MINIBAR – The first SELF SERVICE bar in the world
REVOLUTIONARY BAR CONCEPT OPENS IN AMSTERDAM.
THE WORLDâ€™S FIRST BAR, WITHOUT A BAR AND WITHOUT A BARTENDER “SERVE YOURSELF” AT AMSTERDAMâ€™S NEW MINIBAR
The famous Prinsengracht canal in Amsterdam is the location for a revolutionary bar concept where customers serve themselves from one of 45 private mini-bars, opened on March 20th.
The wall of mini-bars is accessed with a personal key that customers receive after checking in at the door.
The Minibar ‘s chic interior has been designed by Amsterdam architectural legends Concrete who are also responsible for The Supper Club, the award-winning Citizen M chain of budget hotels and a host of hot design offerings in the Netherlands and abroad. The idea for the new bar was conceived by a trio of Dutch friends who wanted to create a nightlife offering that was â€œmore like inviting your friends to hang out in a hip hotel room, than standing in line waiting for a drink at a regular bar.
