The Suicide Club creative director Cindy Kiota updates you on what not to miss this month and also shares her personal favourites in the restaurant and at the bar.
“Summer is still here! And we’re as happy as a clam, because our club and rooftop is the ultimate summer hangout of the city. Awesome to see the eighth floor fills up rather quick these days – we’re open from 4pm – and everyone mainly stays outside long after sunset. You’re more than welcome to bring your towel, book and sunscreen for an intensive sunbathing session, surrounded by the best view, vibe, crowd, cuisine, booze and beats. Heat wave or not, The Suicide Club is cool as always. And with temperatures like this, we fully understand cooking is too much for you. We’re happy to serve you our renowned dishes; go for the tasty mains or smaller dishes to share, they’re all Asian style with a sexy Suicide twist.”

“The city might be quiet and snoozing in the sun, The Suicide Club is vibrant as ever. Avoiding the crowded beaches and staying in the city has never been a better idea, because we have a marvellous month for you.”
“The first all-nighter of one of the most talented local citizens in dance music, of course takes place with us. Luuk van Dijk might be young in years (22), he has an ‘old soul’, so await a set filled with sounds that take you back to the old days. Get a hint of what to expect? We went record shopping with him, looking for some great vinyl that will surprise you.”
“Next stop of the Boogie Express: the roof! This very new party only does unique locations, so after an amazing Boogie Boat, this Boogie Roof will be just as unforgettable. Boogie is young, fresh and full of energy. Already for weeks we’re looking forward to this extraordinary evening of house and hardihood.”
“This night makes me so proud to work at The Suicide Club. The Native magazine from London is a platform which not only pushes the Afro beat sound, but also the African style and art, and this Cloud 8 we go Native all the way. They bring artists from Nigeria, you can join the dance workshop and the dj’s from Blends complement the evening to the fullest.”
“We’re ending this summer month with an ode to our signature Suicide evening: Eyeballin. A great and accessible mix of music styles, where literally everyone feels at home. Make sure you look ‘eyeballin’ for three days in a row, wear your sunglasses at night and you’ll make it to the eighth floor for a remarkable Eyeballin Weekender.”
“When I think about summer dishes, I think about skewers on a barbeque. That charcoal smell and flavour is just irresistible and stands for practically everything that makes you happy, foremost eating together with your loved ones, because who barbecues alone? Our chef catches that ultimate summer feeling in an amazing dish. For me the Tako to Ama – ‘octopus and shell diver’ in Japanese, to the design of Hukosai – is the best octopus skewer in town. Fresh fish, right from the charcoal, served with an amazing jalapeño seaweed sauce: you may overlook the city, but you can taste the sea. That touch of spiciness is totally OK during a sultry night out and sweating is allowed. The Tako to Ama likes to swim in our Japanese Little Geisha cocktail, a perfect match created by our talented bartenders. The sparkling rosé sake, pear and St Germain (elderflower) liquor makes you fresh and fruity for another long summer night.”
