Amsterdam Weekend Guide

Amsterdam Weekend Guide for November 11, 12 & 13

10 November 2016

Oh my! This is going to be a risky weekend if you want to save your money. There are so many temptations lurking… I mean, the city of Amsterdam has – again – gained some super cool hotspots. How about Asian bites at Dum Dum Palace or Cha House? Or go for a culinary Japanese dinner to Hoofdstad Brasserie for their pop-up menu! And there will also be some great sales and other activities (read: Friday after work drinks and parties) where you can let that money roll. And loads of other fun things as well. One thing that I definitely recommend is the pop-up of the Mooie Boules Bar to play boules with your friends. Plenty of choice, oh yes! Discover your best options in the Amsterdam Weekend Guide! Enjoy! >>

GOOD NEWS: this weekend you can use our promo code to get your first ride with ABEL taxi service for free. Our code is ABEL-YLBB!
