Café Américain

The famous Café Américain in the Amsterdam American Hotel on the busy Leidseplein has been refurbished by Studio Linse, treasuring the old, introducing the new. This new balance of timelessness is a contemporary tribute to this location that has played such a vibrant role in the past century as thé place to meet and debate, to drink and eat, dance and celebrate. All furniture has been replaced, a collection of photo’s of people and events throughout the years tells the story of this listed building while light colours make the unique Art Nouveau-detailling stand out more than ever.
