Tips and Tricks for Your Weekend

Where to eat in Amsterdam

There are two main elements to your weekend. Lots of booze, and great food to keep your mates going through the weekend!

We always recommend pre booking your meals alongside your package to ensure entry for your group, as often finding tables over 6-8 people can be difficult, which is why we can include a Traditional Dutch Meal, a post activity Barbecue or even Wine and Cheese!

For those meals on the go, we have included a few recommendations below!

Cocos Outback

A popular group choice in the heart of Amsterdam, Cocos Outback is the go to for a night of cocktails, craft beer, great food and all night clubbing! More than just an Aussie themed back, they offer tons to keep your mates entertained, from karaoke to pool and darts.


Perfect for on the go snacks or a late night feast on the way back to your hotel, Febo is known across Amsterdam for serving their warm on-the-go food from vending machines across the city centre! Now, that's the definition of fast food.

Amsterdam Weather

Whilst Amsterdam is not particularly known for its amazing weather, it does make a great all year round party destination!

With a similar weather pattern to the UK, the best months to head to the city are between June and August if the sunshine is what you are after - just remember this is also peak tourist season.

Spring and Autumn months are going to be the best if you want to avoid the rain of Winter and the bustle of tourists that flock here every Summer and price increases that go with it. In our opinion, the Spring tulips and Autumn cosy nights make for a much better backdrop! With highs of between 15 and 20, your group can still get out and about for plenty of birthday activities in Amsterdam!


Is an Amsterdam birthday good?

Yes! Whether you are looking for a wild weekend or a laid back city break, Dam makes for the ultimate birthday destination! Not only are there tons of group friendly Amsterdam birthday activities, including our bestselling Beer Bike and Guided Bar Crawls, but a whole host of Dutch history and culture to absorb during your visit!
