Leidensplie has bars, food, music and lots of people. What they don't have is an easy way to remember where the hell you parked your car before hitting the bars... Free advise, take a picture of the names on the street corner when you park, or you will spend several hours walking in circles looking for your car. At night... More

This place to find nightlife in Amsterdam! From an early evening drink to partying late into the night this is a fantastic place to start your evening. From here there are bars, parties and locals who will happily point you in the direction of any type of party you're looking for!

Not my favourite part of Amsterdam but there is plenty going on and during any visit to the city you will get the chance to go along this street. Shops are the second division type you will find in any major city. The good thing is you can divert off onto one of the major canals.

Leiden square is a place with lots of good restaurants. Cuisines from whole world (and many Argentinian restaurants). The atmosphere is nice, but that guys trying to convince you to choose their restaurant is annoying.

A nice square full of restaurants and bars, gets very busy on a weekend. Avoid the pankcake sports bar, the pancakes are rubbish. There is also an Apple store in the square if you're sad enough to queue up to get in!

stayed around the corner at the Amsterdam American Hotel and came here quite often in the evening for something to eat. There are many establishments to choose from with a wide variety of eats but multiples of the same type of restaurants offering similar fare. Number of trams serving the area, even a burger King and McDonalds for those on... More
