Northern Soul club nights in soulful Amsterdam
Welcome to soul city Amsterdam! Looking to find a Northern Soul club night in Amsterdam that coincides with your visit? Check out our up-to-date listing of soul nights and events!
Once upon a time Northern Soul fans struggled to find any soul club nights at all in Amsterdam. Other nights had existed before, but they were either irregular or not really dedicated to Northern Soul. However, that changed in 2008 with the launch of the city's first regular monthly Northern Soul night - the Amsterdam Soul Club.
Although the Amsterdam Soul Club's monthly soul nights came to an end in June 2015, the challenge to keep Northern Soul alive in Amsterdam was taken up by four dedicated soul fans: Pete45 and Loma Russ (Pete45 was resident DJ at the Amsterdam Soul Club & Loma Russ was a frequent guest DJ there), and Jan and Helen.
They went on to provide lost soulies with not one but two new monthly events. Welcome to the scene the small but mighty Northern Soul Amsterdam (an OVO soul night run by Pete45 & Loma Russ and held at Café Batavia) and Amsterdam's Soulful Sunday (run by Jan and Helen & now called Amsterdam Soulful).

At the same time, the Amsterdam Soul Club continues to organise occasional Northern Soul events catering for the P&O Soul Cruises that cross the North Sea from Hull to Holland three or four times a year. Taken together, all these soul nights and events means Amsterdam is a soulful city!
So if you're looking for a short break in soul city Amsterdam, here's a listing of regular Northern Soul club nights and events to help you with your planning. Also, if you're looking for somewhere to stay in Amsterdam, check out Trip Advisor, B&Bs in Amsterdam and HomeAway.
