Lively spacious club, where you can get your vibe on as the music is pumping, good atmosphere, people just enjoying the hip hop and other music flavours. Saturday I’d hip hop night. Lots of dus on rotation. Good age spread here......

Several (three I guess) stages, lot of bars and great atmosphere. The place in Amsterdam for live club gigs and also a home for the Rebellion Amsterdam festival.
