Panama is a club on the northeast edge of central Amsterdam, right on the water and housed in a century old former port authority building. The venue is expansive with high ceilings and windows, owing to the buildings warehouse heritage. A century ago enormous machines have been providing electricity to the old harbour from this impressive building. Panama is one of the oldest running clubs in Amsterdam with a rich history.

We have lined up a spacious and wide ship with two modern decorated halls and a gigantic outer deck.
