|About these ratings|
The center of Amsterdam's entertainment scene, you'll find nightclubs, movie theaters, concert venues, casinos and of course some coffee shops in this neighborhood located southwest of the city center. For the performing arts, the Melkweg (Milky Way) concert hall and the Stadsschouwburg city theater are of particular note.
Leidseplein is the place to be, if you enjoy mixing with the masses. If crowds aren't your thing, you should steer clear of this area — definitely don't book a hotel or hostel here — or maybe head to the nearby Vondelpark instead. Travelers were also pleasantly surprised by the quantity and variety of restaurants huddled in the neighborhood.
