AMSTERDAM NEXT | CITY GUIDE

Utrechtsestraat + Rembrandtplein


Utrechtsestraat |see on map| is a local and not to busy shopping street with grocery stores for daily shopping mixed with clothes, shoes specialist shops and a few concept stores... all being unique and small. It's a quiet street with a small pavement and a beautiful view on the canals as well. 

Read a summery of my favourite shops and locations and scroll down for more detailed info, links to blogposts, pictures and opening hours of the specific locations... I am still adding more detailed info on each location, so check back for more soon.



As for my favourite places to shop for your interior Mobilia is my absolute favourite at Utrechtsestraat, they sell a wide range of furniture and lots of Scandinavian accessories and smaller items. At Sissy boy you can also shop for clothes and beauty products. More Jan, mini concept store MaisonNL and Zenza where you can shop for Moroccan Lifestyle. If you like music Concerto is there for you with new and second hand records and a coffee corner.


If you walk through Utrechtsestraat have a look at some great shop interiors as well.. Lot of shops in Amsterdam have developed a great sense of style. Many
 old buildings in the center have hidden treasures behind modern plastered walls and over the last few years many of them are shown again giving these shops a raw and industrial character that I love a lot.

But also newer concrete walls are left raw and unfinished, like Biological Supermarket 
Marqt on the first corner of Utrechtsestraat /Keizersgracht situated in the basement of a former Bank building, lots of concrete and lots of delicious food. 

Next to
Marqt on the corner with Rembrandtplein a huge Starbucks opened its doors with again an amazing interior. Around the corner in Amstelstraat you wil find more delicious coffee at The Coffee Company and if you love Japanese food and sushi there is a Wagamama restaurant.


Zenza - Marqt - Bellerose - Sissy Boy
Bellerose store 2 is well worth visiting both for the products and the great styling of the shop. When reaching the end of the street you'll find Amsterdam's smallest trift shop on your left hand at Kerkstraat 354 just a few houses from the corner. On your right hand walking into Kerkstraat you reach Amstelveld a square dominated by a white wooden church. On monday morning there is a flowermarket
