The club forms part of a wider cultural centre in the former school buildings that also houses young creative businesses and artist studios as well as a concert venue, restaurant, cafe, exhibition space and a gym. The club itself has a capacity of 500 and is located in the school's former bike shed.
24 hour licence
De School Amsterdam holds a 24 hour licence, as its predecessor Trouw did before it, meaning that nights can be open ended. Some nights will end around 5am while others will go on until 9am or 10am, with the eventual goal to create a 24 hour culture where people can dance, eat, drink and enjoy the venue's cultural offerings at any time of the day.
Trouw Amsterdam: The legend lives on
Trouw closed its doors in January 2015, after a successful five years in which the venue established itself as one of the most exciting and innovative nightclubs in the world. Although always intended as a temporary fixture on Amsterdam's night scene, Trouw has been mourned by the global dance community since its closure - so all eyes will be firmly fixed on the club's successor.
