“If you like beer you should definitely visit café Gollem. They have so many different kind of beers! Their location on the Overtoom is just around the corner from the Uptown and has a lot of seats and a terrace outside as well. Proost!”
“The Vondelbunker is an old bunker and located just across the street from the Uptown, under the Vondelpark bridge. It's an underground (literally!) club with weekly art expos, alternative theatre and of course rocking parties. Find the iron door and you're in!”

“One of my favourite places in Amsterdam is Pllek. It's a little beach in the north where you can eat, drink and chill. There is a really nice atmosphere and I really like the industrial vibe of the north. Also, the ferry to go there is for free!”
