Party hard – sleep easy in Amsterdam! A place for tourists you might think, in the middle of the Red Light district, but fact is that the Winston is pretty cool, it houses a hotel with cool artistically styled, inexpensive rooms, a bar and a club, called the Winston Kingdom.
The Winston Kingdom is a venue for live bands, poetry, dance nights and parties. The evening styles can be very diverse, ranging from punk to alternative, from live toasting MC’s to a simple Tiësto style dance night. As diverse as the style is, so is the audience, you can be sure that they are in a good mood. Usually it’s quite crowded, because next to the folks that are there especially for the event, there are lots of people just dropping by, that’s because the Winston is right in the center of Amsterdam’s nightlife.
Surprisingly the crowd can totally change during the night. You might be among alternative youngsters during the live gigs at the beginning of the night, and end up with people in their late twenties, early thirties at the dance night later on. Anyway it is a good place to party, check out their website for what’s going on when it’s your turn to visit the Winston.
As for the mentioned opening times: they do not announce closing times anymore – I mean, Amsterdam has its official closing time rules, but you might as well check it out when it’s late, and you are still looking for a party.
