Amsterdam-Old City Centre
May 11, 2018
The canal-front Hannekes Boom mixes a hip aesthetic with a sense of history. The interior of this bar-cafe is a patchwork of salvaged and recycled materials which gives the place a homey, relaxed vibe. Well-located behind Central Station, there’s a mooring space outside what was once a seventeenth century guardhouse where one can hitch one’s boat. Chilled out during the day, the atmosphere gets livelier as the sun sets. The place becomes more club-like with live music and DJs and the crowd are quick to take to the dance-floor.
