A surreal venue, massive, buzzing, great views, fantastic food.
8. De Foodhallen
The best concept to immerse in Amsterdam. A food market with a wide variety of high quality food stands. A great place. Check it out before it makes the tourist guides.
The first cool restaurant in Oud Zuid with a great price/quality ratio. Great meat. Some kind of colonial/expat ambiance inside.
A wonderful cozy place serving a lot of delicious teas. A wonderful place to chill out.
11. Six & Sons
A very fun men's store, great coffee, a lot of beards. It can be that simple to make this list.
