MR PORTER, Amsterdam

Food MR PORTER is an unprecedented fine dining steak house in the crown of the historic Exchange building and the W Amsterdam. Duality defines MR PORTER character; simple and extravagant, masculine yet feminine, wicked though obedient. A traditional steakhouse transforms to become something sexy and continuously surprising. Founders and creators of this addition to the multitude of award-winning concepts of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP are internationally acclaimed hospitality entrepreneur Yossi Eliyahoo, the group’s CEO Stephanie Pearson and Executive Chef Hari Shetty.     "It is at the intersection of the familiar and the unknown, where real magic happens. MR PORTER captures that truth and translates it into a culinary experience unlike any other." – Yossi Eliyahoo, founder of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP         MR PORTER walks on the border between dinner and sinner with a unique concept that artfully blends qualities of the modern steakhouse with the buzz and experience of a chic lounge. A rib eye steak becomes exquisitely delicate and lightly roasted vegetables are elevated to a level of explosiveness. Unequalled taste combinations, unparalleled techniques and only the highest quality products enter and leave the transparent kitchen. This flirty, ambiguous and tasteful cuisine of MR PORTER translates into pure yet intricate dishes. Whilst baking a unique homemade focaccia as a starter and redefining gorgeous seafood- and vegetarian dishes, the spotlight of the MR PORTER menu is on the luscious selection of meats. Only the best cuts, the highest quality and the most playful preparations. MR PORTER crafted a menu that skillfully mixes evergreens such as a lady mignon, sirloin steak and –of course- the MR or MRS PORTER signature bone in filet, with ‘fresh meat’ like Chateaubriand with foie gras and the Tomahawk. Allow yourself to be seduced by the selection of sinful desserts that will always leave you wickedly wanting more. The bar and lounge of MR PORTER is open all day for morning refreshments and late-night drinks. MR PORTER distinguishes itself from other restaurants by emphasising the social experience and taking a new, vibe-driven approach to fine dining. The resident DJ creates an infectious, high-energy atmosphere, while the sleek surroundings with a signature 360-degree island bar are designed to encourage guests to interact and mingle. Where the nights are vibrant, Sundays are for relaxing. Every week ends with either an elaborate Sunday Roast brunch or a Sunday BBQ. Ultimately, MR PORTER aims to redefine the modern eating experience with its blend of incredible flavours, world-class service and the perfect ambience.   MR PORTER - Thirst quenching cocktails:   From its vantage point on the top floor of the W Amsterdam, with its unrivalled 360-degree view on Dam Square and the city lights, the bar of MR PORTER aims to be a gleaming beacon for modern global mixology. Innovative and engaging use of ingredients, methods and service has been at the centre of the menu design, as well as the contradicting faces of the city of Amsterdam. The cocktail menu defines what has long been thought of as impossible from behind the bar; illustrated by drinks as the 'Star of Nicosia' - a Martini with exotic olive spheres which explode in your mouth- or the MR PORTER 'Bloody Mary #11Pamplona Bullshot'. The culinary approach to cocktails blur the traditional lines between bar and kitchen, creating a bar concept like no other.   MR PORTER - The Penthouse:   Through its unique design, central location and fully transparent nature, MR PORTER is a spectacle all by itself. The mansion, located on the 6th floor of W Amsterdam just steps away from the prestigious Dam Square, offers a peek into the kitchen with 15 seats directly situated at the kitchen counter. The catwalk-like entrance, semi-private seating as well as an unequalled rooftop terrace, highlight the shape-shifting DNA of MR PORTER. It can be light or dark, clandestine or social, classy or naughty – all or none of the above. MR PORTER is a socio-culinary roof top experience, boasting an iconic vista over the city of Amsterdam and cutting-edge dining. Designed by internationally renowned and award-winning architects Irene Kronenberg and Alon Baranowitz of BARANOWITZ + KRONENBERG Architecture, this exceptional setting takes inspiration from the buildings ‘connect and exchange’ heritage moving from an introverted personalised restaurant space, to an extroverted gastronomic event that reaches out and connects with the urban sprawl around it. This duality of personal versus public, of intimate versus open is one of the undercurrents, which defines the MR PORTER experience. MR PORTER creates a sophisticated steakhouse experience redefining and challenging the traditional rules and injecting a fresh breath of vision to the Dutch dining scene. MR PORTER’s choice of cuisine, beverages, materials, textures and details pays tribute to this challenge. They are lighter in feel, leaner in detail, crisply innovative, classically smart, pushing the borders and socially enhancing; creating a contradicting spectacle of modesty.     MR PORTER | Spuistraat 175 | 1012 VN Amsterdam  mrportersteakhouse.com  info@mrportersteakhouse.com   +31 208113399 MR PORTER is an unprecedented fine dining steak house in the crown of the historic Exchange building and the W Amsterdam.

Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam

Travel The three founding hotels of The Set are located in the cultural heart of their vibrant cities. They have for decades a racted people who drive change and creativity and are places where established and emerging ideas come together to shape the future. Matching the spirit and pace of contemporary life, The Set hotels are explicitly designed to enable new discoveries and to capture the hearts and minds of guests in the process. These are places people love, want to return to and to tell others about. Simply put, they are the modern grand hotels of our time.     Over 100 years ago, architect Daniel Knuttel turned to a mix of neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau principles to visually celebrate the importance of the Conservatorium building. Today, Italian architect Piero Lissoni uses a contemporary design language to complement and continue this narrative. Inside and out, a strong design aesthetic is fundamental to the Conservatorium. It actually tells its story. The building’s original function as a savings bank is apparent in the playful details so embraced by the Art Nouveau movement. There are stone pigs carved into the staircase to symbolise piggy banks; spider webs on the tiles in the shopping arcade allude to spiders trapping ies to consume later; and the tiles also portray bees, which, metaphorically, save stocks of honey for the wintertime. These elements demonstrate an attention to design detail that remains today. Italian architect and design maestro Piero Lissoni was responsible for evolving this rich design history into a contemporary space. The way he merged the 19th century edi ce by encasing its interior courtyard in glass demonstrates a seamless, innate understanding of old and new, public and private. Lissoni’s style is rich, muted and stylishly pared-back. While his vision contrasts to the decorative nature of the original 19th century edice, it brings a new mood – and a new function – to this historic landmark building.     The Conservatorium regularly collaborates with the Conservatorium van Amsterdam music school and together they started the Expression of Art Award series. Each year, students from the jazz department are invited to play at the hotel. A jury is present to announce the winner, who is awarded with a monetary fund to encourage them in their musical career. The hotel’s cultural commitment goes beyond music. It has an ever-changing roster of contemporary artists displaying their work in the hotel lobby. These artists range from emerging talent to globally established names such as Banksy and Scholten & Baijings. Local artists also decorate the Artist in Residence Suites upstairs with works. These pieces are rotated frequently and are shown alongside publications giving details. They are accompanied by a series of lectures and workshops. The permanent art collection in the hotel has been curated by architect Piero Lissoni, and includes everything from reproductions of historic Dutch masterpieces to brand new commissions inspired by the Conservatorium’s cultural and musical history.   The Conservatorium has an illustrious, century-long past where society has always gathered together. This is especially apparent today in its elegant bar and restaurants. The restaurant Taiko rede nes contemporary Asian cuisine with authentic dishes made of local, seasonal products. Taiko takes its name from the Japanese for ‘drum’, and is located in the percussion room of the old music school. For something more casual, there is the Brasserie where platters full of healthy dishes greet customers as they arrive and afternoon tea is served every day. Lastly, the Tunes Bar serves cocktails, which are best enjoyed during the weekend when the in-house DJ brings the room alive.   The Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre marries innovative Western practices with ancient Eastern traditions. It boasts seven treatment rooms, including a double treatment suite, and o ers some of the nest signature spa treatments in Amsterdam. There is a private Hammam for purifying scrubs and massages. Akasha also features Amsterdam’s only Watsu pool for tailored hydro-treatments and guided meditation, as well as a large gym featuring Life Fitness equipment and private studios for yoga, pilates and more.     Located on Museumplein – Amsterdam’s historic cultural hub – the Conservatorium is surrounded by legendary artworks, ne examples of the applied arts and classical and jazz music in a set of world-famous institutions. Paintings by the Netherland’s greatest master can be found at the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum has a team of historic Dutch masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Frans Hals. Contemporary art is shown close by at the Stedelijk Museum and Moco Museum and opposite is the Concertgebouw, which has one of Europe’s best music programmes.

