The thing I like the most about Amsterdam is that there is no sacrum, no profanum. One of the most reviewed striptease clubs La Vie en Proost (https://www.lavieenproost.nl/) is situated in the very centre of de Wallen, Amsterdam’s red light district. You can find this renowned striptease joint on Bethlehemsteeg 23, nearby the Oude Kerk, one of the oldest churches in the world and the oldest building in Amsterdam.
There’s an entrance fee of €5 (to the strip club, not the church), girls stripping and dancing on the bar, topless waitresses, affordable booze and €10 lap dances, what is there not to like? The Sex Palace is also a cool striptease joint with great reviews, also nearby on Oudezijds Achterburgwal 84. It’s also the only remaining peep show in Amsterdam.
Another interesting segment with the erotic club scene are swinger clubs, in Dutch often referred to as “parenclubs”. While in the old days usually only couples were allowed access to such clubs, nowadays their entrance policy is more flexible and also single men are allowed. One of the most renowned swinger clubs is Fata Morgana (http://www.fata-morgana.nl/). This luxurious venue does not fall short of pretentions and labels itself as Europe’s most trendy erotic lifestyle club. Fata Morgana is situated on Rijksweg 15 in Muiden, a town which is a 15 minutes drive away from Amsterdam city centre.
Brothels in the Netherland are legal, provided they are registered and operate under a license of the local authorities. In the Netherlands and also Belgium brothels with a semi-club ambiance go under the more chic name “private house”. Amsterdam offers an interesting set of private houses and sex clubs popular with locals as well as many foreigners visiting the Dutch capital. Park 118 (https://www.privehuis118amsterdam.nl/), located at Sarphatipark 118, is one of the landmarks in the local erotic scene. Some of the ladies in this Amsterdam sex club have also BDSM services on the menu starting at €100 per hour.
