To me March is the month that I can’t wait for the spring to start! It’s also the season that a lot of new places open the doors. When reading this top-6 of hotspots in Amsterdam that we’re super popular in March you probably think it’s time for a (re)visit. Plenty of inspiration for the coming weeks!
These were the Top-6 most popular hotspots of March 2014
Vondelpark 3 | Vondelpark | best of March hotspots in Amsterdam >>
Do you like to go to the Vondelpark for a walk? Whether it’s summer or winter, Vondelpark 3 is a nice spot for a drink there. This place is great for people watching during the weekends. The patio on the summer is very nice!

Izakaya | De Pijp | best of March hotspots in Amsterdam >>
At Yourlbb we love the Japanese food at Izakaya. It’s so good! It’s a great place for a late lunch on the weekends instead of going out for dinner. Or go in the evening for a night of wining and dining with friends. Start and end with a cocktail at the bar ;-). Dishes are made for sharing! Izakaya is located in the Sir Albert hotel. A great designhotel for a weekend in Amsterdam.

Le Petit Bistro | Amsterdam City Center | best of March hotspots in Amsterdam >>
Did you know there are two restaurants in hotel The Grand in Amsterdam? Of course the famous seafood restaurant Bridges (which is really great!) and Le Petit Bistro. The last one is really nice if you want to have a great meal but don’t want to spend the Michelin star budget. In the summer the beautiful courtyard is open. You almost forget you’re in the heart of Amsterdam there!

Le Deux Frères | Amsterdam City Center | best of March hotspots in Amsterdam >>
I think the men in Amsterdam are so lucky with all the cool stores that opened the doors the last few years. Les Deux Frères even opened two locations in Amsterdam last year. They have a really nice selection of brands and the service is great.

Hartje Oost | Amsterdam East | best of March hotspots in Amsterdam >>
The Javastraat in Amsterdam East became a suer hip street the last years. Hartje Oost is very nice for coffee, lunch and for shopping (sorry ladies only!). They have a beautiful selection of fashion and accessories. This concept store is a great addition to Amsterdam East!

Troost | De Pijp | best of March hotspots in Amsterdam >>
Do you like beer? And more specific, local beer? Then you have to check out Troost in De Pijp. This brewpub is perfect for a night out with friends with lots of beer and bar food. On the summer the patio is really nice!
