The Holiday Guide


After a year like this, we can honestly say we’ve never been more excited for the holidays. Though things will likely look a little bit different – no extended family celebrations, no office Christmas party – we’re still planning to celebrate in style. We’re just going to have to get creative!

Here are a few of our brightest ideas for how to make the most of the festive season.

For those who are in for a change of scenery…

Book a room at Pulitzer Amsterdam to indulge in their 10 days of Christmas. Because 10 is most definitely better than three, right? From December 23rd until January 1st, the Pulitzer is pulling out all the stops and leaving no corner undecorated. Whether you’re using the hotel as a jumping off point for some last-minute shopping in the neighbourhood or don’t want to step foot outside, there’s something for everyone. Have a drink or two at Pulitzer’s Bar or tuck into a Christmassy meal at Jansz. The world is your oyster. For just €279, you’ll get an overnight stay, a four-course festive feast and a special surprise in your room. Better book quickly before it all sells out!

For those who seriously want to boogie…

Get ready to party – on a bike, of course. While we can’t go to the clubs for a night out just yet (and have an inkling we won’t be able to for some time), we can still party at clubs like Marktkantine and Escape. Forget your typical, disappointing New Year’s Eve plans. Book your bike at one of our Roclubs and get ready to dance, sweat and smile.

For those who are craving a Chef’s Table-worthy meal…

Turn your own kitchen into a Michelin-star restaurant and order one of the many fantastic at-home dining packages our city’s best are offering. No matter what kind of food you’re craving, you’ll be sure to find something delicious and delightful. And to make things even more irresistible, many of the restaurants have crafted special festive meals to make this the best Christmas ever. Have choice paralysis? We get it! Some of our favourites are Scheepskameel, Kaagman & Kortekaas, Restaurant Watergang, Buffet van Odette, Domenica and Coba Taqueria.

For those who are itching to travel…

Pretend you’ve flown the coop and escaped to California with a very special Christmas at Kimpton de Witt. This urban oasis is the perfect place to celebrate the holidays, especially when you make a reservation at their recently opened restaurant, Celia. Everything on the menu is light, fresh and utterly craveable, in typical California style. On the 24th, 25th and 26th of December, you can book in at Kimpton de Witt for just €199. A room isn’t all you’ll get! Expect breakfast in bed, cocktails in your room, dinner at Celia and free parking. Sound like a plan to you? Ring them (+31 20 52 11 888) or send an email to

Happy Holidays, Ro’fam! We can’t wait to celebrate with you.
