Since 2016, the Ambassade Hotel has been organizing the Literaire Salon @ Ambassade Hotel on a monthly basis, in collaboration with producer and media-artist Babeth M. VanLoo. A journalist or writer holds a one-hour dialogue with an author about a book, oeuvre or a (topical) theme, after which there is the opportunity for the audience to ask questions. Every edition of the Literary Salon is followed by a festive drink and a signing session by the author.
Previous guests include Dick Swaab, Judith Herzberg, Remco Campert, Annejet van der Zijl, Murat Isik, Arnon Grunberg, Tommy Wieringa, Connie Palmen, Abdelkader Benali, Jan Siebelink, Femke Halsema, David Sedaris and Tom Lanoye.
Please bear in mind that the Salons are generally held in Dutch.
Twice a year de Muzikale Salon is organized. This is alternately provided by violinist Svenja Staats and string orchestra Amsterdam Sinfonietta.
