The Hoxton Amsterdam

Shoreditch Vibe, Amsterdam Style

When the popular Shoreditch mainstay Hoxton Hotel opened a new branch in Holborn in 2014 and called it The Hoxton Holborn, we were mildly bemused and wondered whether out-of-town visitors would be confused by this geographic mesh-up.  Now the same team has taken the concept one step further by launching The Hoxton Amsterdam and we are impressed by how well this cross-border transplant works.  Made of 5 canal houses at the corner of two grand canals in central Amsterdam, The Hoxton Amsterdam somehow manages to combine the industrial cool of Shoreditch with the laid-back vibe of Amsterdam to create a space perfect for hipsters.  We particularly like The Apartment, a set of multi-functional event spaces designed to evoke the atmosphere of different rooms in a house (kitchen, library etc).  We can't think of a cooler venue to host our board meetings.  Smoking, especially of herbal products, is definitely not allowed.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
