    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.

  • Frederique M.

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

  • Rene P.

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

    Rene Pot · April 29
  • Melanie R.

    Great convert venue, small and cosy, you almost feel as though you are sat in The stage. Good acustics and free Wi-Fi!get a spot upstairs for a verter view!

    Really cool place

    Natasha Nikolic · February 16
  • Christian P.

    Great venue for concerts and techno parties. Sugar factory is just across the street if you fancy more Latino tunes. Leidseplein is crawling distance!

    Christian Peper · February 8

  • Alejandra R.

    Diversity within the agenda. I behold a special place in my heart for this great venue. Supports newish artists. Only tip: work on the lighting on the stage, don't overuse it.

  • Jerry K.

    A great place to see international and national bands and acts live. The last couple of years the program got a bit cheesy. But still check the line up or you will miss that one great show!

    Nice club, but small.

    Make sure you take €4 for the "membership" to get in even though you already have a concert ticket.

    De Melkweg – or Milky Way – has a long reputation as a live venue and will never let you down. A must-see on your night out in Amsterdam!

    MTV · November 6, 2013
  • Felipe

    Is not my favourite venue in Amsterdam for a concert (the acoustic is pretty awful) but you can see great artist in here.

    Felipe · August 25, 2013
  • roel v.

    Best concert hall

    roel van twist · May 30, 2013
  • Chantal

    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.

    Chantal · May 20, 2013
  • Maria B.

    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)

    Maria Bakhtina · April 26, 2013
  • Hans G.

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

    Hans Gerwitz · April 17, 2013
  • Malin B.

    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!

    Malin Bodin · March 31, 2013
  • Harriet S.

    Great concert of Jonathan Jerimia! Saw Jim last year in Paradiso and this time even better and the man himself: so relaxed! Perfect performance!

    Don't talk during gigs, it's bloody annoying!

    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
