Canvas has existed for some time but reopened a year ago after the whole building had been changed into a hotel. Canvas is on the 7th floor of the quite impressive Volkshotel-building which has lots to see and do, a bar on the ground floor (Werkplaats), a nightclub in the cellar (Doka), the hotel itself, and Canvas, the restaurant/bar/nightclub on the top floor.
The view is still as amazing as it always was, I can never get enough of a good view of Amsterdam. Besides the view I enjoy the laid-back atmosphere on the terrace and the food which is very tasty and decently priced. Last time I was there the two of us shared three starters: Asian duck pancakes, something with crab, and Burrata (this has got to be my favourite cheese since I tasted it for the first time in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago). All of it was very tasty and the main courses also sounded like they are worth a try!
Don’t forget to check out the hot tubs and sauna which are on the terrace on the top floor, these are only accessible for guests of the hotel. I guess I will just have to book a room here sometime.
