DESTINATIONS netherlands amsterdam Bars & Nightlife Paradiso


Paradiso has been a centre for pop culture since the 1960s. Today, after thousands and thousands of concerts, the pop venue has reached worldwide recognition. Though national and international pop music is the primary focus, programming has now been expanded to include other disciplines such as classical, world music, festivals and spoken word.

Bars & Nightlife

The dance clubs in Amsterdam might feel too small for somebody who is used to flashy clubs in NY, LA, or London, but don't worry — they can be just as entertaining and delightfully crazy. Hip, laid-back or sophisticated — the choice is yours.
