Amsterdam Nightlife Cheat Sheet

In Amsterdam for a short time and want to experience the best of the best of its legendary nightlife? Here's Party with a Local's quick n' dirty guide to partying like an Amsterdammer! Our recommendations come from our Amsterdam Super Locals.

Best Bar for Beers: Arendsnest

It's Party with a Local Founder Dan's favorite bar for beers - they only serve Dutch beers - 30 on tap and more than 100 in bottle!


Best Club: Radion

Super Local Jaap loves this venue, a secret hideout for true electronic music lovers in Amsterdam with an industrial decor.


Best Live Music Venue: Paradiso

Paradiso used to be a church. Nowadays, it's a very different kind of church - THE church for live music in Amsterdam - and Super Local Alex's go-to spot for an evening out.


Best Drunk Munchie: FEBO

No night in Amsterdam is complete without drunkenly chowing down deep fried croquettes from vending machines at the chain FEBO. Use exact change.


Best Hangover Breakfast: Pancakes

A Dutch Pancake is key for recovering from a long night out. The Pancake Bakery is great, but if you befriend Super Local Elise, she just might make you the best pancakes in town.
