is the amstelveenseweg becoming the hottest street in south?
The Amstelveenseweg is hard on its way to becoming the new place to be in Amsterdam Old South. In a short period we went back over and over again to check out new openings. We wanted to eat cakes at the pink Sticky Fingers, wanted to see the second location of Lavinia Good Food and wanted to enjoy a night full of poetry and cocktails at Labyrinth. The long road next to the Vondelpark in Amsterdam Old South is no longer a boring road you pass by on the way back home. That’s why we created this new list with 14 hotspots to stop and drink a coffee, order a pizza or go to for afternoon drinks.
Ps: Did you already see the new week vlog of Yourlbb? We visited Sticky Fingers!