DIESEL Presents “Unforgettable Denim”

DIESEL Presents “Unforgettable Denim”

Fashion DIESEL announces the launch of its Fall 2020 campaign, which is rooted into one of denim’s key, longstanding elements: memory. Denim gets better with experience and becomes a sort of wearable record of the times you’ve had. The pen marks on the pocket? Doodles during a long flight to a faraway location. The scrape at the hem? From a night spent partying in Berlin. Denim collects these moments no matter what; not even 2020 can cancel a great pair of jeans.    In what has been a generation-defining year, DIESEL invites people—the world over—to celebrate the beautiful memories made in lieu of the plans that had to be put on hold, and wear these unexpected highlights with pride. For all the trips, events, parties, plans, ceremonies and more that could not take place in 2020, we are finding the opportunity to tell the surprise stories the connections that were made, the fun that was had, and the positive silver linings.    At the center of the Fall 2020 campaign is DIESEL’s new customizable denim collection. Through a special portal on www.diesel.com—and in select stores worldwide—clients will be able to personalize the leather tags on denim with something they could not participate this year. The intention is to commemorate what they did notdo, and the memory-making moments that ensued in the absence of those plans. A birthday party called off? Celebrate it by remembering it. A surf trip postponed? Create a keepsake for what might have been and use it as inspiration to plan for a later date – always with your favorite, unforgettable denim.   The platform is multi-subject: dozens of video clips, with real life anecdotes, directed by Pantera of the group Anonymous Content, will live online and on social media. Key visuals have been created by JP Bonino and will feature DIESEL watches and eyewear in addition to ready-to-wear.    The 2-month platform will follow the stories of various talents, influential figures including Evan Mock, the skateboarder and model. Normally a resident of New York City, he chose to enter isolation in Mallorca, Spain, reconnecting with nature. Julia Fox, an Italian-American actress, found unexpectedly restored love during lockdown. Donte Colley looked inward and became more active in fighting for what’s right. These individuals were photographed by RAYSCORRUPTEDMIND.   And it doesn't stop here: DIESEL is also partnering with different canceled events, like UNTOLD Festival, one of the most renowned music festivals in the world, to create a series of limited-edition denim trousers called the 2020 Fallen Edition. UNTOLD has won the award for Best Major Festival in Europe from its inception. In a “normal” year, it is visited by more than 350,000 fans from across the globe. Those fans will hold 2020’s edition in their imagination – and in a pair of customized Diesel jeans.

Digital cover story with actress KAT GRAHAM

Digital cover story with actress KAT GRAHAM

Fashion Kat Graham, whose breakout role was staring as Bonnie Bennett in the hit tv show ”The Vampire Diaries”, is a Swiss-born American actress, singer, dancer, producer and humanitarian. She started her career at the early age of five, released her own music working with music titans Babyface and Prince, been involved in fashion and is an advocate for human rights, focusing on the refugee crisis with the UNHCR. Since becoming a teen idol on the show, Graham has gone on to films like ”How It Ends” alongside Forest Whitaker, ”Cut Throat City” alongside Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes, and making history as the worlds first African-American April O'Neil in the ”Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series.      Exclusive digital cover story was captured by photographer Filip Koludrovic in Italy.   We had a delight speaking with Kat:   Kat, fans mostly know you through your work on ”The Vampire Diaries”. How has this role changed your career?    The role really gave me a platform internationally. It felt like Boot Camp honestly. We were doing 22 episodes a year for eight years. It was the hardest I have ever had to work on anything at that age. Right before booking the show I was touring with Will.i.am and The Black Eyed Peas. I definitely didn't think that my break was necessarily going to come from acting even though I had been acting longer than anything at that point. From that show, I was able to reach so many fans internationally, that I might not have had otherwise. I'm truly grateful for that experience. I learned so much about my craft, and also about my space in that show and the world as the only African-American in the cast.      You've been working with Dior as one of the faces of their campaign for their new series ”What's Ladylike” of their signature Lady Dior Bag. The series explores the diverse definitions and manifestations of a lady. How would you sum up this partnership?   Dior has always been a brand to me that represents strong women. Maria constantly pushes the boundaries on what is lady like? What is feminine? Who are we in our true essence? From pairing boots with skirts, to embracing African culture from hair to fabrics, Dior is truly a house of diversity and acceptance. I'm lucky and fiercely loyal to those women and that brand, because of who they are and what they represent for all women.      You've worked on PSA short film ”At Risk Youth” for Black Lives Matter 2 years ago, which landed you an Emmy nomination. The Black Lives matter movement is now more relevant and important than ever. What's your view on all that's been going on regarding this in 2020?   The murder of so many African-Americans by police forces in America is not only heartbreaking but a symptom of a deeply rooted system of injustice and discrimination in our society.  First, as an African-American actress in Hollywood, it is incredibly unfortunate and wildly oppressive that many black actors and actresses, such as myself, still to this day experience tokenism, marginalization, and are written without three-dimensional development that is so freely given to their white co-stars. It's infuriating and unacceptable. I deeply understand how important the black narrative is on film and television, as well as in music, which is why I have made the decisions that I have made in the past few years that support those narratives and have consciously chosen to not engage in projects and or with people that don't fit within that agenda.  More importantly, I want to focus on the issue at hand - end police brutality – and work through the many layers of racism that plague our society. Black lives are on the line. Right now, I want to use my voice to raise awareness for Breonna, George, Ahmaud and the many men and women who desperately need their stories told. We cannot take our focus off of this until meaningful change comes. I also want to focus my efforts on promoting solutions, such as investing in new approaches to community safety and holding officials accountable.      You're a strong advocate for human rights. You're a supporter of the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees. What does supporting the UNHCR mean to you?   My father is eight generations Liberian. During the Liberian Civil War, my grandfather was lined up on the beach to be shot by the Charles Taylor regime. My mother is Russo-Polish, whose family fled Europe and the Holocaust. I'm half African, and half Ashkenazi, with my family living in Israel.  People who've had to find refuge in other countries in order to live a better life are prevalent in my family's history. As a result, I've made it my life mission to help raise awareness about the plight of refugees across the world. Worldwide, almost 80 million people have been forced to flee their homes because of war, conflict, persecution and human rights violations. Of those, 26 million are refugees. This is why in 2013, I joined the UNHCR - The UN refugee agency - as a High-Profile Supporter.  In the last few years, I met with Syrian refugees at the Za'atari camp in Jordan. I travelled along the Guatemala-Mexico border where I met women, children and families forced to flee their own countries to escape extreme gang violence. I visited with Somali refugees at the Melkadida camp in southern Ethiopia and travelled to Nakivale in Uganda. In all the time I was there, I met incredibly resolute, resourceful, graceful and smart people. All they wanted was the chance to stand on their own feet and show the world they had the strength to survive and to thrive. I want to give these people a voice and a chance to fulfill their potential.      In August, your action heist thriller ”Cut Throat City”, starring also Terrence Howard, Eiza Gonzalez and Wesley Snipes, finally premiered. Tell us more about this film.   ”Cut Throat City” isa film directed by RZA. I played Demyra in the film, the wife of Blink who is a struggling artist that sets out to carry out a heist with his friends, after the government neglects the 9th ward community post Hurricane Katrina. I really loved working on this film and it is probably the coolest project that I've done up-to-date.      What's next for you in film and TV?   My next film is Netflix‘s ”Operation Christmas Drop” out in November. I play a congressional aid that gets sent to the Anderson Air Force Base to shut down their mission. Fun fact, this is actually a real mission that the base does every year and is the longest running humanitarian airlift in the world to this day. This is my fourth Netflix project in the three years that I've done since wrapping TVD. I really love being a part of that family. Netflix does an incredible job of fighting for inclusion and uplifting and elevating Black talent across the board.      What do you hope to see come from the work you are doing?   I hope that through my work, whether taking photos, being in film and TV and what I've been focusing on in 2020 (which has me producing and co-founding of the Modern Nirvana wellness group), I'm able to bring empowerment and healing to the world. I hope that I'm able to give a voice to the voiceless and do it in a really creative and enlightening way, that brings more compassion and understanding to the world.      TEAM CREDITS: PHOTO AND ART DIRECTION: FILIP KOLUDROVIC STYLING : MARCO DE LUCIA @ LUISAVIAROMA HAIR AND MAKE UP: ELISA RAMPI PRODUCTION: FEDERICA FRAGNOLI @LUISAVIAROMA ALL FASHION: @LUISAVIAROMA SPECIAL THANKS TO CRISTIANA CANOSA @ COMUNE DI ORTONA A MARE (CH) FOR THE LOCATIONS EDITOR: TIMOTEJ LETONJA Kat Graham, whose breakout role was staring as Bonnie Bennett in the hit tv show ”The Vampire Diaries”, is a Swiss-born American actress, singer, dancer, producer and humanitarian. She started her career at the early age of five, released her own music working with music titans Babyface and Prince, been involved in fashion and is an advocate for human rights, focusing on the refugee crisis with the UNHCR. Since becoming a teen idol on the show, Graham has gone on to films like ”How It Ends” alongside Forest Whitaker, ”Cut Throat City” alongside Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes, and making history as the worlds first African-American April O'Neil in the ”Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series.      Exclusive digital cover story was captured by photographer Filip Koludrovic in Italy.   We had a delight speaking with Kat:   Kat, fans mostly know you through your work on ”The Vampire Diaries”. How has this role changed your career?    The role really gave me a platform internationally. It felt like Boot Camp honestly. We were doing 22 episodes a year for eight years. It was the hardest I have ever had to work on anything at that age. Right before booking the show I was touring with Will.i.am and The Black Eyed Peas. I definitely didn't think that my break was necessarily going to come from acting even though I had been acting longer than anything at that point. From that show, I was able to reach so many fans internationally, that I might not have had otherwise. I'm truly grateful for that experience. I learned so much about my craft, and also about my space in that show and the world as the only African-American in the cast.      You've been working with Dior as one of the faces of their campaign for their new series ”What's Ladylike” of their signature Lady Dior Bag. The series explores the diverse definitions and manifestations of a lady. How would you sum up this partnership?   Dior has always been a brand to me that represents strong women. Maria constantly pushes the boundaries on what is lady like? What is feminine? Who are we in our true essence? From pairing boots with skirts, to embracing African culture from hair to fabrics, Dior is truly a house of diversity and acceptance. I'm lucky and fiercely loyal to those women and that brand, because of who they are and what they represent for all women.      You've worked on PSA short film ”At Risk Youth” for Black Lives Matter 2 years ago, which landed you an Emmy nomination. The Black Lives matter movement is now more relevant and important than ever. What's your view on all that's been going on regarding this in 2020?   The murder of so many African-Americans by police forces in America is not only heartbreaking but a symptom of a deeply rooted system of injustice and discrimination in our society.  First, as an African-American actress in Hollywood, it is incredibly unfortunate and wildly oppressive that many black actors and actresses, such as myself, still to this day experience tokenism, marginalization, and are written without three-dimensional development that is so freely given to their white co-stars. It's infuriating and unacceptable. I deeply understand how important the black narrative is on film and television, as well as in music, which is why I have made the decisions that I have made in the past few years that support those narratives and have consciously chosen to not engage in projects and or with people that don't fit within that agenda.  More importantly, I want to focus on the issue at hand - end police brutality – and work through the many layers of racism that plague our society. Black lives are on the line. Right now, I want to use my voice to raise awareness for Breonna, George, Ahmaud and the many men and women who desperately need their stories told. We cannot take our focus off of this until meaningful change comes. I also want to focus my efforts on promoting solutions, such as investing in new approaches to community safety and holding officials accountable.      You're a strong advocate for human rights.

