Soulkitchen Amsterdam is for anyone who loves extensive dining, cocktails, and club nights. Soulkitchen offers it all, right in the heart of Amsterdam. Discover more about this particular spot where you’ll feel abroad.

Why you want to spend the night at Soulkitchen Amsterdam

A concept that has been successful for years in London, Paris, and New York but has never truly taken off in our own country: the restaurant-turned-nightclub concept. Until now, Soulkitchen Amsterdam has been set to change that for good.

On an average Friday, if you go out for dinner and still want to hit the dance floor of a club, you’ve got several hours to bridge. An Amsterdam nightclub generally doesn’t get busy until around one o’clock. Soulkitchen offers a solution, with the music starting from 10 PM and an extensive cocktail menu. From 10 PM, you can dance or sip your cocktail while enjoying uptempo beats in a seductive environment.

Menu Soulkitchen

Chef Alessandro Ledda was inspired during his many travels. What touched him most were people who cook with heart and soul—because, ultimately, you can taste the love that goes into a dish. He blends this love and passion with the Peruvian and Japanese cuisines at Soulkitchen, also known as Nikkei cuisine. From sushi to ceviche, Alessandro masters every dish from these countries. The menu features snacks such as zucchini flower tempura, corvina ceviche, miso-glazed aubergine, and edamame. There are also classics like Japanese hand rolls with fresh tuna, various types of sashimi, Padron peppers, and a typical Peruvian salad. Everything is in balance at Soulkitchen. “When developing the Soulkitchen menu, I wanted to combine the freshest and boldest flavours I learned from Japan and Peru. Each dish in my kitchen reflects the techniques I’ve learned and the flavours I’ve experienced in these countries. Additionally, by collaborating with talented Japanese and Peruvian chefs in world cities like London, Spain, and Amsterdam, I’ve further enriched my culinary repertoire,” explains the chef.

The cocktails are inspired by musical classics, such as “Vogue” by Madonna and “One More Time” by Daft Punk. In short, this place has all the ingredients for a perfect evening.
