De Jordaan in Amsterdam is known for its cozy atmosphere. We love to walk around the tiny little streets and canals, and discover new restaurants and authentic cafés. In this neighbourhood you can find a mix of artists, students and young entrepreneurs, but also the ‘original Amsterdammers’.
If you happen to be in the Jordaan, you have to make sure to at least visit some great hotspots! For a perfect brunch you should go to Gs, with the needed bloody mary’s. For good salads, SLA is the place to be. And for a romantic diner you should go to De Luwte. The coolest streets in this neighbourhood are de Westerstraat, the Tweede Anjeliersdwarsstraat, the Tweede Tuinstraat and the Tweede Egelantiersdwarsstraat. Here the restaurants represent kitchens from all over the world. You can find good take-out shops, beautiful concept stores and original brown Amsterdam cafés there. Discover all these hotspots in our Jordaan Guide!
