What a nightmare it must be to work across the street from Trouw, which at the moment is being leveled bit by bit by heavy machinery and construction workers. Tom Trago, whose studio lays opposite of the club in the Volkshotel building, has documented the demolition of the hailed Amsterdam club in a small series of pictures and videos.
The venue will be replaced by the Student Hotel in 2016. Last week the organization made it clear that they would be interested in re-opening Trouw’s basement to re-institute a club there. Various parties from Amsterdam’s nightlife showed their interest after this information came out. Reportedly, Chicago Social Club and three bars from the Eastern borough of Amsterdam have talks scheduled with The Student Hotel management.
