15 x the best new hotspots in Amsterdam

14 May 2016

These are the best hotspots that opened their doors in April!

However it seems like yesterday that we played our stupidest jokes on April first, May has already started in full glory! And at Yourlbb a passed month means many new hotspots! So, it’s about time that we list up all these new restaurants, bars and other hangout spots! Check our list with 11 x best new hotspots of Amsterdam below!

Taqueria tacobar >> New HOTSPOTS IN AMSTERDAM

We, at YourLBB, were so happy when we found out that a Taqueria was coming in West! As the name suggests, you’ll find the most delicious tacos over here. And because tacos are the new burgers, we’re so happy that Amsterdam now has its own taco hotspot!

Yes! Finally Chiapas Taco Cartel opened its doors on the Van Wou in De Pijp! This new taco bar was immediately named a hotspot because the beautiful interior was done by Noun which also did the interior of our favorites The Meets and C Amsterdam!

Yoepz Amsterdam


Surf and turf at Yoepz in De Pijp! Because whether you like lobster and/or chicken, Yoepz is the place to be. The interior is a little industrial but yet very cozy. This is the ideal spot to have dinner with friends without being broke at the end of the night!

vascobelo v bar rijnstraat >> new hotspots in amsterdam

Yay! Another great coffee spot in town. Vascobelo already had a coffee bar on the Rokin, but now they’ve opened another one in the Rivievierenbuurt. Modern, but yet cosy because the space is divided in different ‘living rooms’. The perfect place to chit chat, read your favourite magazines or just work!

If you’re looking for a nice place to have a healthy breakfast or lunch, you have to go to De Sapbar. Or take out your daily dose of vitamins because the fresh juices are also incredibly delicious! We are so happy that this former food truck has a permanent spot in East. :-)

This hotspot in the Baarsjes brings all the tea lovers to the seventh heaven! Because the gentlemen of T’s are striving to bring world’s best tea to the Netherlands. You definitely won’t find any readymade teabags in here but fresh teas of high level. No time to drink your tea at T’s? Than buy some tea to enjoy at home!

This healthy hotspot has only just opened in De Pijp. And we’re more than happy to welcome Frnzy, because hey, what’s more fun than a restaurant without any theme? At Frnzy you can eat the classic croque madame as well as Vietnamese spring rolls. Yum!

Kauffmann >> new hotspots in amsterdam

The area around the De Clerq just keeps getting better and better. Because just at the beginning of the Admiraal now Bar Kauffmann has opened its doors. A very nice renovated place with even a small terrace in the sun. But even better, here they serve upscaled falafel and craft beer. Is this a new summer hotspot? Yes it is!
