11 x urban jungle vibes worldwide
Welcome to the jungle! Urban jungle is THE home trend of 2017. Think of many green tones, even more plants and a chaotic interior with lots of wood, steel and concrete. Go for the chocolate in Bruges or eat oysters in San Francisco, but they all have one thing in common: jungle. Let the ultimate Tarzan or Jane come in and visit one of these 11 hotspots with a jungle interior.
Gitano: At restaurant and bar Gitano you almost think you’ve really landed in the jungle. On Sundays there is live music for the ultimate holiday feeling. And no worries, in Mexico it’s all year round hot so no excuse to visit this magic outdoor-spot. Or rent it for a party or wedding. Mán, what would we like to marry here!

Botanique: For Botanique, we don’t need to go too far but that doesn’t mean less jungle vibes. In Amsterdam East we find this hotspot, as they say “jungle dining & tropical wining”. Tip: the pizzas are very tasty too !!

Leo’s oyster bar: A city trip to San Francisco or a roundtrip through America? Go to Leo’s oyster bar. In addition to the love for oysters in no less than 12 different ways, they have an extensive menu in a stylish tent. And even a dessert with pineapple, vanilla ice cream, pistachio and pineapple caramel sauce… You can’t leave without that.
568 Sacramento St, San Francisco, CA 94111, United States – leossf.com
Wildernis: Of course we have known Wildernis on the Bilderdijkstraat for a long time. Thanks to this gem everyone likes gardening. But did you know that you can even sit between the plants for a cup of coffee or tea? Or sign up for one of the workshops! This way you can make your own plant hanger.

48 urban garden: This special place is known for the food truck they have in their jungle interior. But 48 urban garden is much more than that. An extensive kitchen in a hidden spot in Greece. Many lights, plants and wood give exactly the vibes they want to radiate. I’m already getting excited for their Greek salad!

Casa Cook Rhodes: In this gorgeous hotel you will find the jungle vibes the most in the restaurant, at the reception and in the wild outside. But also the bedrooms are oh-so beautiful and trendy. This favourite in the mountains is adults only, so perfect for a quiet getaway with all that. Great idea for next summer with your lover? ;-)

Benji’s: Escape your busy city life and unwind at Benji’s. An extension of nature in one of our favourite streets of Amsterdam. This all day breakfast spot is exactly what we need on a lazy sunday and actually every day of the week. The atmosphere of Bali makes us right again very happy.
Wibautstraat 196, 1091 Amsterdam – benjis.amsterdam
Jungle Bird cafe: Oh yay! Celebrate happy hour at Jungle Bird. Every cocktail looks so cool. There is also a cocktail that can only be ordered with a minimum of 6 people, costing $ 100, but you’ll have vodka, rum, champagne and all kinds of tropical juices for three hours! Very American, the bigger the better.

Concrete jungle cafe: Your adventurous trip to Australia is only complete after a visit to Concrete jungle cafe. Despite the interior it holds with green and gray tones, the menu is more colourful than anywhere! Order a blue smoothie bowl Blue Majik. It is not only very tasty, also very instaworthy.
58 Kensington St, Chippendale NSW 2008, Australia – concretejunglecafe.com
Restaurante Amazonico: Yes yes they also have one in Madrid! At Restaurante Amazonico you are in a fancy dining room but in jungle style. And … when I say: sushi, cocktails and home made ice cream ?! Then it has to be clear to you that once you’re in Madrid, you HAVE to make a reservation at Amazonico.
Calle Jorge Juan, 20, 28001 Madrid, Spain – restauranteamazonico.com
Choco Jungle bar: A lot of chocolate and choice at the Choco Jungle in Bruges. In addition to all four types of chocolate milk, you can also choose from 15 different flavors to add. Ask a Belgian waffle with warm chocolate sauce and take place in the ‘tree house’ or between the snakes.
