Bo Cinq – The secret lounge

If you want to take your girlfriend out in style, a pretty good spot to go to would be Bo Cinq: stylish interior, and, if you are a smoker – they definitely have the most beautiful smokers’ lounge in Amsterdam. If you are on a budget, they have a couple of good wines between € 20 and € 30 per bottle, but if you are in for something special, prices can go up to something around € 400.

Bo Cinq is a restaurant, a bar and, this is why I pay a visit once in while, a beautiful and stylish lounge. A good thing to do, especially if you haven’t reserved a table, get a bottle of wine, order some oysters at the bar and look for a good spot on one of the couches in the lounge.

Cuisine: French/Arabic, very delicious, seafood and tajine…

The bar/lounge entrance is not quite prominent, so look for a small sign Bo5, that’s all it says. It’s nice and stylish inside: I only feel sorry for the large tree in the smokers’ lounge, suffering quite a miserable existence. An interior designer’s choice for refreshing the air probably – at the expense of its life…

I forgot to mention: it’s a good place to take your business partners to, too…
