Analogue Guide Amsterdam

Author(s): Alana Stone

Travel Guides

Analogue Guides are a series of curated city guidebooks featuring high-quality, low-key venues distilled through the lens of the neighborhood. Each neighborhood is complemented by a concise set of sophisticated listings, including restaurants, cafes, bars, hotels, and serendipitous finds, all illustrated with photographs. The listings are supplemented by user-friendly maps to facilitate navigation of the cityscape. By highlighting aspects of the urban patina frequently lost under the corporate veil of large restaurant groups and ubiquitous chains, the mood and feel of each unique city is captured. The result is a compact, efficient manual celebrating the ingenuity of the contemporary metropolis.Undeterred by its relatively modest size and location below sea level, Amsterdam has been able to establish itself as one of Europe's most important cities. Although it is still much associated with hordes of rain-gear-clad tourists looking to catch a glimpse of its freewheeling ways, efforts have been made to reign in the excesses. The "De Wallen" red-light district has seen a new wave of civic life, including the emergence of boutiques and design outlets. Amsterdam has also recently discovered its northern borough on the opposite bank of the IJ lake, where warehouses provide new space for artists and creative types. The guide features the best that this maritime city has to offer, from the classic highlights of the canal belt to the neighborhood treasures beyond.
