W’s reinterpretation of the traditional lobby, W Lounge, is the first stop for all arriving guests at the hotel. This cocktailbar, lounge and nightlife venue is on the sixth floor of the Exchange building. W Lounge will be at the heart of the hotel with unparalleled 360-degree views over the city. W Lounge features a distinctive set of stairs that flow into the bar and echo the iconic steps of Dam Square on the streets below.
W Music Curator
Inviting guests to meet our Music Curator, Manuel Zeeman, aka Smooth Talkin, is a Dutch-Portuguese hybrid residing in Amsterdam who, among a whole set of creative activities, has also been a DJ in the active for about 15 years. His double nationality, wide range of occupations (also a designer, visual artist and photographer) and relentless curiosity often come together in colorful, moving DJ sets, mixing and exploring genres that go from soul, hip-hop, afro beat to funk, disco, house, deep house and deep techno.
W Lounge is the perfect Amsterdam cocktail bar for everyone who is curious about everything that is 'new and next' in the world of mixology.
Bold gold lines printed on the windows of the W Lounge and over 5km of copper pipes pay tribute to the telephone wires and electricity lines that exchanged information on a daily basis when the building was home to the Royal Dutch Post Building.
