The Leidseplein: the most popular entertainment and nightlife district in the Netherlands, located in the bustling centre of Amsterdam.
The Leidseplein, famous for its many terraces, is the heart of the Leidsebuurt nightlife district, home to some 150 bars, clubs, restaurants and theatres.
The Leidsebuurt is characterised by its bazaar-like arrangement: narrow streets with a dizzying array of cafés, bars, clubs and restaurants.

In the Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen, where the famous City cinema is located, you will find several modern establishments frequented by both major and minor Dutch celebrities.
Cultural sights aplenty in the area, with the Stadsschouwburg, the DeLaMar theater and De Balie attracting throngs.
Pop culture is also well-represented, with the ever-popular Melkweg and Paradiso concert venues.
Dance-lovers can dance to their hearts content in the many clubs playing a variety of music genres, from disco to Latin vibes and everything in between.

There is also a great variety of restaurants, offering cuisine from all over the world. From traditional Dutch to Nepalese, from South American to Japanese, there’s something for everyone’s taste.
In many restaurants, theatre enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a pre-theatre menu, to make for a night to never forget.

And after the theatre show, you will be able to enjoy a bite and a drink before heading home.

The area is readily accessible with public transport.

Whether it’s shopping in the Leidsestraat, the most famous shopping boulevard in the Netherlands, having a cup of coffee on one of the many terraces, enjoying an authentic dish in a restaurant or simply having a day out in Amsterdam, you will surely be wanting to come back again to Amsterdam’s bustling centre: the Leidseplein.
