SPRING IN DEN HAAG

We’ve been getting so much sunshine the past week here in the Netherlands. Even though it is still not as warm as I like it, I’ve slowly started to pull out my summer clothes and I’ve left all sweaters behind. Making sure not to miss the sunny weather, I headed to Scheveningen on Sunday. I planned a lovely lunch at The Harbour Club and took a walk around the area. I highly recommend this restaurant – incredible food and amazing view of the boats in front! Advertisements

MEET ME AT 5&33

Just at the corner of Martelaarsgracht and Prins Hendrikkade in Amsterdam, you will find the perfect spot in town for  foodies and art lovers. 5&33 has a kitchen, bar, lounge, art gallery, and library just a few steps away from the Central station. I picked the spot for a dinner with a friend and it quickly became a favourite of mine. The vibrant venue first captured  me with its design, ambiance, and elegant interior. The menu is inspired by Mediterranean flavours, offering a shared-dining concept (which I applauded after the first few dishes came around. You just want to try everything there is on the menu!).  5&33 is one of the places you love everything about. If I had to describe it in a few words, I would use inspiring, fresh, and chic.  

SkyLounge Amsterdam

Just like every metropolis, Amsterdam has its SkyLounge rooftop bar with a beautiful terrace and breathtaking view of the city. It’s on the 11th floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton, just a few steps from Amsterdam’s Central Station. I first visited the bar for after-work drinks with colleagues and in an instant I fell completely in love with it. Don’t forget to try the cocktails! ‘Meihana’ comes in a coconut shell (unfortunately not a real one) and tastes amazing. Although I very much enjoy the night view, the bar is a great place to go to any time of the day. It is perfect for coffee, lunch, or a quick bite.
