It’s about that time again for a fresh dose of culture. Amsterdam’s museums will be open tonight from 7 pm – 2 am with special programming, events and performances. If you’re looking to bust a move next to the nightwatch or listen to a poet in the van Gogh museum this is your chance.

ImageThe SS13 sale has started and to give it a little twist (something we like to do ’round here) we’re doing it in three stages of increasing discounts this season.

The 1st week will be 30% off.
The 2nd week will be 40% off.
The 3rd week will be 50% off.

You can grab your pair off essential summer wear now at 30% off or wait around a bit for a higher discount….but someone else may just beat you to the punch.

Hotel de Goudfazant

A great restaurant in the north of Amsterdam. They’ve been around for a while but we’d never been there before. The restaurant is located in an old spacious warehouse on the waterfront of the once industrial north side of town. There was really nothing wrong with anything at this place. The location is remarkable, the food is tasty and the staff attentive. What more can you ask for?

Definitely one to visit on the reg.

City Beach: Pllek

Sometimes there’s a new thing in town and you don’t really want to give it away. Just so that you can enjoy it by yourself and don’t have to share it with the rest of the city right at the beginning. Pllek (a play on the dutch word ‘place’with double l) is one of those places.

We went there in the last days of May when we had some early sun and we finally decided that it’s too good not to be shared. It’s in the industrial north of Amsterdam where a lot of creative companies have settled in the past decade. Pllek consists of a main building made out of shipping containers, a deck with picnic tables and a fine pebble beach with a great view over the water and the new skyline of the western harbour. They’re still adding new features to the site and expanding the kitchen’s offering, or at least back in May they were, but we already enjoyed a well made coffee and delicious sandwich that were beyond expectations for a beach joint.
