Club 11

3-5 Oosterdokskade,


High atop the temporary HQ of the Stedelijk Museum, in the edgy eastern docklands, sits this anomaly of dining and entertainment: occupying a full floor of a vast warehouse building, it has the merest hint of décor (some cheery yellow-green paint here and there, long picnic tables). By day, it’s the museum canteen, serving up sandwiches, half pints of Leffe, and mint tea. But around 10 p.m., Thursday to Saturday, out go the tables and in roll the lighting and stage designers and Euro DJs. Soon after, the Beautiful People follow, ready to drink, dance, and admire the skyline until dawn from their 11th-floor vantage point.
