Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

The concierge at our hotel recommended this place, as we wanted a fun club with great table service, since we had a large group. It was our one night out and we wanted a place where we could hang out as a group, while still being part of a fun club.

Our table was booked for a group of 8 and the price paid was close to $800 just for the table alone (alcohol, beyond the first bottle, was separate). Upon arrival, they escorted us to a tiny small table propped up against a wall hidden behind the DJ booth with no chairs or seating. I've never heard of "table service" where you eight of you must stand crowded around a cocktail table. Nearly a dozen other tables sat empty at this point. Upon speaking to the hostess, she informed me those tables were already booked for their "regulars" and when I protested, she informed me "it is done" and walked away. The manager was able to move the "table" at least to the side of the DJ booth so we'd have some view, but the idea that customers paying hundreds of euros for VIP table service would not even be given proper service that you'd find anywhere else in the world is laughable.

Even more frustrating was the fact that even though most of the empty tables were eventually sat, very few actually drank much alcohol. In our case, we were buying a lot of vodka and champagne, yet we couldn't even be given a proper place to drink it. The cocktail waitress herself wanted to tend to her regulars and we were treated like an annoyance all night long.

To be clear, I know bottle service is kind of a posh thing to complain about except that we were clear to the concierge (who in turn was clear with the club) that we wanted a nice table to all hang out and were given subpar service, probably because we were foreigners who they assumed would never return. Even shadier is they make you prepay for the table itself before you even get to see where you'll be seated (or not seated as the case may be), as they seemingly know you'll be unhappy with the accommodations.

Brilliant night! This place was recommended by some locals as the best place on a Monday night. We arrived around 11 and there was already a long queue outside.

This is a very selective place so some people were turned away as they were not dressed well enough but we had no issues and got in straight away.

The crowd is very much "the beautiful people of Amsterdam" which felt very exclusive and cool. The music was great all night. The bar men were friendly and the drinks very generous!

Would recommend to anyone! make sure to be dressed up to the hundred and get yourself on the guest list!

This is the most idiotic club, I have come across.
We were 10 to 15 people and we paid for the entry beforehand on New Year's Eve and they did not let us enter.
They said they won't refund the money and won't let us enter too.
I'm a student and I live on a budget.
Really sad to see how this club is conning people even on New Years.

Club Abe is the most fanciest club in Amsterdam! It seem that Amsterdam needed such a club for a very long time, and finally few months ago the people who opened Abe decided to 'raise the glove'!

Beautifully designed, great drinks, service, music, and vibe :)

Highly recommended!!

Not one of those big rundown other clubs in Amsterdam!
Middle sized, split into 2 areas: 1 lounge and 1 club, both with a DJ of their own.
Good prizes compared to the other expensive clubs or hotel venues, plus free water, free wardrobe and free toilets!

Loved the music on the different nights we visited: from R&B, hiphop to eclectic and soul.
Just really a club with beautiful people from all over the place.

Was told it was an Rn'B club, which it wasn't. Since the music is what makes or breaks a club I would have loved for them to play just one recognizable tune. It felt like a closed party for the DJ and his friends (one of the friends was handed a mic and repeated "everybody say", "everybody say" and trust me, nobody said nothing......)

If you're looking for a hip hop and rnb club in Amsterdam on a Monday, I would recommend this club.
We visited ABE on a Monday night and it if was rather packed for a Monday. The bouncers were friendly and easy going. They didn't check ID but you need to look attractive and presentable to get into this club.
Entry was €20 for my boyfriend but I got in free. The drinks was were a reasonable price of €11.
The only downfall of this club was towards the end of the night a couple songs were repeated.
But this is a decent club !

My girlfriend went to Club Abe last weekend, while staying in Amsterdam.it's the newest and as it seems hottest place around.
First we went on our arrival night, being thursday and were presently suprised by the great atmosphere: from the door to the dancefloor you feel comfortable.
Acces was no problem, as long as the clothing is more than worn off sneakers and jeans.
Lots of ladies, which must come from the safe feeling the whole operation has. Only mature people of I guess 25+ with something to spend. No jong kids or kickboxing types. Which is kind of unique in this city of freedom in everything.
Cocktails were served in style and they have this great alloy Heineken collectors bottle that is hard to get.

We especially liked the seperate lounge area in between clubbin. Less sound makes speach possible and rhe girl behind the bar does every effort to make you feel at home!

We will definately return upon out next visit.
