GRIF 2020 Host Venue: NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky

Published 01 October 2019

NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky is very excited to be hosting GRIF 2020 in the very heart of Amsterdam.


The 5-star hotel is overlooking Dam Square and facing the Royal Palace. 451 rooms, over 2000m2 of meeting space and a Michelin starred restaurant with an iconic interior design, are the key ingredients that make NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky the crown jewel of the hotel industry. Old meets new in the mythical Winter Garden or in the captivating Grand Café Krasnapolsky. The latter honours its founder Mr. Adolph Wilhelm Krasnapolsky who first opened a coffee house on this exceptional location in 1856. The hotel wears its history proudly with images from the old days.


During the GRIF event, the fabulous 19th-century Winter Garden will take center stage. The unique glass covered courtyard is decorated with mirrors and murals. The special glass and steel construction make it a truly impressive event venue. As from its opening, the Winter Garden has been the decor of many exclusive events; from Royal wedding receptions, galas and fashion shows to product presentations and dinners.


With its chic and vibrant lobby, the hotel continues to make guests feel inspired through its remarkable gastronomy, steered by signature chef Jacob Jan Boerma. With three Michelin stars in the pocket, Boerma heads-up restaurant The White Room, located in one of the hotel’s most monumental areas. He aims to reach new heights in Amsterdam’s haute cuisine, surrounded by original frescoes from the 19th century that coexist with superb, modern décor.


The restaurant is led by young talent Chef de Cuisine Randy Karman. In December 2017, only one and a half year after opening, The White Room was awarded with its first Michelin star. Boerma also supervises the menu for Grand Café Krasnapolsky. This legendary café that gave origin to the hotel is today reborn as an elegant bistro and tea parlour.


Bar The Tailor, with its eclectic interior design whose key lies in the world of tailoring, pays tribute to the former craft of the hotel’s founder with bespoke cocktails. Bar Manager James Chaib even became the Best Bartender of the Netherlands in 2019 according to World Class.
