10 X THE BEST TIPS FOR THIS WEEKEND IN AMSTERDAM
❶ Last week was our second time having dinner via 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 € 24,95 you can book a 2 course dinner in Amsterdam 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 >>
❷ Love Indian food like me? Then you want to know Redbone. This place is from the same team that does Golden Brown (another favourite) and the concept is super cool. Almost a bit Berlin-like. They will soon also open a Redbone Coffee for all your daily coffee cravings! Want to know more? Follow Redbone on Instagram >>
❸ Did you guys hear already? This weekend Stan & Co officially opened their doors on the Weesperzijde in Amsterdam! Being their ‘neighbours’, we got to test out some of the things on the menu, and we could not be more excited with this new hotspot in town. Tip: this Friday we will be having an Instagram give-away for a dinner for 2 at this new place. So keep your eye on our page!

❽ Hanneke’s Boom. We would almost forget about this great place with all the new hotspots opening left right and center.
