The mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard van der Laan, has chosen 25 buildings and 15 designated areas in Amsterdam for  the possibility of a 24-hour policy. These venues are spread over six districts in our beautiful city!


Hospitality Vision Amsterdam 2011-2014

Late last year the Hospitality Vision 2011-2014 was set out in the city council.
A number of parties in the city council wanted to see a wider variety of  nightlife  in Amsterdam, which was also the opinion of the former Night Mayor of Amsterdam, DJ Isis.
By research she noticed that young people are satisfied with the entertainment in the city, but there is a demand on places  with flexible and extended openings hours.
Mayor Van der Laan has therefore given the opportunity to a maximum of 10 places in the city, to try out their innovative hospitality concepts, with a 24-hour policy. Of these 10 places, a maximum of 3 clubs will be chosen.
What is 24-hour hospitality?
24-hours hospitality industry can be anything, as long as it’s an addition to the environment. In foreign cities, there are numerous examples of hospitality 24 hours. This could be a coffee shop with bookshop where you can study, a 24-hour gym, a restaurant, a game center, or a night shop. Of course there is also room for art or other cultural initiatives.
So 24-hours hospitality means much more than clubs, where mainly dance music is programmed. Therefor only 3 clubs will be chosen, out of the 10  possible places.

The list of possible areas are:

  1. Centre – Brug 485 De Ruyterkade
  2. Westpoort/OGA
  3. New West – sports park Eendracht
  4. New West – Lutkemeerpolder
  5. South – Industrial area Schinkel
  6. Zuidas – project 15×15
  7. Overamstel I
  8. Amstel III
  9. East – Club Trouw Wibautstraat
  10. East – Cruquiusweggebied
  11. North – Gembo terrain
  12. North – De Overkant
  13. North – Overhoeks Tolhuistuin
  14. North – NDSM Lasloods
  15. North – NDSM drijvend infocentrum
A final decision on this list is expected in Q3 2012. Any updates can be found on TrueAmsterdam.com.
