Adam Toren Amsterdam: here you must, want and need to go to

3 June 2016

adam toren amsterdam brings you 24/7 inspiration & fun!

The old Shell Tower. The Overhoeks Tower. That long building along the IJ, behind central station. Everyone knows the tower, there in between the EYE and Tolhuistuin. Because since 1966, this skyscraper defines the skyline of Amsterdam North. And after years of decay and renovation he’s finally transformed into the new creative incubator of Amsterdam: Adam Toren Amsterdam!

Because creative, that’s what A’dam Toren is. Established by the inventive and artistic minds behind ID&T (Duncan Stutterheim), Mysteryland and Club Air (Sander Groet), MassiveMusic (Hans Brouwer) and real estate company Lingotto (Eric-jan de Rooij) the tower is now a steady creature full of pride. And with this collective support you already can guess the outcome actually. At Adam Tower Amsterdam everything is about the ultimate experience. The experience of the city thanks to the 360° view from the ‘crown’. The experience of delicious food in the revolving restaurant. The experience of great music in the club and so much more experience. Because Adam has a lot to offer to the tourist as well as to the people from Amsterdam.

And this brand new offer may be somewhat overwhelming, so that’s we’ve listed the best hotspots of A’dam Toren Amsterdam for you.

Madam Amsterdam is the panaroma bar and restaurant on the 20th floor of the old Shell tower. During the day you can go here for a coffee and the beautiful 360˚ view, but during the night… Then Madam transforms into the highest nightclub of Amsterdam

Because everything is about the experience at A’dam Toren, also the restaurant isn’t just about food. But also about everything that happens on the side. That’s why Moon Amsterdam, the restaurant on the 19th floor of the tower, literally revolves once every hour while you’re having dinner. This makes it the first revolving rooftop restaurant of Amsterdam!

Where there’s the possibility to dance, there must also be the possibility to sleep. And that’s why there’s Sir Adam Amsterdam. This luxury boutique hotel, that houses the first eight floors of A’dam, wants to offer not only the traveler but also the Amsterdammer the ultimate sleep experience. And that’s why everything is focussed on the wanderlusters from all over the world, but as well on the inhabitants of Amsterdam and for example the neighbours. In short: a place for everybody!

Part of the Sir Adam hotel is The Butcher Social Club. This is were you can go for delicious burgers at the first floor of the old Shell Tower.

And that comes in handy, because The Butcher Social Club Amsterdam is open 24 hours a day! Just be patience a little longer, they won’t open until October!
