Big club with younger crowd: Club NYX
NYX is a 3-floor gay dance club on Reguliersdwarstsraat. In case you are wondering, NYX was a Greek goddess and daughter of Chaos who would fly through the sky bringing darkness behind her – rather appropriate for a nightclub.
Each floor offers a different style of music, and the focus is very much on a fun night out with as little pretension as possible. Check NYX’s website for details of upcoming parties.
weekday: Thu 23:00 – 04:00
weekend: 23:00 – 05:00 / 04:00

One of the most popular gay cruise clubs in Amsterdam. Facilities at Church include a large bar, dance floor (with talented live DJ’s many nights of the week), private cabins, dark rooms and showers.
