Zoom up to the Volkshotel's 7th floor (located in the former Volkskrant newspaper office) for the hotel bar (open to nonguests) with one of the best views in town. A creative-folk and hipster magnet, there are few better places for a beer or cocktail than this slice of urban cool. On weekend nights, it morphs into a fresh-beat dance club.
Feeling wild? Sneak up to the roof for a dip in one of the hot tubs.
The Wibautstraat metro stop is a stone's throw away; follow signs saying 'Gijsbrecht van Aemstelstraat' as you exit the station.
