The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Behave Yourself in Amsterdam


5. An Oddball Day


Take the bus or tram out to Westergasfabriek, a former gasworks that has evolved from building site to creative hub and hip hangout spot. As well as lounging in its park, you can slurp pumpkin-and-sweet-potato soup at the new Bakkerswinkel; eat experimentally at just-opened food-design studio Proef; and relax at Pacific Parc, a bar with D.J. booth and 360-degree open fireplace.
