Let’s talk about Amsterdam! While living most of my life in the south of the Netherlands, Amsterdam stole my heart already when I was 4 yrs old because my mother took me with her on her trips. Luckily a few years back I had to opportunity to live a few months in Amsterdam for my internship. I had the time of my life! But school and reality called me back and living in Amsterdam was only a memory.
After working my ass off and graduating 2 years back I knew I would end up in Amsterdam some day. At the moment, I’m in Amsterdam (almost) every week for meetings, events and work and I couldn’t be happier about it. Finding new spots and meeting people in one of my favorite cities is what I love about it. And to make this all more easier, there’s now an app for that.
Recently I came across mbrace (don’t forget to check their blog) that just launched in the Netherlands, where I can meet inspiring people who are in the same city as you. The coolest part of this app is the challenge feature where I can ask/ or answer questions of others and in this way I get to know someone and get updated about the coolest spots at the same time. Getting updated by insiders of a city is the best thing there is, don’t you think?
That’s why I love to share my favorite spots to meet in Amsterdam:
HAY/Koffie Salon – Spuistraat 281abc – what’s better to grab a coffee and meet people while enjoying the HAY store at the same time
Maison Rika – Oude Spiegelstraat 12 – this lifestyle store is at a corner in the middle of the 9 streets area where it’s filled with great places to meet.
Athenaeum – Spui 14-16 – by far my favorite book (magazine) store in Amsterdam where you can dive into your favorite books and grab a coffee just somewhere around the corner.
Down below I also shared some low key and spring style ideas for coffee meetings in Amsterdam. Get inspired!
