It seemed like every African and Afro-European was in this spot. It was definitely on! If you go to Amsterdam, stand in the Newmarkt square section in the Red Light District and wait for an unmarked cab. When they see a Black person standing there, they will stop for you. Then, ask them to take you to Grand Café, (in English! Yes, they speak English AND Dutch, so chill)and you will be in one of the hottest underground nightspots in town. This isn’t in the tour guides, people. And don’t bother getting into a regular cab, because they will take you to the popular tourist-y Grand Café that is in all the guidebooks. They play a mixture of the hottest R&B, rap, and African pop and hip hop. You can’t help but move. I had a blast!
