MUSEUM DISTRICT AMSTERDAM

Where to eat, drink and shop among the waterways in Amsterdam’s enchanting city center.

curated by

Georgi Akirov of Conservatorium Hotel

In recent years Amsterdam has seen a creative revival that could rival the Dutch Golden Age. New modernist buildings are springing up among the stone arches, picturesque waterways and antedeluvian canal houses of the enchanting city center, home to an ever-expanding array of hip boutiques, chic nightspots and daring restaurants. Who better to give us the tour than Georgi Akirov, whose game-changing Conservatorium Hotel is one of the Museum District's hottest new commodities.
