Summer in your own city: #felyxsupportyourlocal in Amsterdam
Sun rays, tropical temperatures and a clear blue sky – the summer is officially upon us. It probably takes some getting used to without all the vacation plans and you probably never thought that you would ever use the word ‘coronacation’ in your vocabulary. But don’t worry, because felyx will help you with the best hotspots for a summer in your own city. With the felyx you can travel safely, super fast, in the sun and discover the most amazing and creative initiatives of locals in Amsterdam. Nice for you, good for them #felyxsupportyourlocal!
1. Sun’s out, fun’s out!
It was already clear that we were fan of the TonTon Club – so we can’t be more than happy with their creative initiative. Are you also looking forward to their refreshing milkshakes, Asian snacks and a game of air hockey while you wait for your order? The TonTon Club in the Westerpark has opened their terrace with a special TonTon takeaway menu and has brought their best games outside. Did you know that their air hockey tables are just long enough to play a game or have a picnic with a safe 1.5 metres distance? Park your felyx in the spacious parking lot and enjoy TonTon in the sun.
2. From the Amstel to the dining table
With these tropical temperatures we prefer to spend our day near the water, but for now we have exchanged the Amstel for our dining table at home. Fortunately, you are only one felyx ride away from a personalized snack and/or picnic package. Drive along the water in the sun and pay a visit to tHuis aan de Amstel, where you can pick up the tastiest ingredients from local entrepreneurs. Don’t you feel like cooking? No problem. Choose their daily dish from the weekly changing menu, store it in the felyx and go!
3. Guaranteed romance
At Abbey in Bos & Lommer they know how to make delicious food, so you shouldn’t miss this spot during your tour on the felyx in Amsterdam. At this hotspot you will find simple meals that are well prepared and often have an interesting twist. At the moment, the owners provide all kinds of creative solutions – you can pick up fish & chips or a fully catered BBQ box, but they also offer a dating service. What? Yes, a dating service! Abbey helps you to organise a romantic evening for you and your lover. Candlelight, rose petals, two dishes of your choice, matching wine, challenging questions and even a Spotify playlist with Abbey’s Love Songs. With a little help from Abbey, you know for sure that you will make an impression and will not continue to ride the felyx alone.
4. Beerboost with Krux
All that life makes you thirsty, says Krux Brewery. The brewers on the Cruquiuseiland want to make sure that you don’t run out of your beer-stock. So, it’s time to give a boost to your fridge. Drive with your felyx towards the East of Amsterdam, park your felyx and walk through their creative Walk-Through-Blikkenbar to pick up a box or six-pack of their delicious beers. As the brewers say so beautifully: it’s beer and love at a distance. Time to clear out that fridge and make room for a monthly supply of Krux beer.
5. Greenhouse fresh
Noordermarkt, move over! Because on Sundays you can visit the organic market at De Kas Amsterdam to load up your felyx with fresh products from their own garden. While you are waiting in the sun, the strawberries and beetroots are being harvested and wrapped up for you. That sounds like a good Sunday, right? But there is more.. You can also bring the restaurant-feeling into your home by ordering their delicious takeaway menu or choose one of their wine boxes that have been carefully selected by the sommeliers of De Kas. Every week this hotspot surprises you with a new and above all fresh menu. It doesn’t get any better this summer!
