LOFT Amsterdam | Eastern Docklands area (CLOSED)


LOFT Amsterdam recently opened their doors in one of the industrial buildings at KNSM laan on the KNSM island, another great addition to the few selected stores in the same street like Sissy Boy Homeland, Pols Potten and children department store Keet aan Huis. The Eastern Docklands is a great not to crowded residential area. As the formal harbour of Amsterdam, the North America line is still departing from here and many huge cruise ships can be seen from time to time. The many old industrial buildings and warehouses are perfectly blending with modern architecture on the different peninsulas and make the area to what it is.

LOFT Amsterdam offers a great selection of Scandinavian design and home accessories, Dutch design and fair trade home and fashion brands. In the basement larger interior items are placed in a home-like setting. More pictures can be found at my Interior design blog Vosgesparis

Happy Happy Joy Joy | Eastern Docklands area


On Amsterdam Next we occasionally cover a few lunch spots because of the great interior and because it's always a good idea to combine shopping and lunch. Happy Happy Joy Joy is the latest dinner and lunch spot at the Eastern Harbour area, combine it with a visit to Bed Habits across the street, and one of the many places to be found in our Amsterdam Next city guide App. Happy Happy Joy Joy offers a cheerful collection of colours and typical Asian flavours in a lively atmosphere. The restaurant has a large deck and garden for long summer nights. Be sure to make a reservation as it is pretty populair.
