The nightlife in Amsterdam is a lot safer than many foreigners believe it to be.

Brown Café

The Dutch are known for the word “gezellig”. It’s difficult to translate this into English but the best description would be cozy and homey, relaxed feeling of being with people. That is why a lot of people are also going to a Brown Café (“Bruine kroeg”) on a night out.
