Amsterdam Bars and Clubs, Drinking Vacation

Explore Pubs and Bars in Amsterdam


Amsterdam offers lively, cosmopolitan nightlife featuring everything from modern lounge bars and clubs, to historic pubs (“brown cafés”) and proeflokalen (tasting houses) that serve primarily Dutch liquors, including jenever. Some of the finest pubs in the city include Café het Arendsnest, which only serves Dutch beers, and Café Sluyswacht. If you want to go clubbing, check out Bitterzoet and Powerzone, Amsterdam’s largest clubs. Ask a local where to find their favorite pub! If you’re around in late October, celebrate and sample quality beers at Amsterdam’s annual PINT Bokbierfestival.
