“"Great venue, reasonably priced drinks too"” 5 of 5 bubbles
Review of Melkweg

Attraction details
Owner description: Melkweg stands for pop culture in the most broad of senses. Each year, hundreds of concerts, club nights, films and music films, theatre performances, expositions and multidisciplinary events together attract more than 400,000 visitors. The venue is located in the only surviving factory building on the Amsterdam canal ring, a former sugar and, later, milk factory. This historical building houses two concert halls, a cinema, a theatre, and an exposition space, which each can be used separately or combined together. In the Melkweg, established names can be seen alongside new talent and emerging styles get the chance to reach a broader audience. The diversity of its programming and visitors, together with its different spaces and special location, have for years made the Melkweg a unique place.

“"Great venue, reasonably priced drinks too"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

I went to watch Sizzla there on the 29th March. It was the best gig I have ever been too, great sound quality and in what I believe to be the smaller room too. It easily held 1200 people. Bars at the back and right-hand side of the room. Lots of no smoking signs which people blatantly ignored, that didn't ruin the experience though. An excellent night.

“Good club”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

Very good club in central Amsterdam with a variety of customers types. Two dancefloors. One for electronic music, the other for live music, Very crowded, perhaps best to go not too late. Entry ticket price is reasonable. Great atmosphere inside. Would go back

“One of a Kind Concert Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

The venerable Melkweg in Amsterdam is a rare and wonderful concert venue for live music. Consisting of two different large rooms, the venue hosts, among other concerts, the Jam on the Dam--a celebration of jamband music. This three-day festival usually takes place in March and the concert goer can move from room to room to see staggered sets of their favorite jambands. Great sound and atmosphere, a live concert experience you won't soon forget.

“Small music venue hosting BIG acts.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

Saw Dispatch here this week. Incredible to see a MAJOR American group at a small music venue in the heart of downtown Amsterdam. Located in Light Square in the middle of many of the greatest restaurants in Amsterdam... Go to Castille for steak before a show. One of the best two steak houses in Amsterdam.
