Drinks & Nightlife
Typical Dutch Bruin cafe (pub), with basic food (soup, toasties etc.) Large sunny terrace next to the Sluis (canal lock). Much loved by the well-to-do locals, so much so that they grouped together and bought it when it was put up for sale, to save it from becoming yet another €1 million house on this most beautiful stretch of the Nieuwendammerdijk

Grungy underground bar & restaurant. Hip kids of all ages. Great food, after 10-11pm the tables get cleared away, the lights go down and it turns into more of a late night bar / club. Try one of the punches. Also good for skateboarding during the day - has a 3 sided pool ramp.

Food Scene
Fantastic, authentic wood-oven pizzas, made by young and friendly Sardinians. Other Sardinian goodies also for sale. Mainly take-away, but there are a couple of basic tables to eat if you can't wait until you get home.

Landmarkt is a farmer's market style supermarket with a wide selection of great food, all local when possible. But it also has it's own cafe / restaurant which makes delicious food from the produce in the supermarket. It's no-frills (you're in a supermarket!), but cosy and with good service. You can also buy dishes made in the kitchen to have at home. The octopus and the quiche are both recommended!

Great restaurant in a large industrial space. Were the pioneers in making a forgotten industrial wasteland hip 12 years ago. Now the area has multiple pop-up bars and restaurants and gentrification is in full swing, but this continues to serve good food in an exciting setting.

Good Mexican Restaurant Taqueria and Mezcaleria, in a rough & ready setting. Dishes are delicious but quite small - the idea is to order a few.

In our opinion, the best (wood oven) pizzas in Amsterdam! Starter and side dishes are really good too, plus a selection of natural wines. Great restaurant in a big old industrial space, with spaces for pool & ping pong tables and occasional art shows - perfect for families too. Open Wednesday - Monday (6 nights a week) ** LOCATION CHANGED - NOW AT PAPAVERWEG 25 **

Entertainment & Activities
Temporary cinema in an old industrial building. Good selection of recent films, including kid's films. Done by the owners of Hotel de Goudfazant (a restaurant a few doors down), so there's also a restaurant here which serves great small dishes mainly cooked in the huge wood-fired oven. There's an interesting selection of wine (unfiltered etc.) We love it here.

Arts & Culture
Amsterdam's film museum housed in an amazing futuristic building on the bank of the river Ij opposite Central Station. Fantastic exhibitions covering covering a director's whole oeuvre, or contemporary film-based art. Plus a full programme of films both classic and new for young & old. There's also a great bar / restaurant with an outside terrace overlooking the river.
