SIR announces the opening of its third hotel, Sir Adam, located in the first eight floors of the city’s landmark A’DAM Toren. The tower is home to Gibson, MassiveMusic, Sony, and several of the most notable organizations in the music industry.
ÒWe have some of Europe’s greatest music talents as our neighbours, so it made sense to create a space to not only complement but also nurture that energyÓ says SIR founder and owner Liran Wizman. SIR is all about delivering the quality and service that every modern traveller expects, while connecting them to the zeitgeist of the neighbourhood.
ÒOverlooking the City IJ-river and the historic city centre of Amsterdam, this urban boutique hotel boasts 108 rooms, diverse food and beverage outlets, and multi-dimensional meeting and event spaces. The colourful industrial-chic interiors, designed by award-winning New York-based innovation and design studio ICRAVE, create a free-spirited atmosphere that plays host to lifestyle travellers and locals in a curated environment full of music and artÑ ensuring Sir Adam is set to become the new cultural centre in town.
Replacing the traditional hotel lobby is The Hub, a co-working space-meets-concept store and Music Library where guests can listen to a range of vinyl. The Hub overlooks THE BUTCHER Social Club, located on the ground floor, a bright and spacious gourmet burger joint set in a casual living room environment. The vibrant space includes a large island bar and riverside terrace, which will host regular live performances and nightly DJ sets.
A spiral staircase ascends to a panoramic indoor-outdoor drinking den, The Beergarden. Also located on this floor are The Studios, flexible event spaces which can be combined with the Beergarden to host events for over 200 guests.
The 107 guest rooms and the suite are outfitted with the necessities to entertain, from Bluetooth-enabled Crosley record players and a collection of vinyl’s, to a Gibson guitar. Embracing the original structure of the tower, raw concrete pillars and exposed ceilings frame the interiors. The floor-to-ceiling windows hold floating desks and window benches providing dramatic, panoramic views of the city’s skyline.
ÒIt was a pleasure to collaborate with a bevy of local emerging artists on the commissioned pieces in the hotel,Ó said Jesse MacDougall, Director of Strategy and Brand Development at ICRAVE. ÒMost notably, the dynamic duo of Telmo & Miel did a fantastic job on the double-height mural featuring an androgynous cyborg, and Floor Bijkersma created two lenticular compositions on the bar and reception desk that deal with the fleeting and tenuous conditions of fame.Ó
