If industrial chic is your style, then this is the ‘hood for you. With a name literally meaning “lumber port,” this area is situated along the IJ river in Amsterdam’s western port. The local eateries reflect the maritime surroundings—one notably hip restaurant is located in a converted 1920’s ferry, while another bistro is known for their cocktails and late-night activity. If you’re looking for an intimate night of homestyle cooking, a local eatery serves market-driven, four-course meals amongst checkered tablecloths and an open kitchen. For a neighborhood that has the grit of the ports in its periphery, these bars and restaurants will beckon you in with an inviting coziness.
