    Supperclub - Club | Restaurant in Amsterdam.
    Apr 27, 2013 Great dining experience, but make sure you choose the right night to go! "I’d heard a lot about Supperclub from various locals and reviews so my expectations were high, as were my nerves about choosing the right outfit in order to blend in with all the super-cool hipsters that apparently hang out there. In the end I needn’t have worried as the vibe was pretty chilled out. My friend and I did choose to go on a Sunday though, which is one of their quieter nights. The adventure began as soon as we arrived. Situated down a side street close to the tourist spot of Dam Square, the only sign of this restaurant is a large wooden door with a very small name plaque. After ringing the bell and invited in, we were taken to our ‘table’ which was in fact a large bed. It did feel a little bit awkward at first, as when you’re sharing a large mattress with several other diners, it poses some challenges. Especially when trying to exit the bed gracefully and with all your dinner still on the plate! The staff were incredibly friendly though so after a while, it became easy to relax. The food was delicious and interesting (one of my courses was served in a bag with a pair of scissors!) and the menu had no rules…it wasn’t set out in the traditional starter, main, dessert fashion. You could simply order what you wanted when you wanted. It was a little bit on the pricey side though, so not a place to go if you’re on a budget. Throughout the meal we were entertained by various performers and acts including a violinist who played along with some ambient electronic music. As there were so few people dining there, it created a very intimate atmosphere. We were even offered a massage!! All in all it was a great, chilled out dining experience. The food was on the pricey side, but worth it I’d say. It wasn’t quite the raucous party I’d heard it to be and that I’d hoped for, so I would like to go back another time on a Saturday night. " hide

    Sketch - Bar | Lounge | Restaurant in London.
    Apr 27, 2013 Afternoon tea will never be the same again! "Sketch is certainly a unique dining experience. Walking through the door is immediately like taking a tumble down the rabbit hole and ending up at the Mad Hatter’s tea party. A perfect place for afternoon tea, the parlour is decorated in an eclectic, but highly styled way. The mis-matched furniture offers a comfy and homely feel whilst the random yet subtle art that is dotted around the place constantly keeps you engaged and amused. There’s a wide selection of teas and coffees and the cakes and patisseries are dainty and esqusite. There is sometimes a bit of a wait for the cakes as they are freshly made in small batches, but they are worth the wait. The menu also includes One of the main attractions of sketch is the toilets, which are just as weird and wonderful as the rest of the restaurant and offer some interesting mood ‘music’ which can sometimes be slightly disconcerting but certainly worth experiencing. It’s also possible to have dinner and evening drinks at Sketch, but as its situated just a short walk from the shops of Oxford Street, it provides the perfect rest stop during a hard day of shopping. This is a great place to take visitors to London who want a different dining experience! " hide

    Icebar London - Bar | Drinking Activity | Restaurant in London.
    Apr 27, 2013 A lot of money to pay to feel cold for 40 minutes "Going to the Icebar is a bit like like going to a museum or tourist attraction. Tickets must be bought in advance and you are given an allotted time to arrive. You're required to turn up in advance of your time slot, but there is a small bar where you can buy a drink during the wait. When it’s time to go in, you’re given your special cape and herded in through the doors into the room of ice. As part of the entry price you are given a free cocktail which is of course served in an ice glass, but there is an opportunity to purchase more whilst in there. Make sure to keep hold of your glass though, as there are limited number and it’s also a good idea to drink around the glass evenly as there’s a chance it’ll melt away! Timeslots for the Icebar are 40 minutes as it does get very cold, even with the fur capes, and would be hard to bear for much longer than that. It’s also very small with little to do or see once you’ve taken a few photos and got over the initial excitement of everything being made of ice. There are better bars in London to go, especially for the price they charge. It is an interesting experience, so possibly worth going once but don’t be surprised if it’s a bit anticlimactic. " hide
