Wat we doen

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.

EAST SIDE STORY – Saturday Night Drinks @ LOUIE LOUIE

"On that ship, I dream she there. I smell the rose in her hair." ... So goes the lyrics of the 60s song by The Kingsmen, its title which inspired the name of our next meetup venue, as we continue our journey towards the East of Amsterdam. Overlooking the Tropenmuseum and nestled between Oosterpark and Artis Zoo, this beautiful space was formerly a dance school before it became the former East of Eden cafe. After Louie Louie took over, the entire place was transformed into a place for dreams, from its iconic wall behind the bar, the aquarium with little sharks down to the fancy bar stools. It’s a favourite hotspot for Dutch young professionals. Tip: Do try its famous Sangria or treat yourself to some Churros for dessert from its Mexican-inspired menu. ✤ Great event for first-time attendees or returning veterans! ✤ South American fusion cuisine and good selection of drinks from the spacious bar ✤ Plus you get to hang out with the coolest expat community in Amsterdam ;-) [ OPTIONAL ] Join our whatsapp group by sending a message to [masked]. You must be a member of our meetup group or facebook group in order to join. Remember to state your member name and the event you’re interested in.

EAST SIDE STORY – Saturday Night Drinks @ BAR BOTANIQUE

There’s no better place to begin our foray into Amsterdam's multicultural East than within the green walls of Bar Botanique. Soak up the tropical greenery of this award-winning source of pride for the East! Situated adjacent to the popular Javastraat, Bar Botanique is only a little more than a year old. It has a nice back story, formerly housing a gym before it was converted to a local Dutch café – De Ponteneur – which had then gone on to serve as “the living room of the East" for the next 25 years. Every aspect of this sensational space makes for a spectacular sight, from the soothing colour scheme and the tropical plants, to the artful play that exists between the high ceilings, lighting and reflective elements. It’s no wonder Foodbloggers awarded it winner of this year's Best Design. ♣︎ Great event for first-time attendees or returning veterans! ♣︎ French-Mediterranean cuisine and good selection of drinks from the bar ♣︎ Plus you get to hang out with the coolest expat community in Amsterdam ;-) [ OPTIONAL ] Join our whatsapp group by sending a message to [masked]. State your meetup.com / facebook name and the event you’re interested in. You must be a member of meetup.com or our facebook group in order to join.

We Love Wednesdays @ Bar Bukowski

Bar Bukowski

Because Wednesday is the new Friday! Join us at one of our favourite meetup venues, a retro-chic neighbourhood hotspot right across the Oosterpark. On this night we'll be hitting two birds with one stone, as we’ll also be given access to Bukowski’s sister Bar Henry’s right next door, a cocktail bar that's not normally open to the public on Wednesdays. Named after the writer Charles Bukowski, who once famously said: “There is always a reason to drink!” Many too, would give you very good reasons to help yourselves to the flammkuchen, Supernachos and other tasty items on their menu! ♣ Great event for first time attendees or returning veterans! ♣ Friendly staff and an extensive bar menu served till after midnight ♣ Plus you get to hang out with the coolest expat community in Amsterdam ;-) [ OPTIONAL] Join our whatsapp group by sending a message to [masked].
