Korte Leidsedwarsstraat 115, 1017 PX Amsterdam, Netherlands
Official home of the Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest, on the Museumplein. A fabulous concert hall well-known for excellent acoustics and free lunch-time concerts for Amsterdammers. I have enjoyed several wonderful concerts there, while basking in the glow of the masters who have played in this venerable hall. The orchestra also holds an occasional concert outdoors on the Museumplein, which has recently been completely renovated.
A disco club and a venue for meetings and discussions of gay-sexuality and parties. The discussions range from legal issues to coming-out. An extensive schedule of events, click on their link if you want more info. (In Dutch and English.)
Old gasworks buildings converted into shops, eateries, bars, workshops, plus park & festivals.
Formerly the Stock Exchange, now a performance hall and exhibition space of note for it’s Amsterdam School architecture, since it was designed by the style’s founder, Hendrik Petrus Berlage (1856- 1934). Located right on the Damrak between Central Station and the Dam Square, you can’t miss it’s beautiful clock tower.
