Why Amsterdam Is So Cool

So is awesome right? Well, part of the reason it’s so great is its location in Amsterdam’s Central District. This part of the city is completely full of incredible clubs, venues, galleries, and shops. Here are a few highlights:

  • It’s super easy to walk to all the attractions – everything is within one square mile!
  • The Leidseplein neighborhood features internationally renowned clubs Paradiso and Melkweg, as well as some other great venues Sugar Factory, Nova, Jimmy Woo, Suzy Wong, Social Club, Luminaa, Stanislavski, Club Blinq, Van Dyck Bar, No. 129, and De Balie.
  • Also close is Amsterdam’s “night-on-the-town” neighborhood Rembrandtplein, which is home to even more awesome clubs and venues, as well as Reguliersdwarsstraat, known as Amsterdam’s “ street.”
  • Another nearby neighborhood is the Red Light District, which, in addition to being famous for other reasons, hosts venues, clubs, and bars that have specials related to Festival & Playground.
  • On the other side of the canals, you’ll find more clubs, and also Bitterzoet, the hang-out of many local producers.
  • There’s a great museum called FOAM, the Museum, a cinema, MMouse, where you can go to relax and meditate.
  • Finding food is a thing of ease: “The inner city also features some of the finest restaurants in town. Yokiyo, situated in the Red Light District, sports the best Korean BBQ in the canals. Talking of meat, Cannibale Royale (Handboogstraat) is your prime (rib) location and New King (Zeedijk) serves some great mandarin cuisine while conference hub The Dylan even has its own Michelin-starred restaurant (Vinkeles). Other great spots are Kaagman & Kortekaas (French cuisine, Sint Nicolaasstraat), burger bar Burgerlijk (Runstraat, the 9 Streets) and Toscanini (Lindengracht, the Jordaan).”
  • Festival & Playground is literally right there.
