Bars, restaurants & shops

The centre of Amsterdam is one of those places where you can't swing a cat around without hitting a cosy little 'brown café' or a restaurant with an exquisite exotic kitchen.

Around the corner of the theatre is a small bar where you can have a cheap and simple meal. And there are other restaurants in the area, such as Chinese or Japanese. On Saturday there is a small supermarket open next to the theatre, and a small shopping area with some stores such as a larger supermarket, bakery, drycleaner and drugstore is within walking distance. For more extensive shopping you can always take a streetcar downtown and shop till you drop at the wonderful old center of Amsterdam, or at the more modern shopping center in Amstelveen.
