Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow down your options by weekly suggesting the events where you can meet, dance and drink with Amsterdam’s finest crowds.
De Bovenkamer @ Radion
Spirits will be lifted over at Radion! Honey Dijon, L’Atelier and Lupe are invited to bring some heat to the decks. The walls and ceiling of the Bovenkamer send off an intimate vibe straight to and through you. Combine this with the soulfulness of L’Atelier, Honey Dijon’s Chicago and New York influences and Lupe’s musical love for our club scene and you get a Friday night where are a hangover is assured, and certainly worth it.
LAB x Strangelove: Open @ Strangelove Amsterdam
Something quite special right here. Film theater and cultural hotbed LAB was under construction for a while, but has been revamped and warmly welcomes you to their grande opening, in their new restaurant Strangelove this Friday. LAB brings together creatives from different disciplines, like painting artists, media art specialists and film producers, and offers them an exhibition place for their creative crafts. Speaking of creative crafts, at the opening, the music be provided by Umoja, Woody and Radio Noet-Noet.
So if you’re ever out of ideas for a date, keep LAB and Strangelove in the back of your mind, as you can grab a bite at Strangelove before or after an unconventional documentary or animated motion pictures that go beyond the scope of the ordinary cinemas.
Saturday: Mehmet Aslan and more @ Claire
Claire takes you beyond our borders and invites you for a night of Arabic-infused dance, with Mehmet Aslan as headliner. The Swiss-born Turk blends electronics beats with the classic folk music from his roots, which is appropriately known as hamam house. Definitely check out the refreshing mix below. It’s quite a unique sound. He is supported by Bufiman and Moody Mehran.
Sharing is caring!
