Welcome to Amsterdam

Amsterdam showcases its Dutch heritage in its charming canal architecture, museums filled with works by Old Masters, jenever (Dutch gin) tasting houses and candle-lit bruin cafés (traditional Dutch pubs). Yet this free-spirited city is also a multinational melting pot with an incredible diversity of cultures and cuisines, along with some of Europe’s hottest nightlife venues, in a compact, village-like setting.

Amsterdam’s sizzling-hot foodie scene boasts a vast array of eating options, such as classic Dutch snacks; reinvented traditional recipes; on-trend establishments pioneering world-first concepts; a wave of new, ultra-healthy eateries, often vegetarian or vegan; and an increasing focus on wine, cocktail and craft-beer pairings.


Dutch Cuisine
Traditional Dutch cuisine revolves around meat, potatoes and vegetables. Typical dishes include stamppot (mashed pot) – potatoes mashed with another vegetable (usually kale or endive) and served with smoked sausage and strips of bacon.
Fresh winds are blowing through the Dutch traditional kitchen, breathing new life into centuries-old recipes by giving them a contemporary twist.

Current Trends
Concept restaurants, such as an all-avocado restaurant, are popping up all over the city. Other current trends include gourmet street food (poké bowls, ramen, tacos…) as well as all-day brunch. Foodhallen , in the De Hallen tram depot-turned-cultural complex, has a host of eateries under one roof, and is a fantastic place to take the city’s dining temperature.

A Many restaurants don’t accept credit cards. Or if they do, there’s often a 5% surcharge. Conversely, an increasing number of places accept cards only. Check first.

Drinking & Nightlife

Amsterdam is one of the world’s wildest nightlife cities. Beyond the Red Light District, Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein, the clubbing scene has expanded thanks to 24-hour-licensed venues. Yet you can easily avoid the hardcore party scene: Amsterdam remains a café (pub) society where the pursuit of pleasure focuses on cosiness and charm.


Amsterdam is famed for its historic bruin cafés (brown cafes; traditional Dutch pubs). The name comes from the nicotine stains from centuries of use (although recent aspirants slap on brown paint to catch up). Most importantly, the city’s brown cafes provide an atmosphere conducive to conversation – and the nirvana of gezelligheid (conviviality, cosiness).

Amsterdam is banging on Berlin’s door to claim the mantle of Europe’s clubbing capital. The electronic music extravaganza Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE; www.amsterdam-dance-event.nl ; h mid-Oct) is a fixture on the city’s calendar, and from 2012 Amsterdam has appointed a nachtburgemeester (night mayor), representing and encouraging the city’s nightlife and economy (the first city in the world to do so).
Inner-city clubs are integrating into the social fabric, and epic venues (including some with 24-hour licences) are occupying repurposed buildings outside the city centre (accessible by public transport) to avoid noise. In addition to club nights, they mount multi-genre art exhibitions, markets and other diverse cultural offerings.

Best Brown Cafes
In ‘t Aepjen Candles burn all day long in the time-warped, 500-year-old house.
Hoppe An icon of drinking history beloved by journalists, bums and raconteurs.
De Sluyswacht Swig in the lock-keeper’s quarters across from Rembrandt’s house.

Brouwerij Troost Sip frothy house-made suds.
Brouwerij De Prael Socially minded brewery that makes strong organic beers.
Oedipus Brewery & Tap Room Brilliant brewery in Amsterdam Noord.

Best Cocktail Bars
Rosalia’s Menagerie Dutch heritage–themed cocktails in vintage surrounds.
Tales & Spirits House infusions and vintage glasses.
Canvas Edgy, artsy bar with great views atop the former Volkskrant newspaper building, now a flash hotel.
Door 74 Speakeasy-style bar mixing some of Amsterdam’s wildest cocktails.

Best Coffee
Lot Sixty One Red-hot Amsterdam roastery.
Scandinavian Embassy Coffee sourced from Scandinavian micro-roasteries.

Drinking & Nightlife: Top Tips
A Café means pub; a coffeeshop is where one gets marijuana.
A Een bier , een pils or een vaasje is a normal-sized glass of beer; een kleintje pils is a small glass.
A A koffie is black; koffie verkeerd (coffee ‘wrong’) is made with milk, similar to a caffe latte.


During the Golden Age, Amsterdam was the world’s warehouse, stuffed with riches from the far corners of the earth. The capital’s cupboards are still stocked with all kinds of exotica (just look at that red-light gear!), as well as antiques, but you’ll also find cutting-edge Dutch fashion and design.


Specialities & Souvenirs
Dutch fashion is all about cool, practical designs that don’t get caught in bike spokes. Dutch-designed homewares bring a stylish touch to everyday objects. Antiques, art and vintage goodies also rank high on the local list. Popular gifts include tulip bulbs, Gouda cheese and bottles of jenever (Dutch gin). Blue-and-white Delft pottery is a widely available quality souvenir. And, of course, clogs, bongs and pot-leaf-logo T-shirts are in great supply.

Shopping Streets
The busiest shopping streets are Kalverstraat by the Dam and Leidsestraat, which leads into Leidseplein. Both are lined with department stores, such as Dutch retailers Hema and De Bijenkorf. The Old South’s PC Hooftstraat lines up Chanel, Diesel, Gucci and other fancy fashion brands.

Boutiques & Antiques
At the top of the Jordaan, Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk are lined with hip boutiques and food shops. Just to the south, the Negen Straatjes (Nine Streets) offers a satisfying browse among offbeat, pint-sized shops.
Antique and art buffs should head for the Southern Canal Ring’s Spiegel Quarter, along Spiegelgracht and Nieuwe Spiegelstraat.

Best Markets
Albert Cuypmarkt Vibrant street market spilling over with food, fashion and bargain finds.
Waterlooplein Flea Market Piles of curios for treasure hunters.
Noordermarkt It’s morning bliss trawling for organic foods and vintage clothes.

Best Dutch Design
Hôtel Droog The famed collective is known for sly, playful, repurposed and reinvented homewares.
Frozen Fountain Amsterdam’s best-known showcase of Dutch-designed furniture and homewares.
