Conservatorium Hotel x Café Nol | Five-star Dutch ‘gezelligheid’ during Hotelnacht

5-1-2023

  • Conservatorium HotelConservatorium Hotel
  • Café NolCafé Nol

Five-star Dutch gezelligheid (a word hard to describe but cosiness comes near) during the tenth edition of the Hotelnacht in Amsterdam, on 14 and 15 January 2023 at the Conservatorium Hotel in cooperation with Café Nol, the most famous café in the Jordaan neighbourhood in Amsterdam. For this ode to the capital’s nightlife, the hotel will transform its Taiko Bar into an Amsterdam pub. Hotelnacht visitors and hotel guests will enjoy Dutch hits, culminating in a performance by Café Nol’s regular folk singer. Chef Schilo van Coevorden will present his variation on the old Dutch bittergarnituur this evening: a langoustine frikandel with green curry and caviar, a wagyu beef frikandel and his award-winning cheese soufflé with black truffle. At the bar, too, guests briefly imagine themselves in the Jordaan with a cold glass of beer, a kopstootje or a special Jenever cocktail provided by the world’s oldest cocktail brand Lucas Bols (from Amsterdam).

Bumper cars, disco balls and kebabs at a wedding. It is a given nowadays that there is a queue of years at almost all wedding venues. That is why engaged couples sometimes resort to less conventional venues. But one couple took the definition of a wedding location very liberally last weekend. They said yes on Saturday in a kebab store, Karma Kebab, in Utrecht.

An extraordinary location to get married, isn’t it? Would you like to get married here and enjoy a plant-based kebab as dinner? Unconventional anyway!

We are almost in one of the busiest and, in our opinion, one of the coziest periods of the year for the hospitality industry. And we can finally welcome guests for Christmas again!

Most hotels and restaurants are already busy thinking about the decorations, we have even seen the most beautiful Christmas hotel of the Netherlands on Instagram, ready to receive their guests! We have also seen a lot of newsletters with delicious menus and it’s great to notice that ordering Christmas dinners to go remains possible at many restaurants in addition to reserving a table! Last year we created a digital Christmas inspiration booklet with the biggest trend of that year; the ‘Christmas drive thru’. Of course we had to create another list this year, including the recurring ‘tree lighting’ ceremony, looking on Pinterest for your decorations, Christmas atmosphere in your hotel room, an ‘Electric Bingo’ in Christmas atmosphere and much more Christmas inspiration.
