It's true, everyone in Holland speaks English - but if you are planning on visiting Amsterdam, there is one Dutch word you will need to know: Proost!

Cheers, my friend! To a great night and a great life!

In Amsterdam, you'll never have a shortage of opportunities to shout "Proost!" on your nights out.  In fact,  our capital's nightlife is so rich; you'll need to extend your vacation just to get a taste of it all.  Clubs, pubs, gourmet restaurants, candlelit canal tours, parties, concerts...we have it all! So, let's get started. Because what you call Happy Hour...we call a warm up.

Want to exchange stories with fellow travelers? Head over to Hotel the Exchange on Damrak, where you can grab a drink and meet new people from all over the globe.Looking something a little more Dutch? With some rhythm, you say?! Amsterdam is full of nightclubs, from Jordaan to Dam Square. Clubs like Milky Way (Melkweg, in Dutch) offer a variety of rooms with different kinds of music that will cater to your every whim, while famous bands and the newest talents from Holland and abroad play live shows in venues all over the city. Or perhaps a bit of theatre is more your scene. You can catch nightly performances at Amsterdam’s historic Stadsschouwburg in Leidsesplein or in one of the many other theaters across the city.

Where can you find me on my nights out?  Beneath the restaurant with the best milkshakes in town, there is an underground club. Find those heavenly shakes, and you'll find me, too!

Oh! I almost forgot!  You'll need a password to get in. I'll give you a hint: it's the only Dutch word you'll need to know!

You'll call it the best night of your life...we call it just another night!
