At the origins, the building was hosting a milk factory but in our days’ space is divided into multiple rooms. Concerts, expositions, events, and films take place here. Space has a very good acoustic so it is a real pleasure to dance and listen to a concert here or even to join a public event.

Café de Doktor is one of the oldest bars and a very representative place for Amsterdam nightlife. This small bar was founded in 1798 is the perfect way to travel in time. The interior of the bar is vintage and looks the same as it was on the first day. Classic jazz enchants your hearing while you relax and travel back in time. The place has a real positive vibe and is located pretty close to Amsterdam Red Light District.

  • 3. Watch a concert at the Het Muziektheater

Het Muziektheater also is known as the Dutch National Opera and Ballet is an imposing building overlooking the Amstel River. The center is located pretty close to Museum Het Rembrandhuis and is home to many theatre plays and ballet numbers. The architecture of the building is very nice and the view from the balconies and from the entire hall is just perfect! Book your tickets in advance because the tickets for most plays are sold very fast.
