London has Fleet Street, Amsterdam has its Wibautstraat. In the years after WWII all national daily newspapers had their main offices on this rather ugly street. Things have changed by now: all dailies relocated leaving the premises vacant for new and hip restaurants, clubs and bars. Baut opened the other week in the former Parool building. We like it: it’s delicious, young, and temporary: just for the coming 800 days. Other clubs, in the same area are temporary as well: in the building next door Club Trouw opened two years ago, in the same cool format. On the other side of the road is Canvas, located in the old Volkskrant building. Great to see that Fleet Street is thriving again!
