NYX is a 3-floor gay dance club on Reguliersdwarstsraat. In case you are wondering, NYX was a Greek goddess and daughter of Chaos who would fly through the sky bringing darkness behind her – rather appropriate for a nightclub.
Each floor offers a different style of music, and the focus is very much on a fun night out with as little pretension as possible. Check NYX’s website for details of upcoming parties.

Profits from TRUT are paid to a number of different charity projects – more than 100,000 euros over the past few years. The venue can only fit about 200 people, so arrive early or expect to queue.
