“The SuperClub is more than just a restaurant, it is also a club, bar and gallery. Supperclub brings you a night full of spectacle, from an exciting 5 course surprise menu to exhilarating music, occasional performances to 260 degrees visuals, everyone plays a role, even you! Wear your good socks because when you step through the silver door of the old theatre hall and lay on the crisp white beds, you’ll be kicking off your shoes. www.supperclub.amsterdam/en ”

Supermarket
“The nearest area to pop by to grab groceries. This outlet is notorious for the overwhelming number of tourists that visit each day. If you are looking for a quieter outlet, it would be best to head downwards towards Dam Square. ”
