Ruby Emma Hotel & Bar

Ruby Emma Amserdam Lounge1

a real bright spark
in Amsterdam

Perched on a meander in the Amstel, Ruby Emma's our greenest hotel yet. From the thermal aquifer that stores our hot water to the smart façade that reacts to the elements to heat and cool the building, green energy runs through Emma’s veins.

In the bar you'll find wind-powered gadgets and hand-wound machines, alongside a tasty menu of signature cocktails and local tipples. Drop in for drinks with friends or grab a spot at one of our live music nights. When it's time for bed, each room is a haven of Lean Luxury calm, carefully designed to help you power down after a busy day.

Emma's 15 minutes on the Metro from Amsterdam Centraal, but the best way to get around is on two wheels. Explore trendy De Pijp to see the city's top sights.

Sustainability meets energy

Inspired by centuries of sailors who've tacked their sails and harnessed the wind on the Amstel's tight turns, Ruby Emma's all about using the power of nature. From hand-wound contraptions to pedal-powered gadgets, the bar is abuzz with alternative energy. And when it comes to style, we’ve taken a steer from the 60s, when wind power took off again in Amsterdam. Mid-century modern and pre-loved pieces in bright, fresh tones showcase natural materials and the beauty of reusing and recycling.
