Amsterdam: A Slice of Italy

In what was seeming like a dull month of August, Amsterdam is suddenly springing to life with new bars opening. This week, Terrazza Martini is coming to town. Somewhat of a touring circus, Terrazza Martini appears for a brief 4 days or so in Europe’s hip cities.  This week it’s Amsterdam’s turn to host this cocktail extravaganza with the party taking place in the elaborate and elegant Amstel Hotel.

The bar, sorry ‘Terrazza’, is open for for days from today (Thursday), each day themed with a different decade.  So, 50s, 60s, 70s, with Sunday climaxing in the 80s!  Last night I was at the opening party and yes, it was very entertaining, although it took rather a long time to get a drink!
