Amsterdam's latest club - Noorderschip - is housed in the ex-Radio Veronica ship, Norderney. The vessel has been docked in Amsterdam for years and ins now located off the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam North.
The new club, which opened on 11th May, has three levels (including a terrace) and a capacity of 300, with a dance floor below sea level.
David Cornelissen, Noorderschip's creative director, said he hopes the venue will become a new cultural port in the local community, focusing more on local initiatives and collectives that still need a place in Amsterdam.
This policy will involve booking local talent, as well as international artists who may not get booked at Amsterdam's other clubs.
Noorderschip's daytime event programme will include courses, lectures, art exhibitions and more. The restaurant will have a locally sourced vegetarian menu.
