The neighbourhood
Neighbourhood is very quiet but still close to all the attractions and buzz that Amsterdam has to offer. For my taste perfect combination of tranquility and excitement. There’s a big grocery store just around the corner (Albert Heijn) which is open daily till 10pm.

Central Station, the Dam Square, the famous canals, museums ‘t Schip, great restaurants, and other cultural attractions are at walking/biking distance. You are less than 2 minutes’ walk from the Westerpark. The Westerpark area derives its name from the modern park, where there's always something going on. Head to Westerpark and you'll find trendy cafés, charming eateries, cutting-edge galleries, a cinema and an avant garde club!

About the Westerpark
There's always plenty to do at Westerpark, the site of the city's former gasworks. Go to De Bakkerswinkel for breakfast, high tea or a sandwich with traditional bread in relaxed surroundings. A little further on you'll find Pacific Parc, where you can eat, drink and dance from morning till late. Savour Algerian dishes at nomadic restaurant Rainarai with its terrace on the quayside. Another popular terrace is that at WestergasTerras with its cascading pond, the eatery also boasts a cosy interior with fireplace for when the sun goes down. Make a day of it and take in a film at Het Ketelhuis, a unique cinema primarily showing Dutch (but also English) films.
A little further on past Culture Park Westergasfabriek, on the Watertorenplein, is Cafe-Restaurant Amsterdam in a cavernous engine room from 1900. An unusual place serving tasty and inexpensive food.
