Move to Netherlands

Amsterdam Entertainment

In general, the Dutch like to have fun, and party! Main cities throughout the Netherlands are well-supplied with sophisticated nightclubs and discos, but the late-opening bars and cafes are just as popular. There are no official licensing hours, so it is possible in the big cities to get a drink more or less at any time.

There are theaters and cinemas in all major towns – the arts are popular in Holland and play a big role in life. Amsterdam is a cosmopolitan city, with some of the liveliest nightlife in Europe. The brown cafes are an institution – Holland’s equivalent of the local pub. Its famous (or infamous) red light district, de Wallen, is a magnet for visitors, and there are numerous bars, clubs and ‘coffee’ shops in the neighborhood. Interestingly, although tobacco smoking is now banned in enclosed public spaces, joints rolled purely with marijuana can still be consumed in these places, which are also evident in most other Dutch cities and an attraction on its own to the many visitors. 

Rotterdam has a wide selection of good nightclubs, and a lively harborside café and restaurant scene, while The Hague leans heavily on theater and dance. University city Utrecht offers a large casino and the lively nightlife scene associated with a large student population.

Another popular option is a dinner cruise through the canals and harbor aboard a glass-topped boat. There are legal casinos in several main towns and cities.
