Our Story

About us

Upon arrival you’ll immediately face a bar with over 200 kinds of exclusive drinks. Anything from a Japanese single malt to Robert Mondavi fumé blanc! Our cocktail menu is put together by the very best Dutch bartenders and doesn’t only include the classics, but a couple of signature cocktails like ‘The Naughty Schoolgirl’ and ‘The Golddigger’ that will definitely make you come back!

Dining is done in boudoir-like seats on our entresol, where you’ll have a view on our open kitchen. We serve French-Asian cuisine with a “shared dining” concept. Meaning you can order one or multiple dishes and share them together. From ceviche and black truffle pasta to black cod marinated in miso. And don’t forget to try our signature “Tuna Tataki Lollipops”.

YOLO is very suitable for a cozy dinner, a fun cocktail night, business drinks or a walking dinner up to 60 people. The entresol can also used for private dining or a cocktail area.

Fully styled by Nikkie Plessen and OGER, our crew is looking forward to welcoming you!
