Need to find good Hip Hop / RnB nights in January! Help!

Hi All,

I'll be in Dam 25th - 27th Jan, Fri to Sun, for my boyfriend's birthday. I know Amsterdam isn't famous for its hip hop scene, but does anyone know of anything good that weekend? He really doesn't like house music so don't want to end up at a hous / techno rave.

I checked out Cafe de De Duivel's website but it isn't clear whether they're open anymore.

Heard Bitterzoet is good. And I looked on Melweg which had a night Encore (but also said it's Ladies night??). Does anyone know if these will be any good.

Any help appreciated! Thanks, Robina

Cafe de Duivel is open until 4 am Friday and Saturday nights. Bitterzoet is a venue not a club similar to the Melkweg. And it looks like they will be playing some hip-hop but other music as well. http://www.bitterzoet.com/#/agenda/1548 It looks like The Illest, 90's hip-hop and R&B, at Jimmy Woo might be your best option Saturday night. http://www.jimmywoo.com/program/view/id/497/

If you ever need to know what is going on where in The Netherlands and Belgium visit, http://www.djguide.nl/?language=en

90s hip hop and RnB sounds perfect.

Is Jimmy Woo difficult to get in to? Will just be me and my boyfriend, he dresses in trainers / quite casually (he's from South London).

Good to know Duivel is open, will definitely be going there!

Thanks a lot

Trainers might get him turned away at the door but since he's with a girl they might not make a deal of it. But usually Jimmy Woo is not hard to get into with a couple. You could always buy a pre-sale ticket to give you a better chance of getting in. Not to mention its 5 euro cheaper!

I'm also going to Amsterdam that weekend, and also from South London haha :) Oh, and I'm also looking for a few venues that play R&B and Hip-Hop...

Does anyone know of any bars that play R&B, rather than clubs? Balou, do you know if Jimmy Woo do something a bit more chilled out on a Friday or Sunday night?

Club Hartje near the Leidseplein is supposed to play nothing but R&B but I've never been. Jimmy Woo is one the most popular clubs in Amsterdam. It usually jumping at the weekends. Also, have a look at the site that I posted earlier
