Across the IJ River, close to historic city center, you will find Shelter Club, a vast subterranean nightclub and exhibition space. Located in a basement of the landmark A'DAM Tower, on the Amsterdam's northern waterfront, this club became one of the most popular places for quality dance music. Shelter, as well as its name tells, is a place which, perhaps, doesn’t have an elegant internal, but it is an empty space, a construction made of concrete, like abandoned industrial places converted into clubs, especially present in Berlin , therefore, similar to Berlin clubs, famous for their industrial, concrete / iron characteristics. In the last decade, in European countries became very popular the new way of arrangement of nightclubs. While most of European clubs, (speaking about big discotheques), from the ‘60s until today, is characterized by elegant and high-level arranged interior, during last 10 or 15 years, were open many new clubs, converted from old, abandoned empty spaces - ex factories or big halls and shelters - so-called clubs for hipsters, constructions made of concrete, simply and a bit gray and ugly, but where people can find a good sound, good music and professional arranged bar. Those clubs are perfect for people who prefer wearing casual, spending relax evenings, without strict dress code policy, complicated entrance policy and high prices . While the heart of Amsterdam is full of elegant and high-level clubs, where you can easily meet some celebrity, such as Rihanna or Boy George, Shelter Club is a real refresh, perfect for casual and relax people.
