Ryan ‘My Lyan’ Chetiyawardana, several-times winner of the World’s Best Bar, is opening his first international venture, in Amsterdam.
The Dandelyan and Cub operator is taking his Super Lyan concept to Kimpton De Witt hotel in Amsterdam.
The all-day neighbourhood bar will have a philosophy of ‘re-imagining the familiar’, with a vision of sustainability and innovation.
Chetiyawardana said: “Although I love London, I love being able to travel and experience new cultures. I love to eat and drink my way around the world. And sometimes you come across a place that makes you feel like you want to live there, or to embrace the culture and the setting. Amsterdam with its incredible history, warmth, fun and charm is one of those places for me. As a culture, the Dutch have been inclusive and progressive for centuries, and that optimism was something I found incredibly inspiring.”
