17 x restaurants that are open on New Year’s Eve in Amsterdam

Café Parlotte

Café Parlotte is a favorite every day of the year, especially on New Year’s Eve. Few catering establishments in Amsterdam have owners and staff with so much love for the profession. Their wine and champagne selection (also non-alcoholic!) is also excellent, and owner Margot talks with the greatest love about its origin. The menu at Parlotte consists mainly of shared dining, of which the vongole shells are a bestseller.
