Sir Adam, Text: Nina Prehofer
The Dutch capital is so much more than just canals and coffee shops. At the Sir Adam we’re able to live the unmistakable Amsterdam lifestyle.
Amsterdam has more bikes than inhabitants – to be precise, there are around 880,000 bikes for just under 840,000 people. So it’s no wonder that even dogs, floor lamps and offspring are transported by pedal power in this European city. But Amsterdam is so much more than that. The city is a music hotspot, a creative centre and a design mecca.
Sir adam rocks out
At the fashionable A’DAM Tower in the north of the city, the Sir Adam design hotel greets its guests with cool industrial chic and musical flair. The neighbours? None other than Massive Music, Sony Music, Wink and a host of young creative agencies with a passion for music.
The fact that music is in the air here is no accident – every room features a different vinyl to provide the soundtrack for an evening with a chilled drink. Extras like Corsley record players and electric guitars in the rooms are sure to make it difficult for music lovers to leave their temporary home.
But they should, because the tower itself contains highlights such as the highest swing in Europe, cool cuisine at The Butcher Social Club and a nightclub where you can dance the night away.
That’s how to do Amsterdam
So if you want to get to know the city of canals from more than just a tourist’s perspective, you’ll be well looked after at either of the Sir hotels. Here you’ll manage to sneak an exclusive look behind the scenes of Amsterdam, if you want – thank goodness for the local hosts. But beware: once you’ve been a guest at the Sir Adam, you’ll know how difficult it can be to leave the amazing rooms. But it’s worth it – we promise!
