“Best Nightclub in Dam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

I went to Escape for my birthday. I've been to the biggest nightclubs in Las Vegas, Miami and Ibiza, and this one is among the best. Sure it's not cheap, but it's well worth the money. Live DJ on stage feels more like a concert. The second club within the club was playing hip hop music and it was nice to go between both. Overall I had a really fun night and would definitely recommend making it here once during your stay in Amsterdam.

“The just try to cheat turist / cercano solo di fregare i turisti”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Not so good...
16 euro for entrance (no drink included), 1,5 euro for EACH object for the wardrobe, even for the toilet you have to pay!!
Moreover, the drink were diluted! We were 10 people, we took tequila and several other drinks and shots, and none of us was high!

Music in main area impossible to dance for me (but this is subjective), light animation was cool.
Audience was most made by turists, due to the central location and the fact that locals probably know how much this disco sucks!!

So, at the end I feel this could be a nice disco, if only they stop to cheat turists, and give normal drinks !!


Amici italiani, cercate di andare in altre disco se potete perché qui fanno pagare anche l'aria che respiri, e inoltre il bere era allungato.....
da evitare!

“Expensive!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Escape was an impressive club, deco inside was amazing, and the lights were fab. But at 16 euros to get in, 9 euros for a smirnoff ice and 2 euros for a pee was very expensive.

“Nice club & good music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This club is rather big, good music, cheap drinks (beers starting €2), and on Thursdays they have student nights - free entrance for students! I have been here 3 times, and every time was fun! Some nights are a little pricey ranging from €10-20, but if you like your House music, you will love it there, and the light shows are great as well! Can only recommend!

“Fun club!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Great experience, they had a decent price for a table (300 Euro but they will try and upsell you) and that came with a liter of alcohol or champagne. The DJs played a great house/trance mix and Miss Taylor was hosting that night and she was awesome. The only annoying thing was people constantly trying to get in our area and I had to ask them to leave. The staff were great about replacing our ice and fulfilling our demands. Also, it closes at 5 AM which is crazy but awesome, I guess I am used to everything closing at 1:30 AM in the states!
