Came here as part of a bigger group of colleagues/friends. Venue and music were alright but not the most impressive thing I have ever seen. The charges they demanded after having paid around EUR 16 at the entrance were -in my opinion- just not adequate though. We came in the end of Jan/early Feb and it was cold because, well,... More

They force me to leave my jacket outside (for money of course), and they were pushing me out, with force and without and refund when i put my hat on... More

I am giving it a 1 star rating because the staff of the place put me right off! they were extremely rude, not caring at all. I even felt discriminated because I was a tourist. Very poor hospitality is propagated at the club escape.! I must say though the venue and the DJ's that were playing that night were exceptional.... More

We booked a VIP table, service was great from the moment we arrived and the waiter was very attentive. Excellent value for money. The music was good and a great atmosphere in the club. Only disappointment was the shared toilets as the attendant kept asking us for 50c each time which was annoying trying to find change every time, despite... More

Was not a cheap night but was fun and we were well looked after in the VIP. Entrance took a while with the security it felt more like an airport! But once inside it was good.

I was in "Escape" Night club only once. Face control and checking was OK! After you have to pay to leave your clothes, and it's mandatory (1.50 Euro for each piece) unacceptable..! If you have hat and jacket, then you have to pay 3 Euros :) First time in my life I saw night club in Amsterdam where you have... More

Visited while in Amsterdam with my partner last weekend, paid 16 euros each in which I believe to be quite a lot considering it wasn't a particular night and no celebrity DJ's ect were playing. Had to leave our coats in cloakroom (no choice about that we wasn't allowed through to club with them) also had to pay 1.50 euros... More

Loved this place. It's huge with good crowd. Nice music. The only thing I don't like about the place is that they take money for everything and don't accept cards. You have to pay entry..then pay to keep your jackets with them as they don't allow you to wear jackets in the club. They even take money if you want... More

Very nice place to sit after dinner, friendly service and when it's warm enough also fine to sit outside watching people pass by on Rembrandt Square.

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighbourhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
