Review of Sameplace: An Amsterdam Lifestyle Club

Doc, I’m spending some time in the beautiful city of Amsterdam with its picture perfect canals and old world architecture. It is one of the great cities of Europe to explore on foot. Amsterdam is also renowned for its sexual inhibitions and vibrant red light district. I spent the first several days strolling down narrow brick streets taking in the sights and of course checking out the theater and club scene. I found a small neighborhood club to visit on a Saturday night in May. The club is called Sameplace and it’s located just beyond the centrum, a 20 minute walk from De Wallen (the red light district). (ed. note: I have the address information in The Good Doctor's Adult Theater Database)

Sameplace looks on the outside very much like many other neighborhood bars in Amsterdam. It’s located in an upscale neighborhood facing one of Amsterdam’s many canals. To enter you step into a small foyer, ring a buzzer and wait for the manager to invite you inside.

The d├ęcor is features dark colors and dark wood keeping in the style of an older neighborhood bar. Accent lights give the club a red glow and a warm and cozy feeling. I took a seat at the bar ordered a drink and began to check out my new surroundings. I was setting at a u-shaped bar with seating for a dozen or so people with additional seating arranged around the room. 

Along one side of the bar area were two small alcoves with cushions where quests could relax and play. I could see into a second room that looked like a large open play area. Stripper polls and several large raised platforms with thick cushions lined one wall. This room appeared to double as a dance floor with a raised DJ stand. During my orientation I was told the lower level is where most of the action takes place. I scanned the bar area until I located a small steep set of stairs that lead down to what I assumed was the play area.

I decided I would check out the lower level a little latter and began to check out the crowd at the bar. It was still early and the crowd was lite but to my surprise, a group of six woman were seated at the bar drinking and having a lively conversation. They appeared to all be in their early 30’s and overall a very attractive group. Two couples were also at the bar relaxing with a beverage. They were both middle age and attractive. This was beginning to look like a good night.
