The club scene in Amsterdam is probably the most eclectic in Europe, with everything from jazz haunts to techno temples and electro dens.
Many of the clubs double up as art galleries, restaurants and edgy cultural spaces, hitting all the right notes under one roof.
Home to two dance halls, a cinema, a theatre and a café, Melkweg (Lijnbaansgracht) is one of the best venues in town, along with Sugarfactory (also Lijnbaansgracht) and De Marktkantine (Jan van Galenstraat), an old canteen converted into a cutting-space cultural hotspot.
For live music, nowhere beats Paradiso, a music temple built into a former church in Weteringschans. The acoustics are sensational, creating just the right atmosphere for all manner of live gigs and the perfect amount of echo draws big name acts from all over the globe.
If you like things a little more raw, visit OCCII, an underground nirvana of squat-like gigs, breaking bands and vegan cuisine on Amstelveenseweg.
Amsterdam is home to a gaggle of gay hangouts, all guaranteed to show you a good time.
PRIK is a gay cocktail lounge in the city centre (Spuistraat), with uber-pink upholstery, sparkly pop DJs and a popular menu touting ‘bubbles and bites’.
Meanwhile, De Trut (Bilderdijkstraat) is an underground non-commercial gay club where mobile phones are politely forbidden, inviting customers to make merry in the real world without fiddling about on Facebook every five minutes.
Finally, Club Church is a gay club in Kerkstraat where anything goes, making it prime hangout and hook-up territory.
