Amsterdam Bars and Cafes

From traditional to tacky, Amsterdam's nightlife offers a veritable cornucopia of possibilities. Sipping a beer by the canals in Jordaan is a popular choice for laid-back locals, but when the weekend lands hardworking Amsterdammers don't hesitate to let loose. The city is home to some of the best live music venues and nightclubs in Europe. Finally, a real Amsterdam alternative is the city's many "coffee shops", which offer legal highs day and night, though with a strict ban on alcohol.
