Beautiful, sloping architecture, cosy bars and canal-lined streets are all central to Amsterdam's enduring appeal. But once the sun goes down, the city comes into its own. Thanks to a progressive approach to nightlife, some of Amsterdam's best venues have 24-hour licenses, making it one of Europe's key spots for round-the-clock clubbing. It's also home to some of the most important dates in the electronic music calendar, including Dekmantel Festival and annual industry gathering Amsterdam Dance Event.
