Jimmy Woo

Sure, Amsterdam is a huge cultural hub, but let’s not forget that the Dutch city is also a perfect place to party. And one of the best spots to do so is Jimmy Woo, the elegant nightclub with a quirky Asian-themed twist. Black couches, circular booths, and bright purple lights line the upstairs level, giving guests a peak into the imaginary “Mr. Woo’s” home. Meanwhile, sheer curtains divide a more exclusive section, appropriately set upon a lit-up pedestal. Throughout the night, the club’s chic, elegant, and international clientele can be seen on the upstairs level chatting over seemingly limitless bottles. But after 1am, the party really gets started, as Leidseplein’s stylish set slowly slinks downstairs to dance beneath the alluring special effects of 12,000 lightbulbs. While many associate Amsterdam’s nightlife with house and techno, Jimmy Woo is all about a more funky playlist full of bumping bass. It’s no wonder the place has been considered one of the most elite in all of the Dam.

A Weekend in Amsterdam

As I finished my exams and headed to Charles de Gaulle airport to depart on a week long break from school and work, it dawned on me that Paris’ insane accessibility to the rest of Europe meant I’d be doing a lot of traveling. And a lot of traveling means a lot of content to share. No, this isn’t suddenly becoming a travel blog, but why neglect the immense beauty of the world?

First on my list of places to experience was Amsterdam, a place I’ve been to a few times before (and will probably return to in the near future). From the stunning pieces in the Van Gogh museum to the ubiquitous canals, the Dutch city has an undeniable charm. While the language itself poses a bit of a challenge, the magical appeal of Amsterdam makes up for all of that. In just two short days, I was reminded of its refreshing atmosphere amongst friends and the many strangers who flock to the bicycle-heavy streets. Take a look at my weekend in Amsterdam!
