History of ClubNL

Over seven years ago, a group of friends from the Netherlands visited the United States, where they first experienced the locally emerging lounge scene. 
At the time, lounging in trendy lobbies was already a hype within the party-scene of New York, and the would-be founders of Club NL were so excited about this new concept, that they decided to introduce it back home in the Netherlands.


And so Club NL was born. 

By opening the first true Dutch lounge club, Club NL smartly responded to the growing need for a classy and stylish club where the more mature visitor would also feel at home. It quickly became a huge success.


In the years following, and in part thanks to these pioneers, a true ‘lounge-hype’ swept the Netherlands, and numerous lounge bars were started throughout the country. After four successful years however, Club NL decided to change its course and develop into a sexy, stylish house club, focusing on a sophisticated and complete nightclub experience.


Nowadays Club NL is a well-known and highly regarded phenomenon in Amsterdam that caters to a broad range of easy going, style-conscious people. It has entertained numerous international celebrities the likes of Mick Jagger, Naomi Campbell, P. Diddy and many more. Club NL is also a favorite haunt of many well known Dutch soccer players.


The founders of Club NL have since their initial success developed concepts for well renowned clubs like ‘the Republiek’ in Bloemendaal and ‘Club 13’ in Barcelona. These clubs are now celebrated for their style and originality within the international club scene.


ClubNL Club NL is a uniquely stylish nightclub located in the heart of Amsterdam. With its excellent vibe and easy-going staff it serves as the perfect drinking and dancing joint to spend your nights out.
