Melkweg stands for pop culture in the most broad of senses. Each year, hundreds of concerts, club nights, films and music films, theatre performances, expositions and multidisciplinary events together attract more than 400,000 visitors. The venue is located in the only surviving factory building on the Amsterdam canal ring, a former sugar and, later, milk factory. This historical building houses two concert halls, a cinema, a theatre, and an exposition space, which each can be used separately or combined together. In the Melkweg, established names can be seen alongside new talent and emerging styles get the chance to reach a broader audience. The diversity of its programming and visitors, together with its different spaces and special location, have for years made the Melkweg a unique place.

Wasn't satisfied due to the fact that I had to pay additionally for membership of the club in order to enter to the concert. I already payed for the ticket before, so it was pretty unpleasant thing. In overall, the club itself is okay, but...More

This place is a little out of central Amsterdam but worth a visit, it is open late and usually has some great performances. The drinks however are expensive and be warned Friday nights have a lot of under 18s

Melkweg is certainly the best venue in the Dam. Excellent staff, great sound and they have the best beer in town: Jupiler!

When I was there for dub fx I didn't see anything like that bro, however on the way through town you'll be beating reputable purveyors off with a stick ;) Don't worry, just buy a couple of bits before you go in

Encore is the best night on Fridays and Saturdays. Plus I checked their website it doesn't seem to show.
