Originally designed by HP Berlage, the architect who created the main square, this small part of western Amsterdam is a community-oriented area that packs a culinary punch. With an abundance of gastropubs, it’s as easy to find a solid burger as it is to find traditional Dutch pancakes. And with a bustling afterwork scene, there are many cafes abuzz with energy as the night gets underway. A Kevin Bacon-themed bar proves the area has a sense of humor, and an indoor food market encourages patrons to try whatever piques your interest. Fun, hip and eclectically delicious, this is definitely an area for urban explorers.
