Jimmy Woo, Amsterdam

18 Korte Leidsedwarsstrat
Netherlands 1017 RC
Tel: 31 20 626 3150's insider take:

Jimmy Woo's has a capacity of 600, but there's still always a line out front. The look is out of Once Upon a Time in America: Nobuyoshi Araki photos, opium beds, and antique Chinese lamps punctuate the otherwise minimalist, multitiered space. The dance floor is pulsated by a sound system that won the prize for best in the Netherlands in 2005. Events vary nightly: DJs spin hip-hop at Thursday's Woo-haa party, and the weekends thump with house, electronica, and soul. If that's all too much, chill (sort of) at Suzy Wong, the plush red-walled cocktail bar across the street (45 Korte Leidsedwarsstrat, Southern Canal Belt; 31-20-626-6769).

Open Wednesdays through Mondays 10 pm to 3 am (Fridays and Saturdays open till 4 am)
