Oud-West (Old West): The action is revving up in this friendly, working class district next to the Jordaan. De Hallen (dehallen-amsterdam.nl) is hipster heaven: prepared food stalls, a cinema, hotel, bike recycling shop and fashion incubators now pack the century-old tram depot after its slick revamp. Jordaan: The Jordaan is Amsterdam's 'it' neighbourhood for convivial cafes and markets. Noord: The avant-garde thrives across the IJ river. Ferry over to the gleaming EYE Film Institute. Fifteen minutes upriver, NDSM-werf is a derelict shipyard turned edgy arts community. Haarlemmerbuurt: The main arteries are Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk, which together formed the old road to Haarlem. Today Mediterranean delis, record stores, denim boutiques and cookbook shops pepper the thoroughfare. Westerpark: Artsy young professionals beat a path to the enclaves in Amsterdam's northwest corner for artist studios, wildly popular cafes, leafy patios and pop-up restaurants. Eastern Docklands: The former warehouse district at the city's east is a hotbed of modern architecture. Pride of place goes to the sparkling glass Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam's main performance hall, and the black-box-shaped Bimhuis, often cited as the world's best jazz venue.
