Bar Botanique | Eerste Van Swindenstraat 581

This bar hit Amsterdam just recently and if you must trust the crowd, this is the place to be. I guess the name says it all. Botanique all the way and covered in plants, just the way we like it.

Wildernis | Bilderdijkstraat 165

Wildernis is the only store in this list and you can actually leave the place with plants. That’s why it belongs in this list. What better place to drink your coffee surrounded by your plant friends. More pictures and a review about this store can be found HERE.


Zoku | Weesperstraat 105

Perfect place for meetings a bit of flex working.  It includes a greenhouse and a rooftop garden on top of the hotel. They serve an all-in very healthy lunch and there are plenty of games in case you need a break. Check their program as they host music nights too!

PARK Cafe Restaurant | Oosterpark

Opened just a year ago is PARK, the new restaurant connected to Hotel Arena. Their feed promises us a lot of plants and lovely food coming our way with a view on the Oosterpark. Stay tuned for more!

De Cantina, Rijk van de Keizer | Joris van Den Berghweg 107

Hidden in Nieuw West and reachable after a bike ride you’ll find this green oasis. Well known as the perfect place to host your wedding party and they organize some lovely public dinners too. All the way in the back next to the water you’ll find Cantina. Glass of lemonade and a piece of cake, what more do we need? Chilling in have a car or the hang mock. Good times guaranteed.


Hortus Botanicus VU | Van der Boechorststraat 8

Zuidas Botanical Garden, known since 2016 as Hortus Botanicus VU University Amsterdam, is a botanical garden in South Amsterdam. The garden is located between the VU medical center and the university campus, in the otherwise mostly business environment of the Zuidas.
