Truffle Dinner at 5&33
It’s the time of the year for hearty comfort food. Restaurant and bar 5&33, located right across from Central Station, will satisfy your cravings with a special truffle menu!

Ask the sommelier for the perfect pairing.
With the temperatures dropping, curling up with a drink at a cozy bar sounds like a perfect way to spend your weekend to us. With a rich history in beer brewing and distilling of other beverages like Gin, it’s only normal that Amsterdam has a lot to offer when it comes to its bar scene. Whether you like it fancy or laid-back, there is something for all. Cocktails at Door74 or karaoke and dancing at the Chin Chin Club.
