The successor to the much-missed Trouw is housed in a disused school in the city's West district

It's been a full year since much-loved Amsterdam club Trouw closed its doors after one final 35-hour party headlined by Seth Troxler. And now the club's owners, Post BS CV, have finally announced an opening date for Trouw's successor, De School.

It was announced back in October that the new club would be housed in a disused former school on Jan van Breemenstraat, in the West district of the city. Originally, they were hoping to open before the end of the year, but they just missed that target, and De School (bet they were up all night thinking up that name!) will now open its doors on 3 January.

De School has a 24-hour licence, though most nights will end at 5am, say the organisers, "or 10am on very good nights". But the plan is to develop a space that's in use around the clock, and to that end, the site will also be home to a restaurant and bar as well as the club itself, which have been named Restaurant DS and Bar DS (there they go with those names again!)

De School has a capacity of 500 and, like Trouw before it, is being granted only a temporary five-year licence. The emphasis will be on resident DJs curating their own line-ups – you can see the line-up for January and February here. The line-up for the opening night itself remains a secret, but tickets went on sale on Thursday.
