The fun in Amsterdam doesn’t stop when the sun goes down, and the crowded bars and clubs are testimony to this fact. If you're out in the evening and think bars look deserted, it's only because Amsterdam's nightlife starts rather late and you're probably out too early. With most clubs not opening their doors before 11.30pm and the party not taking off until 1am, many bars and lounges are full of pre-drinkers waiting to embark on a night out. Most bars in Amsterdam are small and rather crowded, so it's often difficult to find a comfortable spot. However, the cramped nature of these venues is a result of the fact that they're housed in many historic buildings, which are charming in their own right and offer an alternative nightlife experience. The city's nightlife is concentrated around two main squares: the Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein, so you always have plenty of options. As a result, a night out in Amsterdam can be a very cultural experience - even if you can't remember it the next morning.
