Pied a Terre
The name of this store is translated as “temporary shelter,” but it can rather be called a traveler’s dream. After all, this place has everything a wandering soul desires.
Pied à Terre is one of the world’s largest travel bookstores. It has thousands of books, magazines, and guidebooks telling about almost every square meter on the planet. Here, you can find stories of famous travelers, special places for extreme sports lovers, as well as special routes and tips for traveling the world by bicycles, bikes, and cars, etc.
The store also offers a wide choice of globes and maps of different scales and from different times and a lot of nice souvenirs for travelers. Workers here are not just casual people - each of them has traveled thousands of miles. That is why they will help you decide what to buy and will share valuable advice.
Walking around the city is nice, but enjoying it from a bird’s eye view is even better. Especially if you can do this over a delicious breakfast or dinner. Floor17 is a large restaurant and terrace located on the 17th floor of a skyscraper, offering an incredible view of Amsterdam. It is situated in the building of one of the hotels, but the residents of the city regularly visit this place. They love meat dishes and secret treats from the chef, as well as a large selection of drinks and the opportunity to cook yourself a dessert. Polite and friendly staff is a pleasant bonus.
All the Amsterdamers, who love and appreciate good music, will certainly advise you to check out Maloe Melo - “the best blues bar in the city.” It is in this small bar that what is called “the magic of music” happens every evening. The best blues and jazz performers and even musicians from other countries regularly hold wonderful concerts and musical evenings here.
The bar looks like a small room with old furniture and vintage posters, but everything comes to life when the music starts to play. World-famous musicians also perform here, and you can check for upcoming shows in advance on the website or the playbill of Maloe Melo. And do not forget to help yourself a drink, they are very diverse and very tasty here.
A great place for a summer vacation in Amsterdam. The good thing about it is that only locals hang out here. Pllek is a two-story cafe and bar with a small beach near it and a rich evening entertainment program. There are always a lot of young people here, who come to rest, sunbathe, or simply enjoy the views of the city or the bay of Houthaven.
Locals especially love Pllek for its cuisine: it serves exclusively organic food, a lot of healthy meat, fish, and vegetable dishes. There is also a vegetarian menu, as well as a large selection of drinks.
In the evening, you can have a good time at a party, concert, or another event. In general, the fun never stops here. And this place was built only from cargo containers.
Do not be surprised that there are a lot of entertaining establishments in our guide because it’s Amsterdam - this city won’t let you get bored! And here is another option for some high-quality evening pastime - the Paradiso Concert Hall. This place got on our list in the first place because it is situated in the building of an old church, so both the sound and the atmosphere here are wonderful.
In Paradiso, you can often hear the world’s best singers performing their hits. Such stars as Pink Floyd, Prince, Nirvana, and many other musicians have been here. The place is small and very popular, so the tickets are almost always sold out long before the show. Locals say that the concerts in Paradiso are impossible to forget: the beautiful stained-glass windows, unique acoustics, and the style of this place itself leave incredible sensations.
