The A’DAM Tower

Although it may appear brand new, this tower has been around since 1971 and served as the headquarters for Royal Dutch Shell. However, after undergoing a multi-million euro renovation, the A’DAM Tower emerged in early 2016 as one of the most exciting creative and nightlife destinations in Amsterdam. With its rooftop observation deck, chic boutique hotel, nightclub, and a variety of exceptional bars and restaurants – including a revolving restaurant on the 19th floor – the A’DAM Tower is truly a tower of many talents.

In addition to its many attractions, A’DAM is also a creative hub. Located between the tower’s various offerings are the state-of-the-art offices of music companies ID&T, MassiveMusic, and Gibson, as well as a selection of young and innovative Amsterdam-based companies. This makes A’DAM an energetic centre where creativity can truly thrive.
