The successor to the much-missed Trouw is housed in a disused school in the city's West district
It's been a full year since much-loved
Amsterdam club Trouw closed its doors after one final 35-hour party
headlined by Seth Troxler. And now the club's owners, Post BS CV,
have finally announced an opening date for Trouw's successor, De
It was announced back in October that
the new club would be housed in a disused former school on Jan van
Breemenstraat, in the West district of the city. Originally, they
were hoping to open before the end of the year, but they just missed
that target, and De School (bet they were up all night thinking up
that name!) will now open its doors on 3 January.
De School has a 24-hour licence, though
most nights will end at 5am, say the organisers, "or 10am on very
good nights". But the plan is to develop a space that's in use
around the clock, and to that end, the site will also be home to a restaurant
and bar as well as the club itself, which have been named Restaurant
DS and Bar DS (there they go with those names again!)
De School has a capacity of 500 and,
like Trouw before it, is being granted only a temporary five-year
licence. The emphasis will be on resident DJs curating their own
line-ups – you can see the line-up for January and February here.
The line-up for the opening night itself remains a secret, but
tickets went on sale on Thursday.
