28 December 2013

The 5 most popular hotspots of June!

June means early summer time! And the month with the most festivals in town. Last June I went to Bali for the first time and loved it! Those who stayed at home checked out these hotspots.

5 favourites of June2013

1. The Oysterclub
The Oysterclub opened the doors in June and is located in the former Olympic Stadion in Amsterdam Old South. The Oyster Club has great seafood and beautiful interior. Go for after work drinks on Friday!

2. Hotel Droog
A great concept in Amsterdam close to the famous Waterlooplein. At Hotel Droog they sell a great collection of clothes and home and living items. I really like their sandwiches at the café.

3. Hannekes Boom
One of my favourite hotspots to hang out in the spring and summer. You can even go there with your boat! Hannekes Boom is always busy, food is cheap and very much ok!

4. Kanen bij Ten Kate
A great new food concept from last year was Kanen bij Ten Kate and Kanen aan het IJ. So I can’t wait for the new food truck season to begin!

5. Pasticceria
If you like ice-cream make sure that you check out Pasticceria at De Pijp in Amsterdam. I had the most delicious ice-cream there last summer and can’t wait till the weather is sunny and warm again.
