MATTHEW CARNEY

Matthew B. Carney is a man of many talents: Actor; presenter; radio host; writer; cultural strategist... the list goes on.

Originally from the North West of England, Matthew trained in The Netherlands and Berlin, before landing in Amsterdam, where he now lives. In addition to his acting and strategy work, he also hosts a radio show, where he and co-host Maxine put the world to rights on a variety of topics. And if all of that wasn't enough, he is currently writing his first play!

A man with his finger firmly on the pulse, we asked Matthew to share some of the hottest spots in Amsterdam...

VERONICA SCHIP

Intimate party vibe

"I always have a good time in this venue, the dance floor is in the belly of the boat, with its low ceiling and the fact it's a smaller venue the nights have that nice intimate party vibe."

//

RADION

Roll around at night

"One of my favourite clubs, lots of rooms and spaces to roll around on a night out, I always seem to meet amazing people in the smoking room, one of my fave nights there is Spielraum."

//

PAMELA

Drink with Pam

"A new bar which is really well curated in terms of drinks, food, artwork and music, the owners are building and celebrating a community on the side of queer, a nice addition to the Amsterdam bar scene with links to Is Burning, another great club night."

//

DE FIGURANTENBAR

The Dutch touch

"An old school brown bar on my street, it's untouched and timeless, always the same bar staff and the same regulars, with classic music, mostly old soul and indie classics."

//

HET HEM

Unique events space in Zaandam

"In Zaandam, this venue was an old military factory, but despite its dark history, the space is amazing - really well curated art exhibitions, a little art and design library, chill out areas to work and really nice café."
