“One of the most popular bars of Amsterdam East, located opposite of the Oosterpark. It's always busy here. Sit down on the wooden benches and before you know it you will be chatting a whole evening with a group of pleasant strangers. Regarding the menu: you do come here for the specialty beer and the fried chicken.”

“There is a lot to see and do in Amsterdam, all depending on your taste. If we were in the neighborhood, you could run into us and other locals at Roest. If the weather is nice, nothing beats Amsterdam Roest (5-10 min walk) at Jacob Bontiusplaats. At an old factory location, Roest has a pseudo beach area, a rough edged arty atmosphere and plenty of cold drinks.”
