The Avocado Show opens up The Backstage

Since we wrote about the opening of avocado restaurant The Avocado Show in Amsterdam, it’s been busy times for the 3 entrepreneurs. They knew it would probably be a succes, but they had never dreamed of the international coverage it has gotten so far. David Wolfe, Vice, ELLE and other international platforms have all posted about this popular restaurant and before they knew it, people from all over the world wanted to experience the first avocado restaurant in the world. They are planning to expand in several countries around the world so there might be an Avocado Show near you in 2018!



Neighbours complained that their street is always packed with people, so they came up with a solution

Extremely Populair
Even before it opened, avocado lovers spend the night in front of the doors to be the first ones to check it out. Talking about dedication! But the restaurant’s popularity isn’t to everybody’s joy. Neighbours complained that their street is always packed with people day and night, to try the amazing menu. Innovating as they are, they came up with a solution. The Backstage. The Backstage is a pop-up avocado store situated pretty much next door to The Avocado Show, so people can shop, and find perfectly ready to eat avocado’s at an avocado wall (yes, no more pinching in the supermarket!). Meanwhile you’re buddy or lover can wait to be seated without annoying the neighbourhood. Briljant. The Backstage will have a similar interior (pink chairs yehess!), and will sell tons of avocado goodies and not just the edible ones. You are able to buy pins, cookbooks, bags, inflatable avocado’s and merchandise.

The Backstage is now open but remember, keep coming for The Avocado Show though…they don’t want another line at the door.. 😉

7 x New Hotspots in Amsterdam this July

This month, Amsterdam is welcoming several new hotspots we just can’t ignore. Whether it’s food, a lively new bar or a pop up. We have them lined up for you. Where will we see you this month?

Bar7 by Showpony (Pop Up)
If you’re into parties, you may have heard of Showpony Productions. They manage events and beautiful hostesses to give a party that extra boost. They are 7 years old this year so to celebrate in Showpony style, they are opening up a pop-up bar that will be around for the next 3 months. What to expect? Beautiful women, nice cocktails, funky tunes and a great vibe. Reguliersdwarsstraat 37, Website

De Tulp
Located on the recently renovated Marie Heineken Square, De Tulp is a new tropical bar in De Pijp district. Come here for drinks (they serve Jajem Jenever!) and a bite to eat whilst enjoying the jungle fever. There is a nice space to sit outside and people without a garden are going to love this place! They are open every Tuesday till Sunday until the early hours. Marie Heinekenplein 33, Website



Hoed en Krelis
Walk a bit further and you will also find this new hotspot in De Pijp. They have just opened their doors so we haven’t even had the chance to pass by yet but the interior and menu already makes us happy. Seasonal vegetables are the headliners in this restaurant but they also serve fish and meat. They are open everyday from 9am till close. Ferdinand Bolstraat 58 – 60, Website

The Backstage by The Avocado Show
This is a clever little project from the immensely popular Avocado Show. All we can say now is, that it will be near the Avocado Show’s location and it will be a shop and more…We will let you know when it will open, but we think you can expect it somewhere this month! Read here about the Avocado Show.


Five Brothers Fat, Champagneria
They are bringing Barcelona to Amsterdam and we like it! Enjoy Spanish dishes, cava and champagne until late. The food menu will change every month so there is enough reason to come back. (They had us at champagne..) The opening should be within the next 2 weeks so keep an eye on their Facebook Page. De Clerqstraat 56, Website


And suddenly it was there, this new Asian Fine Dining cusine from one of Amsterdam’s most famous hospitality entrepreneur Casper Reinders and newcomer Jeabby Chaiyasat. Influenced by the Thai and Japanese cusine, this is another Asian jewel in Amsterdam. Good news, there is an outside terras! It’s perfect for a dinner that turns into cocktails with your friends. Check this place out! Spuistraat 3G/H, Website


Dr. Blend
We love this healthy juice and food bar! This new and second location is right in the heart of Amsterdam West so you can easily pop by to get your daily vitamins! Besides all the delicious juices and smoothies, they also serve amazing salads, sandwiches and wraps. Jan PieterHeije 131B, Website
