A’DAM Toren, a new multi-venue tower, is the latest addition to Amsterdam’s creative hub, where a former shipyard and warehouses have been transformed into the city’s coolest waterfront districtNungwi Village
The landmark tower, Toren Overhoeks, will reopen in early May as A’DAM Toren – Amsterdam Dance And Music. The former home of Shell, the 22-storey waterfront tower will have clubs, bars, cafes, a revolving restaurant, a 360-degree observation deck, offices and a 110-room hotel, Sir Adam, run by the people behind luxury boutique hotel Sir Albert, also in Amsterdam. The trio at the helm of A’DAM Toren – Sander Groet, Duncan Stutterheim and Hans Brouwer – are well known in the Dutch music and events scene and a host of companies in the creative industry have signed up for the office space. Expect a few quirks: a giant swing hanging from the top-floor observation deck, clubs on both the top and bottom floors, graffiti in the car park and the two-floor “Loft”, with seven-metre-high windows, a bar and DJ booth, which promises to be the hippest hotel suite in the city.
