What we're about

Based in Amsterdam, we are the largest and coolest international community in the Netherlands. We’re a social club for Amsterdam expats with an international membership that includes both recently relocated expats and long-term residents. Our doors are open to everyone. Whether you are an expat, a Dutch who's internationally oriented, or simply a traveller passing through, you're all welcome to join our growing multicultural family.

On a weekly basis, we host a range of networking and social events at various locations in the city, where expats and locals can gather to meet interesting people, create valuable connections and foster new friendships. Our events are always conducted in a friendly and welcoming environment.

We meet up regularly to: drink & mingle at various Amsterdam hotspots, explore the city's good food with social dining, watch comedy shows and plays, go clubbing and dancing, watch and play games and sports, go on special trips and rides... and other authentic Amsterdam experiences.

🎼 Friday Afterwork Drinks with Music Bingo 🎼

ClinkNOORD

We're reviving Music Bingo! So join us this Friday for a few rounds. Make new friends, challenge yourself and win a prize!

Back when we were in partial lockdown, we ran a few successful rounds of socially-distanced Music Bingo. We're bringing this fun game back for a while just to add some variety to our usual events.

This is how the night will go:

☺︎ The first half an hour is for everyone get to know one another. We have a special game to make it extra fun to mingle!
☺︎ This will be followed by 2-3 rounds of Bingo. You'll receive a fresh bingo card before each round.
☺︎ When you hear a song that’s on your card mark it off
☺︎ First one to get a line of songs wins a prize.
☺︎ If you come a bit later, no problem. You can join the next Bingo round.
☺︎ Afterwards, you're welcome to stay for more drinks and bites.

Food and drinks will be served all night. As usual, I'll be there about an hour earlier to grab some dinner. Come before 7 PM to enjoy Happy Hour deals at around 20% off. Come before 8, our members get 10% off.
