This week we visit: The Netherlands
Some people will say that Berlin is the world party capital, or maybe Sao Paulo or maybe London. Those people don’t know what they’re talking about. There is only one party capital of the world and its name is Amsterdam.
Amsterdam is almost a victim of its own reputation which in many people evokes the Red Light District, seedy bars and more illegal drugs than Eric Clapton in his golden years could have done. In reality, this is only a small fraction of Amsterdam’s party scene. The other side of this coin are beautiful young people, zest for life and some of the best parties in the world.
There are innumerable cool bars in Amsterdam, all with their own unique vibe, such as Café Belgique, the chic Tolhuistuin, the old dog Café Lux and the most laidback bar you will ever see – De Nieuwe Anita.
The choice of top-notch clubs is also insane, with places such as Studio 80, Trouw, Club Up, OT301 and Bitterzoet opening their doors every night and inviting party-goers to spend entire nights there. Each and every of Amsterdam’s many clubs would be the best club in your city.
One of the best things about Amsterdam and one that makes it such a fantastic party city is that everything is close and you can get pretty much everywhere on foot.
