Club Air

Club Air, you will recognise this club by the rows of people in front of the entrance and is probably one of the most beautiful clubs in Amsterdam. With its multiple floors in one room and many lights, it makes for a club with famous status. The club has five bars and normal club prices. At the entrance, you buy a card (kind of a credit card), which you use to pay for everything at Air the whole evening, e.g. lockers, drinks etc. Air offers club nights full of techno and electric music, but also full of hip hop, RnB, and ‘bad’ music nights. Curious about what kind of music you can dance to in club Air soon? Take a look at their site and check out their upcoming programme!
