15th of December

B. digital studios

Unfortunately, this year won’t have the usual crazy Christmas drinks or dinners with your team and business connections. But if we must do it differently, we’ll do differently right. So, let’s get digital.

End the year on a positive note by sending an original, digital Christmas or New Year’s greeting card to your business relations.

Our green screen room makes it possible to create an animated card with the entire team (whilst adhering to social distancing rules) with any background you can imagine.

And because it’s Christmas, here’s a EUR 50,00 discount. Just use the code BDIGITAL50 when booking. Valid until January 4th.

Email events.ams@b-amsterdam.com for more information.

And did you know we have three, fully-equipped livestream studios with state-of-the-art technology? These studios are perfect for:

// Green screen productions
// Livestreams
// E-learnings
// Talk shows
// Webinars
// Product launches

On top of our standard 20% member discount, we’re offering an extra EUR 100,00 off your next digital studio session.

Just use the code BDIGITAL100 when booking. Valid until April 1st.

Moon Calendar

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift to go under the tree?

Lexmond vs Lexmond’s Moon Calendar is a carefully crafted calendar full of insightful tips about savoring life’s moments, memorable quotes, delicious recipes and knowledge about the herbs of nature. A small something to help you or someone you love get more out of each day.

And specially for our B. members, we've organized a 40% discount. Use the code BMEMBERMOONCAL40 when ordering your Moon Calendar here.

The well-known sisters Lieke and Jetteke van Lexmond grew up in nature with a spiritual, intuitive, shaman-like mother and their own vegetable and herb garden. But in their later urban lives, there was no time for the lunar cycle until they accidentally ended up in a farming village in rural France. There, all the residents lived with the rhythm of the Moon, influencing the ebb and flow of life. The sisters became captivated by the moon again, and they’d like to show you why.

17th of December

STACH

Our advent calendar wouldn’t be complete without our catering partner STACH. Together, we decided that B. members deserve an extra foodie treat over the festive period.

So, from now until January 31st, you can enjoy one of their incredibly tasty cookies, for free, with your hot drink of choice.

All you have to do is show up at the coffee bar in B.1, show them this advent box and voila. Mm-hmm.

18th of December

Boom Chicago

Do you miss VrijMiBo? We certainly do. That’s why we’ve partnered with Boom Chicago to organize a hysterical comedy show specially for you.

The VrijMiShow is Boom Chicago’s new fabulously funny show, a throwback to the 90s when any TV problem could be solved in half an hour — including the commercials.

You know the format: a group of (beautiful) friends hung out in the same locations and got into realistically unrealistic situations. Cameras captured the action, and the ‘live studio audience’ knew when to laugh, applause and go “ooooh”.

Boom Chicago celebrates the glory days of the 1990s from which these iconic sitcoms came. Come enjoy the music, fashion and news from a simpler era of Friends, Het zonnetje in Huis and the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And as a finale each night, together with the audience, the actors will create a brand new Sitcom and shoot a short pilot episode.

When: Friday, January 22th 2021 // 18:00 - 19:15

Book your VIBB Seats (Very important B. Butts) for EUR 20,00 per person (excl. EUR 5,00 surcharge to bring you own food & drinks)

Due to Corona restrictions, the bar is temporarily closed. The good news: you’re allowed to bring your own drinks and snacks. Boom Chicago will provide water, glasses, ice and coolers, and will also clean up afterwards. This is as close as you will get to a bar over the next few weeks!

The Roos Mini Market next door has a good selection of (cold) beer, wine and soft drinks. They’re open until 20:00, and you’re allowed to enter Boom Chicago until 20:00 (yes you can drink after the show is finished). They are charging a 'good news surcharge' of €5 per person to help offset the losses of lower capacities during these restrictions. Thank you in advance for your support of the arts.

19th of December

New Year's Padel

We know that for many of you, starting a sport will be your New Year’s resolution. We also know that resolutions can be tough. Luckily, we have six Padel courts to help.

We’re opening our courts on January 25th (09:00 – 17:00) for members for free, and you can reserve a one-hour court for two or four people. And if you’ve never paddled before, no problem. We also have a court with an instructor available.

Since Padel is so popular amongst B. members, court bookings will work on a first come first serve basis, and you can book until January 18th. So if you want to start that resolution early, don’t wait around.

Send your booking preference to nina@b-amsterdam.com

Right To Play

PLAY at work can mean increased job satisfaction, improved teamwork and better business results. But how do you play in these tricky times when nearly every get together is online?

You’re warmly invited to a unique online PLAY Works session with the renowned philosopher Lammert Kamphuis from the School of Life. The workshop is brought to you by our B. member Right To Play.

About PLAY Works

During this forty-five minute online session, you’ll be challenged to think about yourself as a playful human being. You’ll learn valuable insights on how play contributes to your enjoyment and results at work, and how important play is in these times of online operations.

Lammert will then share his method of playful interactive talk, and you’ll leave with concrete knowledge on how to integrate play into everyday life and how you can make your (online) work more fun.

About the speaker

Lammert Kamphuis is philosopher and much-booked speaker at conferences and festivals. Lammert is affiliated with the School of Life Amsterdam as Head of Faculty and has researched how philosophy helps us with everyday issues.

His book ‘Filosofie voor een weergaloos leven’ was published in June 2018. A new version of the book was released last month focusing on how philosophy can help us in times of crisis.

About Right To Play

Right To Play is an international organization that works with some of the world’s most vulnerable children — children whose futures have been disrupted by war, exploitation and poverty. Right To Play’s mission is to protect, educate and empower these children to rise above these challenges and find their way back to hope using the power of play. The organization reaches over 2.35 million children each year in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
