Centrally located, Melkweg is a cultural and arts centre open day and night offering live music, club nights, dance and theatre facilities as well as a café-restaurant and photo gallery. Despite this, the largest space is actually the 1000 capacity only 'The Max' where you can expect to see dance acts like Ladytron, Pendulum, Hot Chip in the near future. Clubbing wise, Klinch provides the brand name that has hosted Derrick Carter and Erol Alkan and welcomes recent Ibiza Voice podcasters Sebo K and Anja Schneider. Due to its multi-purpose function, Melkweg attracts a mixed young crowd, which varies depending on the particular event but is always friendly.
Tip: Melkweg is near Leidseplein, one of the busiest spots in the whole of Amsterdam, which, although a tourist hotspot, provides an endless supply of bars, restaurants and cafes.
