the club is Paard cafe. (this is more quiet and you don't have to pay entrance money)Related to:

Fiddler Den Haag: It's all about beer!
Great place to have a beer or two (or more). Fiddler located in the city center and serves beers such as Fiddler Ale, Ukel-Aley Pale Ale, Fiddler Blond, Oranjeboom Pils, Hoegaarden Witbier, Strongbow Cider and of course they have Guinness.
The bar is nicely decorated, especially on the second floor.
O'Casey's: THE Irish bar!
A really nice Irish bar that is located not so far from the Royal Palace Noordeinde. It has two floors as well as backyard which is open when it's not too cold or raining.
Except for the beer O'Casey's has live music performances, irish dancing, and of course it is a great place to party St. Patrick's Day while in The Hague.
Dress Code: It's a bar! Feel free to wear whatever you want.
O'Caseys: Irish Pub
On the same street as Palace Noordeinde, you'll find this amazing Irish Pub. Not only can you have a drink or two here, you can also enjoy some typical Irish snack, and even some Dutch ones. The bar is the first thing you'll see on entering the pub. At the end of the room there's a sitting area with a huge big screen TV for football matches, and you can also go upstairs to have a bite to eat.
O'Casey's: Another Irish pub
HAHA I seem to only know Irish pubs in this town. We went here for a few pints during the VT meeting. The place was packed downstairs with different football matches shown on different TVs and big screens. Very nice!
However, we went upstairs so that we could talk and the vinegar smell was kinda terrible here. But the Caffrey's was very tasty!
Dress Code: Are you joking? No way!
Circus Theatre: Large musical Productions!
Circus Theatre, where they perform big musicals like Aida, Elisabeth and so on.
If you don't speak Dutch, just listen to the beautiful music and enjoy yourself.
Reservations requiered.It is often sold out weeks or even months before the actual show.
De Paap: Beer and Music
A couple of times a week they have live music (more fun than artistic). On Fridays and Saturdays they are a late night party spot. Open until about 4 or 5am on the weekends, they tend to only get going at about midnight. If you go early you can amuse yourself for a while by playing darts (only 1 board, so just for fun, not a theme). Best thing about De Paap for me always came down to two things: friendly people who were always quick to strike up a conversation; good music that you can eventually dance to (rock, pop, alternative more than lounge, dance or techno). The music is relatively loud for people who don't like that. Generally the crowd is a bit older (say 25-40) though a few times that I went recently it seemed to bring in a decent amount of sub-20s.
Dress Code: Mostly dressing casual and somewhat stylish will do. There are doorman/bouncers who will keep you out if they don't like the look of you. One thing they tend to say is No Sneakers.
NightlifeThe Hague boasts the...
The Hague boasts the most famous night in the whole of Holland: the eve of Queen Beatrix' birthday. The whole of downtown The Hague becomes one big, swinging party with shows by various well-known bands, new musical talent and a festive fair around the Hofvijver pond! This night is called KoninginneNach; to be pronounced with a really broad, The Hague accent!
In addition to this night of all nights, The Hague has a varied nightlife which changes continuously, following the latest trends. As a result, you may find that a favorite pub or restaurant has suddenly closed down, while new bars, cafés, and discos are opening up all the time. Scheveningen has always had a dynamic nightlife, and even more so since the opening of 'Crazy Pianos', an American-style bar located close to the Steigenberger Kurhaus Hotel.
On the following pages you will find a selection of the many things you can do.
De Pijpenla: De Pijpenla
When all the other bars en clubs are closed, you still can find a lot of people and booze here. Don't bother going there before 2 AM, you will be the first (if they are open at all).
Dress Code: Anything goes. OK, Hell's Angels may have a hard time getting in.
The Golden Touch
The Golden Touch

Danzig and DeTropen (picture from D&T Website)
Truly a local hangout, this restaurant/dance bar always boasts a good cross-section of Den Haag characters. Nothing too exotic here, just regular young people letting their hair down. Note: come for the dancing/bar scene only Friday and Saturday, after 11:00 p.m.
Dress Code: Casual
