The most unusual place to eat in Amsterdam must be the Supper Club
(<www.supperclub.nl>, book well in advance (Jonge Roelensteeg 21 (344
Here are some descriptions:
"The dining area walls are white and you sit on beds - a suggestive
sexual intent if ever there was." [...] (World Best Bars,
"Over at the Supper Club, you get a different but equally bizarre
experience. This is Amsterdam's new hotspot: a place that combines
fine food, funky grooves and cutting-edge design. Here, you eat a six-
or seven-course meal reclining on a bed.
Dancers as well as waiters manoeuvre between the tables and when you
have finished your supper and had a little rest on your mattress, you
can get up and dance. Guests arrive at 8pm, slowly make their way
through their meal and don't have to leave until 2am." (Guardian:
"Eating out in Amsterdam: Tangerine dream",
"But probably one of the most unique dining experiences in the world
takes place at the Supper Club. This restaurant has become one of the
toughest tickets in all of Europe because of its ingenious approach to
suppertime; a five-course gourmet meal served to you in bed. This
place is quirky even by Amsterdam standards. On one infamous occasion,
the chef served lamb as live sheep meandered through the restaurant.
Another night, lobster was delivered to patrons in dog bowls. After a
little apprehension, we decided we just had to go!
The Supper Club is located in a narrow alley with no windows or
visible evidence that it exists. We finally found the right door and
entered a bar scene straight out of Austin Powers - stark white curvy
couches and walls that were draped with shower curtains. Pulsating
multi-colored [sic] lights illuminating black and white photos of some
very odd-looking people. Uh, Joy, I think the bartender rimmed our
champagne glasses with ecstasy or something. After some choice people
watching we were summoned to dinner.
The hostess, Amsterdam's answer to Ru Paul, threw open the doors to
the dining room
I mean bedroom ------ God, am I confused! Along both
sides of the restaurant, there were two tiers of white beds, each tier
about one hundred feet long. Large silver trays were placed on
mattresses that served as tables. A drive-in sized video screen above
the huge open kitchen flashed bizarre images as the DJ played Burt
Bachrach tunes. Dinner was served by a seven foot tall Shaquille
O'Neal look-a-like in an orange fur coat and an emaciated little waif
in a majorette costume apparently working her way through Methadone
We gazed upon this circus-like production from a cozy little corner
Posturpedic. Between courses, Joy took advantage of a full body
massage by the official Supper Club masseuse. I had not seen my wife
face down with a man on her back in the middle of dinner since the
Jagermeister incident of '94. The food, like the atmosphere, was out
of this world. The entire experience lasted six hours and it was the
highlight of our trip. As we were leaving, Ru Paul said in 'her'
finest baritone voice, "You two added a nice energy to our club
I think. Shagadelic baby!" (Tom Thrun, "AMSTERDAM
DINNER IN BED" <http://www.classictravelusa.com/Tom-AMSTERDAM.htm>).
Another special restaurant in Amsterdam is The Garlic Queen
(Reguliersdwarsstraat 27 1017 BJ Amsterdam tel.: 020/4226426), all of
their servings - including the ice cream - is made of garlic.
By the way, the completely dark restaurant, at least the original one,
is in Berlin. The restaurant, where you eat from the waitress body is
Samsi Sushi Restaurant in Manchester (read an Ananova story about it:
