8 x weekend tips for Amsterdam/ 5&33
1. Lobster Thursday – 5&33
Every thursday 5&33 is the place to be for a delicious lobster fest! And although this is not officially the weekend yet, it deserves a spot on the list! The price of a 2-course-menu including a glass of bubbles is €35. 5&33 is a cosy spot, where they serve dangerously good cocktails and where the fire is always on. While you enjoy your lobster pasta al dente, you listen to Drake & Raphael Saadiq! Great spot for a date…
