Entrepreneur Casper Reinders (Haarlem The Netherlands, 1970) is one of the most inspiring hospitality men of Amsterdam. At a very young age his career started with cafe Fortuyn in Haarlem and soon the first hip, design-noodle bar NOA, and Asian oriented Moko followed. In 2003 the ambitious hospitality entrepreneur opened iconic club Jimmy Woo, a non indispensable concept in the Dutch capital. In 2009, Casper put a new concept on the map: brasserie BoCinq. A French-Arabic fusion restaurant where you can lounge besides dining. One year later Reinders opened restaurant and bar Lion Noir in the Reguliersdwarsstraat with a city garden and refined French cuisine. The restaurant won the Venuez Best Interior Design Award in 2011. In the same street as Lion Noir, hotspot/lounge- and nightclub Ludwig opened in 2011. In April 2012 Reinders won the Venuez Hospitality & Style Award 2011 for Leading Hospitality Man of the Year. In December 2012, the Mexican Restaurant Rose's Cantina (re)opened in the Reguliersdwarsstraat.
