Shelter – Techno music underground

When going out in Amsterdam, a lot of tourists know about the famous Leidseplein or Rembrandtplein. These places are nice to go out at, but when you’re not that much into commercial music, maybe those two squares won’t be the best for you. When I go out, I like to listen to techno music or deephouse.

Luckily in Amsterdam there are multiple clubs where you can find this kind of music. Shelter is one of those places. The club is located in the northern part of the city. Yes, this means you’ll have to take the ferry to get there. But don’t worry, it’s just across the water so it’s very easy to reach by foot! The fun thing about Shelter is that it’s (surprise, surprise) in a basement, right underneath the A’dam tower.

When I was there for the first time, I noticed how everything is super organised. To me this is a really important part of a club, because it makes the evening so much more relaxed. Also the sound system inside is really good! And don’t worry you won’t have enough time to party: the club is one of the few places in Amsterdam that has a 24-hours license. Yes, this means you can dance literally all-night long. The only downside in my opinion is the availability of food…they don’t have much. You can get bananas and other little snacks, but nothing really filling. So make sure you’ve eaten a good meal before you go there!
