We all have our own unique way of enjoying a night out, be it taking in some live music, casually sipping on a craft beer at a quirky pub or grooving till dawn, and luckily for you Amsterdam caters to everybody’s taste.

Every neighborhood of the city has its own unique vibe and depending on what you’re after.

From the trendy Jordaan district where you can mingle in the traditional bars (bruin cafés) to East Amsterdam where hipsters abound, sip your way around craft breweries and tiny tasting rooms serving Jenver – the local gin.

Having a host by your side will enable you to take in the quirkiest cocktail bars that only locals know about, hole-in-the-wall tasting rooms, electric clubs and classic pavement cafés. There’s never a dull moment here.

Thirst Quenching Fun With A Local

We were lucky enough to have Anna as our Host. She is great! She is sophisticated, informed, knowledgeable and personable. We discussed our preferences briefly in the lobby of our hotel. We saw Anna's face light up with excitement and she said "I know just the places to go!". We were off on foot. During the walk to each bar and at each bar we battered poor Anna with questions (mostly tourist questions she probably heard a 1,000 times over), but she was un-phased by them, answered them and continued to engage us in interesting and informed conversation. We laughed, drank beer and lost track of time. We were able to sit in every bar we frequented and stayed longer at some than others. We did have plans to try a giant roof swing at the end of the night but due to inclement weather and time, we could not work it into our plans. The tour, host, and establishments were wonderful. If you are lucky enough to have Anna as your host, you will not be disappointed! Enjoy the beautiful city nightlife as locals and have one of the best Hosts show them to you - Anna. Thanks, City Unscripted and Anna! Shawn, Corinne, Declan & Devlin

Amsterdam Explained

Anna showed me around and always had something interesting to say about the quarter or the place or the event or the thing we happened to see. I strongly recommend her as a guide!

Our host was charming and attentive. The pace of the tour was just right and we got to see places we would not have found on our own. Well worth the experience!

Informational and engaging!

Our tour with Anna was perfect! She contacted us prior to our visit and she had a great plan prepared. As our day unfolded, we found that our interests changed and she created paths and conversations to follow our new ideas! She is a knowledgeable and engaging guide!
