Hi! My name is Boy Glansbeek, 28 years old and living in Amsterdam. I’m the Head of Sales at Lloyd Hotel and responsible for the commercial activities, acquisition and relationship management. In my spare time I highly value variety; finding peace in the city parks and forest or exploring the city’s bubbly nightlife. Amsterdam has it all for me! What’s my ultimate day?
The place to start the day. You can enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch here. They are located near Lloyd at the gardens of the Hoftuin, or at the heart of Amsterdam South. I can highly recommend the Forrest Dwellers (poached egg with mixed mushrooms).
Yoga session at… Conscious Club
You can follow amazing yoga classes here in an inspiring and peaceful ambiance. Conscious Club is the first climate neutral canal house in Amsterdam. Check out their website for special events. Tip: try the Deep Guided Meditation.
Afternoon walk through… The 9 Little Streets
You can find the ‘9 Little Streets’ in the heart of the canal district. Between Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht, Herengracht and Singel. There are some amazing shops here (such as Skins Cosmetics, Velour Amsterdam and ZIpper). Voor a quick lunch I go to The Lebanese Sajeria, delicious! If you have space left, you need to try the famous ‘Van Stapele’ chocolate cookie.
Museum at… De Nieuwe Kerk
De Nieuwe Kerk located right off Dam Square is a beautiful church. They have been known for high-profile exhibitions about art and photography. My favourite exhibition: World Press Photo (from April 13th until July 7th, 2019).
Cocktail o’clock at…Hiding in Plain Sight
A unique location with a unique menu! The bar team is very kind, service minded and create (to my taste) the best cocktails in town. The ambiance is really intimate and cozy.
