DISTRICT: THE JORDAAN

This artsy area is brimming with avant-garde shops, street-side cafés, groovy galleries and low-key bars, all nestled on narrow, coble-stoned streets named after local flowers.


Sprmkt

This massive industrial space showcases a dizzying array of artifacts you’d expect to find on a film set. Formerly a supermarket, this super cool store is stocked with retro furniture, ‘60’s style spider lamps, antique mannequins, oval-shaped standing mirrors, couches and shag rugs. Since setting up shop in 2003, owner Nelleke Strykers has also branched out into clothing (Acne jeans are a best-seller), shoes (Chie Mihara is a fave), leather bags, art books, CD’s, vintage fabrics (for pillows, curtains and clothes), sunglasses and old stock designer jewelry. Due to popular demand, “Super Plus” – a new store within the store was set up, which carries pricier labels like the coveted Martin Margiela. The ongoing art and photography exhibitions are also a must.
