Fan of Hip Hop? Check out these bars and clubs for the best beats in Amsterdam.

Hip Hop has been a popular genre in Amsterdam since its inception in the 1970s and, whilst there are few dedicated hip hop clubs in Amsterdam, a number of the city’s most famous and best-loved venues have weekly nights allocated to it.

If you’re visiting Amsterdam and looking to head out to enjoy this type of music, you’re spoiled for choice in the city centre. In this blog, we take you through some of the city’s best Amsterdam hip hop club nights.


Melkweg is one of Leidseplein’s best-known clubs and its weekly ‘Encore’ club night presents some of the city’s biggest hip hop and R&B names. This impressive club attracts up to 1500 people week in, week out for this night and for hip hop fans is a highlight of the Amsterdam music scene.


A short walk across the Leidseplein square and you’ll find another Amsterdam nightlife mecca – Paradiso. Check out their event agenda and you’ll be under no illusion about how seriously this venue takes its hip-hop nights – there’s a whole section dedicated to this genre! As well as the classics, Paradiso loves to explore everything that’s new in the world of Hip Hop and has deservedly gained a reputation as a place to be in the city centre! Situated in an historic church building, Paradiso is an Amsterdam icon and a place that has cemented a solid name for itself with locals and visitors alike.


For those who are looking for hip hop on a Thursday, look no further than Rembrandtplein’s Air – DondAIRdag is this Amsterdam nightlife area’s best-known midweek hip hop night. In this city that never sleeps, Thursday really is the new Friday and Air is at the heart of it. With multiple dance floors and bars and non-stop hip hop, this is the place to come for anyone who shares an obsession with urban music.


Café De Duivel (meaning Devil in Dutch) is one of the city centre’s more rough-and-ready bars and doesn’t exactly look much from the outside but don’t be fooled – this cafe has played hip hop seven days a week for decades and is extremely popular with local fans of the genre. Just around the corner from Rembrandtplein, and well worth checking out, Café De Duivel is the perfect place to enjoy classic favourites in a smaller, more intimate and more authentic setting. Big hip hop names queue up to play at this renowned little venue and for good reason!


If you’re wanting to enjoy hip hop, R&B and much more whilst meeting plenty of fellow travellers, why not check out the Leidseplein Pub Crawl!
