A friend from Amsterdam got back to me with two options that came to mind:

The Waag Society: http://www.waag.org/ - very free software friendly,
but limited to 120 people. How many were we in total last time?

http://www.dezwijger.nl/?nid=184 - A warehouse (literally) for media and
cultural events - this is where the Blender Foundation held their user
conference last year. According to Ton, they were a little expensive,
but to his mind worth it.

There are a lot of alternative new media companies in Amsterdam, and I'm
sure that with a little more searching we could find even cooler/cheaper
