    It's the nightlife district of Amsterdam - minus the red light sex appeal. Less shady, more downtown feel - it's the hoppin', happenin' place to be for bars, clubs, restaurants, and shopping.

    cool square, close to the museum quarter and vondelpark. Full of restaurants and coffee shops. You must sit in a restaurant and relax watching everybody walking and hanging out.

    Great plaza to centralize a night out on the town. Much like a miniature version of the Red Light District, minus the prostitution, Leidseplein is a lot of fun, safe and centrally located.

    Sweet little square with a kiddy ice rink in winter. Surrounded by nice looking pubs and a pancake house.

    Whenever I visit Amsterdam I can guarantee by the end of the night I will be in one of the little bars off Leidseplein! From the outside they look a little naff, and nothing more than a narrow bar but the atmosphere inside is always fab! Great place to go for a casual after dinner drink which will inevitably turn into dancing!

    Leideplein is a very important square in the heart of Amsterdam's entertainment district. If you visit the Hard Rock Cafe, you're in Leideplein.

    A bit the center of attraction for people going out. The square is packed with restaurants and place to enjoy music or show in the evening. Coming there is quite easy as at least 3 or 4 line of trams pass by the place. If you don't know what to do one evening in Amsterdam, just go there and you'll find something to enjoy.

    Thursday, Friday or Saturday night you should take a drink at the Leidseplein. Leidseplein is a busy square at the southern end of Amsterdam's central canal ring. At this square, there are plenty of interesting sights and entertaining services and street performance are present most of the time.

    The Leidseplein as a square wouldn't go there, but the backstreets are good from some nightlife adventures.

    Square that is surrounded by restaurants, theaters and shops. A great meeting place and hub for several tram and bus lines.

    Square surrounding the canals. There are places to eat, drink and smoke. Also, it's the placement for Paradiso club, a worldwide known club :D

    Leidseplein is a great area, and especially during Christmas. They set up a bunch of booths, a bar, and even an ice skating rink. Really fun if you don't mind the cold. Make sure to bring a coat for the cold and a good appetite for the fabulous food because the sausage and beer that's available is wonderful.

    Nice large square in town that serves as a great landmark, source of people-watching, transportation center, and performance space for many buskers.

    This bustling square has loads of pavement bars and cafes to sit outside and watch the world go by! There's shops galore in the surrounding streets and as many restaurants to choose from...you lose count! A must if you're in Amsterdam
