Up-and-Coming neighborhoods in Europe you need to visit in 2020

Around Europe new hip and trendy neighborhoods are getting people’s attention. Here we’ve listed 4 areas in 4 cities to watch and visit during 2020.

Amsterdam: Amsterdam-Oost

From Turkish bakeries to Middle Eastern lunchrooms, Amsterdam-Oost is one of the capital’s most culturally diverse districts. Here’s what to experience when you’re here:

Hire a riverboat

Hire your own riverboat from Mokumboot and steer along Mauritskade canal. To the south, near Oosterpark, is the Tropenmuseum filled with artifacts from Dutch colonies like -Suriname and Indonesia. To the north is the city’s last remaining windmill, De Gooyer.

Eetbar

Javastraat, first settled by -immigrants from Suriname, -Indonesia and Morocco, has evolved into a round-the-clock foodie destination. The new gastropub Eetbar, a sister of nose-to-tail restaurant Wilde Zwijnen next door, does small, meaty plates and live jazz on Sundays.

Bar Bukowski helped spark the neighborhood renaissance with a creative, convivial layout and knock-out cocktails – the local gin and homemade fig syrup are specialties.

Stockholm: Hornstull

A huge draw at any time of year, the Hornstull district of Stockholm has undergone a radical transformation without taking away too much of -what locals loved about its friendly vibe in the first place. Make sure you check out:

Hornstulls Market

Get to Hornstulls Market on a Sunday, when dozens of vendors line up along the waterfront with old records, vintage homewares and silk kimonos. In summer, you can lie out on wooden bleachers or walk down to the waterfront.

Tjoget

Tjoget loves its seafood, but eschews herring and mackerel for octopus and mussels, cooked Mediterranean-style with chili, capers and lots of wine. They also start with some great tapas, like padron peppers and Iberico salchichon served alongside fresh vegetables. If you don’t book, you’ll often find a space, eventually – try the bar in the wine “bodega”.

Judit & Bertil

Live DJs spin at Judit & Bertil, an edgy little side-street wine bar slathered in graffiti. Come after the market on a Sunday 
for a glass of Amarone or 
a cocktail teeming with egg white.

Paris: South Pigalle

The one-time red light district has changed beyond all recognition in recent years. Do not miss:

Arriviste boutiques

The South Pigalle district has come of age, and while it hasn’t been gentrified beyond recognition it’s becoming known for more than just its previous underbelly and is now home to arriviste boutiques like men’s outfitter Vestiaire General and the gallery Amelie.

Le Carmen

Le Carmen is inspired by Georges Bizet, former tenant of this pillared and paneled home decked out in velvet upholsteries and crystal chandeliers that reflect off the mirrored bar. Staff make their own gin, bottled apothecary-style, and craft cocktails sur mesure, according to your wishes.

Le Pantruche

With its sinuous brass-rail bar, Le Pantruche feels like a Belle Epoque bistro. But it tastes thoroughly modern, thanks to the innovative treatment of oysters (tartare, mince), expertly braised winter vegetables and ravioli stuffed with game. Start next door at the new wine bar 228 Litres.

London: Dalston

Find out what all the fuss is about in East London’s artiest enclave.

Jazz bonanza

Go for a jazz bonanza, starting with happy hour at the Servant’s Jazz Quarters, followed by a show at London’s legendary club Vortex – both located around lively Gillett Square, an unofficial hub for neighborhood skateboarders.

Book early for a culinary treat at Angelina. Offering an unlikely marriage of Italian and Japanese flavors such as unagi risotto and onglet with hibachi, it works, as does the casually elegant interior, with its cupboard-sized backroom bar.

Three Sheets

The renowned mixologists at Three Sheets chose a strip chockablock with cocktail bars, but here they do them best, with their ever-changing menu of drinks infused with neroli, vinegar, beetroot and miso.
