The Pool, Amsterdam


The Student Hotel is a fast growing international organization combining the best of the hospitality and student housing branches and they recently opened their fourth hotel at the Wibautstraat in Amsterdam. For this new location, The Student Hotel wanted to introduce a new place to eat and drink for their students and guests, a place where a place where talents and flavors mix and mingle.

EME Hospitality Projects has been asked to develop this new F&B concept and advise on the F&B strategy. In February 2016 the new dynamic & kick ass European Food & Beverage brand called The Pool opened. The Pool is a kick ass, fun, funky place to ‪eat, ‪to drink, ‪‎to dance and ‪‎to party. An in house hotel bar/restaurant BUT totally different. The Pool has an open kitchen with two large pizza ovens, a coffee bar for a good quality coffee and a bar where cocktails and bites are served. The menu offers Mediterranean style food items characterized by authentic, pure and fresh ingredients, to eat in or to take out. In this case, Mediterranean stands for the connection of the Old Silk Road: from the French, Italian, Spanish cuisine to the Levant, the Balkans and North Africa. So come and dive into a ‘pool’ of sights, smells, flavors and sounds.

Currently The Student Hotel is working on new locations in Groningen (opening in 2016) and Eindhoven (opening 2017).The interior of The Pool is designed by Ninetynine.
