The decline of traditional print media has a plus side in Amsterdam, with Trouw occupying a former printing warehouse for national newspapers Parool, Volkskrant and Trouw, a resistance publication during World War 2.
Located on the east side of the city in an area currently booming with new bars, shops and restaurants, the list of acts to have frequented the club's two rooms is suitably hip; Ben Klock, Seth Troxler, DJ Harvey, James Murphy, Henrik Schwarz, Ben UFO, Daphni and Loco Dice just a fraction of those to succumb to its rough charm.
It's not all unbridled hedonism though, with the space holding an art gallery and a 'vegetable restaurant' (where you can still get meat or fish on the side). Trouw also boasts Amsterdam's first 24-hour licence, a fact celebrated by Mayor Eberhard van der Laan playing the first record afterwards to celebrate the occasion. Catch his new residency coming soon... possibly.
