Amsterdam – It’s currently about five degrees in Amsterdam. The wind is strong and rain is forecast. But you wouldn’t know it when stepping into La Cervecería, a new Studio Modijefsky-designed addition to Amsterdam’s culinary melting pot. The bar teams a traditionally Southern European palette with modern patterns to create a space for ‘locals to feel on holiday and for Southern internationals to feel at home’, says a Studio Modijefsky spokesperson.
The interior – which references typical cervecerías, casual spaces that serve cañas and pinchos – relies on variegated seating arrangements to create a sense of dynamism. Guests can take a seat at the bar, gather around a high table or settle into a more intimate dining spot. Equally dynamic is the material palette: warm-toned oak wood and bronze railings are juxtaposed with mirrored walls and graphic floor tiles.
