Lijnbaansgracht 234 (531 81 81).
The Melkweg is mainly a live music venue, but during weekends it also hosts a variety of dance events. Some nights the venue is rented out; check the flyers section. In contrast to other clubs the Melkweg has a keen eye for 'world music' trends. Mixed and relatively young audience.

Rembrandtplein 17 (521 83 33).
Smallish club on rowdy Rembrandtplein, with DJ's and live acts. Pretty laid-back atmosphere and staff with matching attitude, and a really good sound system. Due to its size the club might heat up a little during the course of the night, so plan ahead!
Open Wed-Sun 11pm-4:30am/5:45am.

Lijnbaansgracht 238 (626 50 06).
This 'night-theatre' close to Leidseplein sports a busy program with music, DJ's, poetry and performance. Sugar Factory usually stages two shows per evening, the early show being a stage performance, and the late show home to several popular dance nights. Relaxed and easy-going atmosphere, moderate prices for drink.
Open daily except Tue 9pm-4am/5am.

Wibautstraat 131 (463 77 88).
Club-cum-restaurant Trouw houses in the former printing works of a major Dutch newspaper, and this shows - the club occupies all of 2000 m2 of pretty bare industrial space. Throw in a large and excellent soundsystem and there you have the Trouw no-frills club approach. Progressive electronic sounds are the main fare here. The restaurant serves up international streetfood, and is open until 2am on Saturday nights, which is pretty amazing by Amsterdam standards!
Club open Fri-Sat 10pm-5am. Restaurant open Tue-Fri 18:30pm-11pm, Sat 18:30pm-2am.
