Poll 2023: Shelter Amsterdam
Shelter Amsterdam

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands  

Capacity: 1,100 

Descend the steps of Shelter’s unassuming entrance to discover a huge rectangular cavern quaking to the sound of a mighty Funktion-One soundsystem. A purpose-built club beneath North Amsterdam’s A’DAM Tower, Shelter first opened in 2016 and debuted in the Top 100 Clubs poll last year thanks to its impeccable house and techno programming. This year alone has seen the subterranean spot welcome Cinthie and Dam Swindle (via a HE.SHE.THEY takeover), the Slapfunk crew, live sets from Paranoid London and Headless Horseman, and minimal staples Margaret Dygas, Traumer and Priku, to name just a handful.
