Melkweg isn’t so much a club as it is an institution in the Amsterdam nightlife scene. This former milk factory is now home to two clubs, one hall called the Oude Zaal for smaller shows and the Max which can accommodate 1,500 people, as well as a gallery, café, theatre, a tearoom and a cinema. It’s an obligatory stop for up-and-coming bands on European tours and also hosts music and film festivals. Although its speciality is live music, it also hosts club nights with DJs in its smaller hall. For upcoming events visit its website or just drop by its box office for information and tickets.
