Sunny hideaway – Escobar
Entering gastro-tapasbar ESCOBAR (where we’ve had dinner before) almost feels as though you’re leaving the country and entering a tropical paradise. Have a seat at the big wooden work tables or the ‘roofterrace’. When the sunlight flows through the big doors, it almost feels as if you’re on a work-holiday. Snack from the small dishes or go for a Spanish sandwich for lunch. Escobar is perfect for the days when you don’t have any inspiration or need a bit of warmth to finish your to do’s.
The meeting location – Spingaren
Sometimes a table isn’t enough because you’re giving a workshop, organizing network drinks or presenting product presentation. Restaurant Spingaren offers different spaces and options for 20 persons. The interior has split about 250 settings into different spaces where the open and Scandinavian design with a green/grey colour scheme and unfinished walls perfectly fit.
Central flex working – Wyers Bar & Restaurant
Looking for a nice place close to Central Station where we tried amazing burgers before? Then restaurant Wyers in the beautiful Kimpton de Witt hotel on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal is the place to be. This restaurant is open from the early morning until late at night and the menu is filled with nice comfort food. Need some change in setting? Move to the comfortable couch in the stylish lobby and spoil yourself with a good cocktail at the House Bar.
