Start your hen do by taking the girls for a spot of shopping and a browse in the arty shops scattered around the city, making sure you visit Jordaan, one of the most scenic areas in Amsterdam and home to alternative Dutch bars and vintage shops.
A great fun way to get to know Amsterdam better is by taking your hens on a treasure hunt. You can make it as energetic or as relaxing as you wish, it’s all about having fun while exploring the city. If you would prefer something a little more relaxing then spend some quality time with the girls while having a spa and pamper treatment, leaving you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for the evening’s entertainment ahead.
Start your evening by choosing where you and your girls want to eat. Although with everything available to you, from American-style food or Italian and Thai restaurants, you are really spoilt for choice. Then for a great night out, head to the Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein squares in the city for cool bars and nightclubs.
If you want to do something completely different and enjoy an evening full of glitz, glamour and many laughs, then a fantastic night out awaits you at a cabaret show. Enjoy watching the talents of a variety of different performers from dancers and musicians to comedians and magicians, promising you a night of naughty, tongue-in-cheek and quite simply hilarious entertainment.
