De Pijp Highlights: Hutspot

Every wednesday, Anne will share the finest hotspots in Amsterdam’s most upcoming area: de Pijp. The best neighbourhood to choose from a wide selection of ethnic food as well as more high-end bars and restaurants. She will help you discover your new favorites out of all the hidden treasures that de Pijp has to offer.



Hutspot is a concept store opened by four young Dutch guys to give young entrepeneurs the chance to sell their work. The idea behind this store is that they collect a great amount of different brands who can hire space in their huge shop. The brands they offer rotate on a regular basis, which means that the store always has something new to offer.



Besides shopping, there is a café where you can read magazines, meet up with friends or have a good cup of coffee. It’s the perfect place for working nomads, because there is wifi and there are enough outlets.
There also is an art gallery (via Pup Gallery), what made me fall in love with the atmosphere of the shop even more.

What’s good? The inspiring mix of shopping, an art gallery and the café
What could be better? They don’t open early enough for me to have breakfast there
Extra’s: Literally everything is for sale, except for the store-dog Gumbo.
