We here at Hotel V like to stay up to date on the new places to eat and drink that open up in Amsterdam. Because how are we supposed to recommend the hot new spots if we don’t know them ourselves, right?
So purely in the name of research, some V crew members took their show on the road and checked out Little Buddha, Amsterdam’s hot new sushi and cocktail lounge by the Leidseplein. (See what we do for our guests!!!)
Little Buddha is the little sister of the world-renowned Buddha Bar, so we were excited to see what it was like.
We were hard-pressed to find something that we didn’t like about it: the cocktail list was creative and exotic, the sushi plate that we tried delicious, the atmosphere chic and jovial, and the staff super-friendly. Win-win-win all around! It’s the perfect place to bring a date (lots of dark little corners for canoodling), or a group of friends before a big night out. However, as they are so popular right now, and have so many tables to serve, expect a wait!
Little Buddha is just over a month old now, and from what they told me they are fully booked every night, so if you are going then definitely call ahead for reservations. And try the Spicy White cocktail made with pepper infused gin- it burns oh so good!
