If you’re attending State Of The Map, chances are that you’ll be in Amsterdam by Thursday night. What better way start off your SOTM weekend than to join fellow attendees for some pre-conference drinks? We picked a great place for that: the bustling Nieuwmarkt square (map) in the heart of the old city.
Members of the SOTM organisation team will be at ‘De Waag’ bar / restaurant to meet you. It’s the big building with the towers right in the middle of the square. If the weather is as nice as it has been the last couple of days, we’ll probably be outside
If you want to have dinner nearby beforehand, there’s a lot of options. De Waag itself is OK but quite pricey. Excellent and cheap Chinese and Thai food is to be had on Zeedijk, just off the square. Nieuwmarkt itself is home to ‘café Bern’ – arguably the best Swiss cheese fondue outside of Switzerland, as well as ‘Plein 26′, the place to go for Dutch fast food. Several of the other bars on Nieuwmarkt serve food as well.
See you Thursday from 8pm on!
