Amsterdam Weekend Guide // 10 tips for February 14, 15 & 16

13 February 2020

Happy weekend! I am still with one leg in the Brazilian vibes of the coastal town of Pipa where I was at the beginning of this week and with the other leg in the dark winter weather here in the Netherlands. Are you going to do something fun on Valentine’s Day? Or are you locking yourself inside with the best on demand series? I myself booked a night away last minute to Rotterdam (if you need inspiration, check this list with our favourite hotels in the Netherlands!). Are you staying in Amsterdam? Then quickly read on for 10 tips for fun things to do, in the new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for February 14, 15 & 16.

❶ Do you want to do something special this weekend? Then step aboard the Premium Winter Warmer Cruise from Talisker x Pure Boats and go on a two-hour cruise with unlimited snacks and drinks, including the Talisker Hot Chocolate. Nice detail: Talisker whiskey is made by women only, in the Scottish Isle of Skye. During this cruise you will sail on a small, covered boat and you can book at 1:30 pm or 4:00 pm during the weekend. Want to know more? Click here for more info and to make your reservation >>

❷ Brunch is always a good idea! Do you want to go brunch with friends or your lover this weekend? The Tailor is also organising a special brunch event together with Ketel One on Sunday February 16! During The Tailor’s Blues Brunch you can sit between 12 and 5pm for a boozy buzzing brunch with perfectly made Bloody Marys, a Louisiana style menu full of comfort food and live blues music. Want to know more and make your reservation?

 | VALENTINES TIP: Are you familiar with SurpriSeat? This restaurant platform turns going out to dinner into a real exciting event again. I highly recommend trying this out for a date night. For € 26,50 you can book a 2 course dinner in Amsterdam, Utrecht or Rotterdam. The restaurant you will be eating at is kept secret until a couple hours before dinner time. Want to experience this too? Use the code YLBB to get a € 7,50 discount on a surprise dinner for 2. Read more about it in this blogpost or make a reservation here for your own SurpriSeat >>

❸ This weekend the new exhibition about Bali will start at The Tropenmuseum. Nice for when you have plans to go on a holiday to this island and want to know more about the culture. Or to get inspired. Extra fun: In Café De Tropen at the museum you can enjoy Indonesian dishes in style afterwards.


❹ Fingers crossed for dry weather, because on Sunday the Museumplein will again be transformed into the creative Museum Market. With many different stalls with handmade products and street food. For more info check out Facebook >>

❺ Silent discos are always fun! At Noorderlicht you can dance this Saturday to the tastiest hits from the 70’s80’s & 90’s, during De Stille Disco (Silent Disco). Who do you wanna dance all night with? Check the Facebook event for all details >>
