Magnolia Hotel Amsterdam

A new boutique hotel in the Museum District of Amsterdam just opened it’s doors: The Neighbour’s Magnolia, named after the Magnolia tree in the neighbour’s garden. The hotel has 21 rooms, all with big comfy beds and decorated with furniture by HAY design. A godsend for visitors who want to stay at the most beautiful and central location of Amsterdam but pay a lower prize. And if you want to sip a €15 euro gin & tonic, you just go nextdoor to the fancy Conservatoriumhotel.

Ree7

Another hot & hip lunch concept in the hustle and bustle of the nine little streets in Amsterdam. Ree7 is small and intimate (like every other place in the Jordaan) and serves freshly baked bread, homemade soups and tasty salads. It’s also the go-to place for a glass of wine and some cheese to end your shopping spree. But what truly enriches this popular Amsterdam neighborhood is the restaurant being open for dinner on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Bo Cinq

The populair bar and restaurant Bo Cinq, which opened it’s doors in 2009, has been re-decorating. The best feature is definitely the extremely long cocktail bar. On the menu is a mixture of tasty French and Arabic dishes. But you might as well skip dinner and order a cocktail. They are specialized in gin & tonics. L1004963-Edit L1003503-Edit

Joe & The Juice

When visiting London last December we discovered Joe & The Juice, not knowing at the time that you can find this juice bar in several countries throughout Europe. Joe & The Juice is not just another Juice Bar. The inside of the store is dark and edgy, which gives it cool underground vibes, like sitting in a dark, underground rave bar (except you’re drinking juice instead of beer). They get extra credit for the fantastic names on the menu like ‘Hangover Heaven’ and ‘Go away Doc’. Ánd they serve super healthy salads and sandwiches.

Hutspot

With two locations in Amsterdam, Hutspot is the newest, trendiest place to sip our Saturdaymorning coffee. Maybe even too trendy. Only go here if you’re not afraid of running into typical Amsterdam hipsters. That said, they do serve delicious coffee, sandwiches (served with potato chips) and cakes.

Bar & Grill Marathonweg

From the same chef as Amsterdam’s fancy and trendy Lion Noir, there is now a new restaurant: Marathonweg.
It’s situated in the south area of Amsterdam, near the old olympic stadium. At this place, they have heard from gemutlichkeit before: candles, amazing flower pieces and cosy little tables and chairs. But not at the least they know how to cook. They serve good meat, and tasty fish, all grilled on a special charcoal grill. No complicated dishes or ingredients, but what they serve is simply good and tasty. But the best feature is without a doubt the huge sunny terrace which is open in summertime.

Hotel U Prince Prague

Wandering through the streets of Prague in summer time can be exhausting. Not only is there so much to see; you have to make your way through hundreds and hundreds of tourists. For this reason we find it so refreshing to enter 5 star Hotel U Prince and take the elevator all the way to the rooftop, where you’ll find the best rooftop restaurant in town. It’s a win-win: more to see of Prague, less tourists. Add fine wine and a nice meal and you won’t feel bad to pay a little extra. A reservation is recommended, especially on the weekend.

Bilder&DeClercq

What a great solution for modern-day working girls (or guys) in the city: at Bilder&TheClercq you can choose between 9 different recipes and shop all the ingredients for it. The recipes are easy, no-nonsense, healthy and delicious! Shopping for dinner at this new hotspot in the Western area of Amsterdam means being aware of the environment and the world’s eco-system. Because if you need only one clove of garlic, you can just buy only one clove of garlic. Say goodbye to the days that you find rotten veggies in the back of your refrigerator.

Al Capriolo

Ski season in Europe has almost come to an end – spend your last snow-filled days at the exclusive ski resort Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy. Outside the town of Cortina you will find the amazing wild game restaurant Al Capriolo, which is definitely worth a visit. The interior is warm and inviting, with hunting trophies, roe deer (capriolo) antlers and wine bottles throughout the space. The restaurant has been managed by the same family for over a century and they really set the standard for quality regional cuisine. There is a great selection of wines to complement the awesome game dishes; treat yourself Italian style!

De Goudvisclub

A strange name for foreigners. Goudvisclub means goldfish club. Luckily it’s not goldfish that’s on the menu, it’s asian streetfood, delicious cocktails and fine wines. The place is open and spacious, perfect for bringing a group of friends and just eat, drink and talk for hours. Only a short walk from Amsterdam’s central train station you couldn’t be any more downtown than this. In the mood for dancing? You are lucky, because the popular bar and club Bitterzoet is literally next door.
