Contemporary Asian Cuisine

Named after ancient Japanese drums said to beat with a mythic rhythm, it is chef Schilo Van Coevorden’s Asian-inspired restaurant situated within the hotel. With a live Taiko player beating harmonious rhythms during weekends, Schilo’s explosive yet delicate Asian flavours are matched with a beautiful backdrop.

Taiko Bar

What first started as a playful flirt between kitchen and bar, inspired by a shared love and passion for Asia, has now grown into a new phenomenon within the last five years: Taiko Bar. With excellent service from some of Amsterdam’s best bartenders, supreme bites from Taiko Cuisine and a cocktail menu that makes you feel like you’re in a speakeasy in Roppongi, Taiko Bar translates the sophisticated nightlife of global cities such as Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai into the intimate, cosy setting of an Amsterdam neighbourhood pub.
