Something a wee bit naughty is brewing on Brunswick St. If you dig stiff drinks, late nights and basement gigs then you’re in for a treat. We’re biased, but we think it might be the best ‘dam joint in town.
Whiskies, beers, a few party drinks and a healthy dose of Rock’n’Roll is The Dam vibe. Unfussy and inspired by too many late nights in too many dive bars around the world, we’re a bit rough round the edges… and that’s just how we like it.
If you’re after healthy options, then let’s face it, you’re probably in the wrong place. If you’re after full-on flavour bombs and you don’t mind the lights being too low for Instagramming the life out of everything, then you should feel right at home.
Freaks, thrill-seekers and lovers of gritty, musical real-ness rejoice! In the bowls of The Amsterdam lurks The Dam Basement, an underground space for gigs, clubs and all manner of wild scenes.
Low ceilings, big sounds and a flexible setup to go quickly from basement bar to sold out show, means this cracking wee space is great, not just for us but for you to host own events too.
If you’d like something private, away from prying eyes, to get up to whatever you need to get up to then we can help you host a killer party. The ‘Dam Basement is perfect for a good size shindig and we’ve got a smaller area in the bar area too, just drop us a line to see what we can do for you.
