  WHAT’S LIVING IN Apollobuurt LIKE?

The mostly residential neighborhood of Apolloburt is nestled between Oud Zuid and the business area Zuidas. The main chunk of it was developed in the 1930s, as part of the ambitious ‘Plan Zuid’ by the renowned architect Hendrik Petrus Berlage.

His signature style – stately apartment blocks of typical Amsterdam School design, built around large courtyard gardens – is the dominant type of housing you'll find. However, newer additions, just south of The Stadionkade for instance, feature 1950s and 1960s blocks of flats mixed with large townhouses and imposing villas from the same era.

The main shopping street is Beethovenstraat. This is a pleasant wide street with a variety of boutiques, specialty shops, coffee houses, and a good selection of restaurants.

Because of the proximity to the city, the business district, train and road links to the airport and other parts of the country, this area is in high demand with both locals and expats. And because of the suburban feel and often larger homes, it’s most popular with families. They praise the safety and great schools, including the International School of Amsterdam.

Amsterdam’s most famous comedy club, Toomler, is located next door to the Hilton Hotel. In fact, its premises are part of the Hilton’s structural basement. Many great names in Dutch comedy got their first break here. Make sure to catch an open mic here, so you can say you were there the next time.  Or check out their international programming to see if anyone from back home is performing. Established names love to perform here because of the laid back atmosphere and crowd.

As their own website reads, young and old alike love it here. This no nonsense bar and restaurant has a simple but tasty menu and serves great coffee. The terrace is a much-loved spot in summer and is great for people watching.

BBROOD

The elevator pitch of BBROOD is simple: tasty, simple and 100% natural and homemade sourdough and leavened bread. They have several branches in Amsterdam, but also, for some reason, in Uganda and Rwanda.

Pelger

Originally from The Hague, the Pelger brand is relatively new in Amsterdam. The shop opened its doors in 2007 but is already a favorite for men who prefer a classic style. They sell clothing and accessories from high-end quality brands, and have their own workshop where they produce tailor-made or made to measure suits.
