The halls

The building has four halls offering room for 3,600 visitors. The Danstheater (the theatre hall) is one of the building’s true gems. Part of the seating is on a balcony, so the atmosphere is more intimate than you might expect in a hall with 1300 seats. The Concertzaal is located on the second floor and is Amare’s largest hall. In its “classic” setup, the hall can seat 1500 seated guests. The concert hall is also used as a pop hall with a capacity of no less than 2500 people, for which Amare has entered into a partnership with pop stage PAARD.

Purest sound experience
Each of Amare’s four halls has been placed separately into the building. That way, the sound vibrations remain within each hall, preventing any noise leakage between them. Special provisions, such as acoustic ceilings, panels and curtains, have also been installed in the halls themselves to guarantee the purest sound experience.
