For years, this historic building was empty and abandoned. The first idea to remodel the beautiful canal house rose in 2012, and after a year of renovating, the first new concept opened early 2013 at Singel 460. It's located close to the Spiegelkwartier and other dance clubs around the Leidseplein.
Restaurant Ricardo's in Odeon
Ricardo's in Odeon is a farm-to-table restaurant concept that is housed in the basement of Odeon in Amsterdam. Chef Ricardo van Ede, who once owned a Michelin star, loves to create pure dishes. At the restaurant Ricardo's in Odeon, only the best of local produce is used to create the daily, changing menu. The menu is seasonal, and the ingredients used come from farms in The Netherlands as close to Amsterdam as possible.

At Ricardo's, you can choose for a menu of three courses and up, depending on your budget. Since there is no set menu, you can let the waiter know about your preferences. Vegetarians are just as welcome at Ricardo's in Odeon as everyone else.
The dishes look beautiful when served to the table, and you will notice that even though the ingredients are pure and rough, the plates are looking beautiful. And the taste? That's even better!

The last phase of the renovation of Singel 460 in Amsterdam was the club. The dark layers of paint were removed to reveal the old wooden details. The dark venue is turned into a light and beautiful club again without losing the historical character.
Club Odeon is now rested with one of the best sound systems and isolation in Amsterdam. It's ready to welcome locals and tourists to come clubbing again.
The concert room at Odeon is legendary. It's like a ballroom in a historic canal house, with the beautiful high ceilings and decoration.

There are several new club nights at Odeon, such as Nachtdieren, which is translated as "night animals." It's a mini festival with cocktails, live music and DJs under one roof. Club Odeon will also be home to bands performing or classical music concerts.
With the re-opening of both the restaurant Ricardo's in Odeon and Club Odeon, this beautiful building at the Singel 460 in the heart of the city center is a one-stop hot spot for a perfect night out. Enjoy fine dining before an evening of clubbing or other special event that is hosted in this upscale venue.
