Visited Melkweg for the Carpenter Brut concert and really enjoyed the venue. Great vibe, very intimate and good acoustics. Would come back for sure, even though the beer was a bit expensive and the queue for the cloakroom was all over the place.

Encore is the best night on Fridays and Saturdays. Plus I checked their website it doesn't seem to show.

If I buy a ticket to another event the same night as Encore, can I just walk down the stairs and attend? Thank you

Hey Martiya, could you tell us for which date you bought tickets? Normally it is not possible to go to Encore with the same ticket, you would need a different ticket to get in. Best, Yves (Melkweg)
