BAM! The first Yelp Amsterdam Elite Event was a big triumphant blast! The new Elites and their special guests excitedly entered Senses Restaurant. On their faces one could read the questions spinning through their brains. What am I going to do? Who will I meet? What is this Elite Event? Oh why did I come? The Senses team welcomed them with a warm smile and a lovely glass of bubbles and right at that first sip, these questions were answered…Red faces turned in the chill mode and they directly knew they were in good hands: Yelp's Bliss
The Amsterdam Elite Squad started with a sit down dinner with lots of super delicious wine. The service, the food and the entourage were fantastic! New friendships were born while chewing on some Pata Negra. Ahh the softness of the meat and the crispy fresh bite of rocket salad made us all realise how lucky we were. After the glasses were filled again, and the very passionate business owner of The Albus revealed his secrets to us, we got served AGAIN! This time a crispy topped catfish screamed: " eat me, eat me". So we did. While licking our finger tops, we were escorted to the bar of The Albus, the Design hotel of Amsterdam. Italian unique design like you have never seen before.
Due to the large group of Yelpers we were separated for the second half of the evening. Accompanied by the very lovely Joost some of us got the Grand Tour of The Albus while others were enjoying the Grand Dessert. The men of our gang were very much impressed by the High-end Technological gadgets found in all of the hotel rooms. The feminine bunch got more excited about the free Nespresso machines and the cosiness. We all gathered back at the bar and enjoyed the open bar for quite a while
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, same for this wonderful, The amazing team of Senses Restaurant and The Albus gave all the guests a genderized GOODIE BAG! Yes yes we got it all! With a large smile all yelpers left the building. The locations, the great attitude of the staff and the excited Yelpers made the title of this event, honestly: Senses of Bliss, Yelp's Bliss!
