The Hague Nightlife, Netherlands

The Hague Nightlife – The Shopping Areas

You'll find that Hague nightlife is not half as buzzing as Amsterdam's Nightlife with its Red Light District or as Rotterdam’s. This is mostly due to the fact that The Hague has no university and therefore no students to keep the party going, but there are still plenty of things you can do in the city for entertainment. There are several cinemas in the city but The Hague has a special one, Europe’s first 360-degree IMAX cinema, Omniversum. This is definitely a must for anyone visiting The Hague, especially because of its uniqueness. Shopping is also at home in The Hague, so we recommend some specialized locations for the best buys. Start with the Maison de Bonneterie, which is located inside a refined glass dome built in 1911, and continue with De Passage, a covered shopping gallery that dates back to 1882. For the most sophisticated stores go on Denneweg and Noordeinde, the two parallel streets near the Binnenhof.

The Hague Nightlife – Eating out

Looking for a good meal with particular specificity? The Hague is the place where you’ll find all types of food for all types of tastes and cultures. The best tradition in the city is of course Indonesian and the places to go for Indonesian food are Garuda (historic place, waiters wear traditional costumes), Istana (minimalist décor, excellent food) and Djawa (considered one of the best places in town). You can also try Chinatown for the characteristic food and atmosphere or Dudok, a more sober place popular among politicians. For great sushi try Sakura, a very friendly place that can host quite a large crowd. The best ice cream can be found at Florencia.

The Hague Nightlife – The Beaches and the Clubs

There are quite a few clubs and pubs in The Hague, despite of the fact that the crowds are not usually that large. The biggest club in town is Asta, which is located in a former cinema theatre building and still retains its specificity. This club will keep the party going at weekends until early in the morning and it also tends to get busy during weekdays. The Paard van Troje is the best place for concerts and Club Sillies holds a pretty good atmosphere especially at weekends. If you’re looking for a hotter atmosphere in the summer months you should take a weekend trip to Scheveningen, in the northwestern part of the city, on the coast of the North Sea. This is a popular destination among young people and is known as the most popular beach in all Benelux, which is a major plus for The Hague nightlife.