Cecconi's Amsterdam

Food Cecconi's Amsterdam serves classic northern Italian food with a modern twist.   Located on the ground floor of the Bungehuis, the 130-seat restaurant includes a lounge with retractable glazed ceiling for an Italian courtyard feel, a large horse shoe shaped bar and a formal dining area and private dining room overlooking the canals of Amsterdam.   Originating in London’s Mayfair, Cecconi’s was first opened in 1978 by Enzo Cecconi, the youngest-ever general manager of the famous Cipriani in Venice. Reopened and then taken over by Soho House in 2005, the restaurant has been kept true to its original form. Cecconi’s Amsterdam continues to reference its history.   Executive Chef Lorenzo Zanaga worked alongside Soho House’s Executive Chef Andrea Cavalerie, to create a menu that offers a variety of cicchetti (Italian tapas), seasonal vegetables and salads, along with house-made pastas and pizzas. Main dishes include a selection of meat, fish and vegetarian options, all prepared in a wood- burning oven or charcoal grill.   The restaurant offers some incredible dishes, and delicious cocktails. It's in my opinion and opinion of many people the best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam. I have experienced it after a delighful time at their spa Cowshed right next door. You can book it as a package, which i would suggest for a relaxing afternoon. - Timotej Letonja     Soho House’s in-house team, Soho House Design, led the restaurant’s design. Blending the old with the new, the space fuses classic Venetian elements such as pink exterior plaster works, which speak to the restaurant's Italian heritage, with vintage furniture and Art deco characteristics of the Bungehuis. The three distinct areas were created to offer something for everyone – from a dinner in the main dining room or lounge, to a negroni and pizzetta at the main bar.   Cecconi’s Amsterdam is open from Monday through Sunday. Mondays through Wednesdays between 3pm and 6pm there is Cecconi’s Aperitivo Hour, with a small menu consisting of bites and drinks.   For private events, options range from partial buy-outs, to dinners or cocktail receptions within the restaurant's private dining room.    Additional Cecconi’s outposts are located in West Hollywood and Miami, along with London, Berlin, Istanbul and most recently, Barcelona.     For more information about Cecconi's Amsterdam, please visit their website: www.cecconisamsterdam.com Cecconi's Amsterdam serves classic northern Italian food with a modern twist.   Located on the ground floor of the Bungehuis, the 130-seat restaurant includes a lounge with retractable glazed ceiling for an Italian courtyard feel, a large horse shoe shaped bar and a formal dining area and private dining room overlooking the canals of Amsterdam.   Originating in London’s Mayfair, Cecconi’s was first opened in 1978 by Enzo Cecconi, the youngest-ever general manager of the famous Cipriani in Venice.
