Japan-themed karaoke bar on the main gay street in town, the bar is really fun even if you're not going to use the karaoke booths! This whole street (Reguliersdwarsstraat) is full of buzzing bars and nightlife.

Art & Culture
Incredible contemporary art gallery in an old munitions factory, one of the coolest places to see here in my opinion! It's out the city in Zandaam, but worth it for a day out, the exhibitions are 10euros but there is also a cafe, bar and sunny terrace. It's open Thurs-Sunday and you can catch the ferry there from Centraal station: https://hethem.nl/en/Het-Hem/Route

Long sandy beach and sand dunes, 30min on the train out of Amsterdam. Take the direct train from Sloterdijk to Zandvoort aan zee. Even nicer is Bloemendaal beach with its cute beach bars, you can exit the train at Haarlem and take the bus 81 to Bloemendaal aan zee.
