The favored district for young and affluent creative artists, architects, and musicians, De Pijp is an appealing melting pot of cultures, apparent in its vast selection of ethnic restaurants and colorful shops.
By night, the De Pijp area attracts stylish urban trendsetters from all over Amsterdam who gather to socialize at the lively corner wine and cocktail bars just off Albert Cuypstraat and at the buzzing beer joints that line Ferdinand Bolstraat.
Although the venues in this moderately priced neighborhood do tend to close down earlier than those in other areas, De Pijp is nonetheless an ideal place for leisurely afternoons at the terrace cafés or low-key evenings of cocktails and conversation.
