Where To Go Out on Sunday Nights in Amsterdam

For many, Sunday is the day of rest. But those that wish to continue to party may easily do so in Amsterdam! Sundays in Amsterdam are popular for daytime parties. Most these parties end by 11pm, and then a select few clubs take over to carry the party over to early morning. Check out Amsterdam locals' suggestions on the top places to go out on Sundays.


Thuishaven is one of the most unique venues in Amsterdam. It's a circus-themed outdoor venue with tents. Located above Westerpark close to the docks, it's turned a previously industrial area into a weekend hotspot in the city.

Circus performers, glitter, and of course a killer soundsystem are just a few of the things that Thuishaven offers to Amsterdam's nightlife scene. They usually book very solid techno talent, and sometimes host special events of other genres too. It's a must-visit for nightlife enthusiasts!

Thuishaven parties run all year long - with its Summer Circus and (heated) Winter Circus parties - with some breaks in between, so check the schedule before you go. Parties on Sunday usually end by 11pm.

De School

Although De School has only been around for less than 2 years, hopes have been high for it since Day 1. Not only was it awarded the Amsterdam night scene's first 24-hour license, it was also started by the same people who founded Amsterdam's legendary now-shuttered Trouw. And it has not disappointed.

De School has extended operating hours, which means that it is often open on Sundays too! They have both daytime parties and nighttime parties. If you love techno, be sure to know the lineup (or you may be denied entry) and check out De School. And remember, no phones on the dance floor!
