They say that Thursday night is the new Friday night. However, not all venues have caught onto this idea yet! That's why you have to be in the know to figure out where to go out in Amsterdam on a Thursday night.
From Amsterdam's local residents directly to you - here are the top 5 things to do in the city for a good night out on Thursday. Whether you're looking for a more chilled night at a bar or go wild at a club, we've got you covered.
Kattekwaad @ AIR
Thursday night is traditionally student night in Amsterdam. And a great place to go for that is AIR. AIR has been one of the big names in the Amsterdam club scene for a long time, conveniently located in Rembrandtplein, one of the nightlife hubs of the city. The club is poppin' on Thursday nights with a mix of locals and travelers.
Visit AIR to dance the night away if you like a club with an upscale decor, but without the pretentiousness. The music is generally hip hop or mainstream electronic music. Because it is a Thursday night & student night, cover is also relatively inexpensive - 5 euros on most nights.
Thirsty Thursday 'n Karaoke @ Coco's Outback
The Party with a Local app hosts a weekly meetup at Coco's Outback from 7pm onwards! Weekly meetups are hosted by Super Locals (local ambassadors) and are open to anyone who wants to meet new people. You can even get 25% off your bar tab from 7-10pm by showing the app.
What's more - every Thursday night at 9pm, there's a karaoke night at Coco's with cocktail happy hour! Get tipsy at the predrink then show off your singing skills (or lack thereof).
Who knows, you might even spot a unicorn...
Chin Chin Club
Chin Chin Club is the new kid on the block in Amsterdam's Thursday night scene, and we're excited about this one! The Asian-themed club is looking like it's going to bring mischief and whimsy back to this city.
According to an insider, the new Thursday night is all about the Asian "having fun" culture: from arcade, karaoke, ping pong, kawaii-ness to dancing and of course partying. And as they say, "Konnichiwa 嗨在日本, every Thursday night in Chin Chin Club is a bizarre Asian ride!"
Free entry until midnight, and after that the cover is 7.50 Euro.
Supperclub is a venue in Central Amsterdam that both serves dinner and is a club (but you really didn't need me to tell you that to know, right?)
Supperclub has an upscale decor, and the centerpiece of the club is its beds! Dining there is an experience in itself, but we're here to talk about the club night - which is quirky and energetic. The concepts of its Thursday nights are alternating: "BAMBU" for a night of the hits and "One Night Stand" for a sexy night out. If you enjoy the luxurious, exclusive type of clubbing Supperclub is for you.
Cover is 10 euros and table service is available.
Glow-in-the-Dark Mini Golf @ Glow Golf
We're throwing an unconventional suggestion into the mix of your Thursday night out: glow-in-the-dark minigolf!
Thursday is an awesome night be out and about, because it's when businesses in Amsterdam have extended business hours. So Glow Golf is open until 11pm, unlike their normal weekday operation hours until 9pm.
Switch up your usual Thursday night activities and go minigolfing with friends! Hit up the minigolf with blacklight and neon rave vibes, and get tripped up feeling like you're inside a video game.
