5&33, the Netherlands best hotel bar

There is something about hotel bars, makes you feel like your on holiday. I love the international setting, the foreign languages you hear and then have an amazing drink or two with of course a little snack too. I love going to the Sky Lounge in Amsterdam too, because they have an amazing view and the drinks are to die for.

Today I talk to you about another hotspot: 5&33 situated in the Art Hotel in Amsterdam. It got its name from the fact that its situated on a corner,  Martelaarsgracht 5 and Prins Hendrikkade 33. Creative name he! Good to know is that its an award winning hotel bar; yes they won a Red & Grey award for best hotel bar in the Netherlands. Not only do they serve you with the best cocktails and great food, there is also a lot of art to entertain you while you sip on your drink. The interactive curtain with projections was something I had never seen before. Seriously a feast to your eyes.

In the restaurant they serve you Mediterranean style dishes you can share. Be sure to have the anti pasti platter with cheeses and sausages, oh and the burata melted on my tongue. I couldn’t get enough of the braised ox cheeks, mashed potatoes & wild mushrooms. Also take the soft shell crab and oh my the zucchini fritti, it was my favorite of the evening. Zucchini fries dipped in an amazing fritto misto like batter. To pair all of this lovely food, I had a good glass of wine, it was the Nero D’Avola, an amazing Sicilian wine.
