With its expansive decked terrace overlooking one of Amsterdam's more modern canals, Edel is the perfect spot to kick back in the sunshine after a hard day's cycling. The remarkable building is a former jewellery workshop and the venue, nestled behind a flower stand, is something of a hidden gem in itself.

De Zotte
An encyclopaedic Belgian beer cafe situated in a quiet cobbled street behind the city's (in)famous Melkweg music venue, De Zotte is the perfect cosy hidey-hole for some post-gig analysis. Try a Kwak beer from Derndermonde in East Flanders: the glass, with its bulbous, hour-glass shape and wooden stand, is a showstopper in itself.

This popular Red Light District gay bar is straight-friendly, with lashings of camp fun and very little pretension. DJs spin frequently from a lofty cupboard and cocktail specials are often on offer. If you're in the mood for food, the burgers here are named after popular local drag queens.

Address: 51 Warmoesstraat | Telephone: 020 421 5151 |

Pacific Parc
Restaurant by day and evening, this buzzing, warehouse-style venue on the border of the city's Westerpark cultural hub welcomes up-and-coming bands on weekend nights. As long as you don't mind jostling enthusiastically for the bar staff's attentions, this is a great place to get to know Amsterdam's muso crowd.

Address: 23 Polonceaukade | Telephone: 020 488 7778 |
