    Very powerful club. Make sure you reach there nice and early to avoid disappointment. The techno tribe Tuesdays is the best one to attend.

    It was so nice place with awful music! The prices are high inside and I had to pay 20 euros as entrance fees!! If you like hip hop and R&P music, it's is not the right place

    Acoustic is ok, not the best but not bad at all, but as it's a small place, be aware that crowd talking can get annoying sometimes as the bar is too close from the stage.

    People will tell you Paradiso is better, but Melkweg has its dirty charm, like watching Oliver Twist. We saw John Grant, who shone like a beacon, revealing lots of beardy recesses filled with beer.

    Love the small concert hall. The big (‘the max’) isn't too suitable for tiny people I'm afraid. 😩

    In the "Oude zaal", make sure you're either in front or upstairs. It gets very hot underneeth the 2nd floor

    Come early when you go to a concert and make sure you are in front of the crowd. Otherwise you will hardly see a thing.

    The most boring place in Ansterdam, and if you want to smoke you can't go out with cocktail (strange rules for country where men piss in street and people can smoke marihuana legally)

    They should let you in for free considering what they charge for vodka.

    I didn't like this place too much. In one room it was only Hiphop, not the good one and in the other room there was a bad coverband playing. But they sell awesome chicken sandwiches!

    If you want an easygoing crowd, then Melkweg is the place for you, whether you see a band or not. That said, the ‘up-close and personal’ nature of the place makes any live show here worth seeing. Read more
