UPDATE: due to the current Covid-19 emergency, the Yays First Heartbeat event will be postponed until further notice. The related social media contest is suspended.

If we say "home" and you think "kitchen", you are ready to be our special guest on First Heartbeat, the opening party of Yays Issy, our new concierged boutique apartment building in Issy-les-Moulineaux.

There are no doubts that a kitchen is the heart and soul of a home, it is the room where people come together, take care of each other, share good times and make the best (and tastiest) memories.
That’s why we are calling on you to help us give the heart of Yays Issy its “first heartbeat”, by warming up its kitchens!

When we open, we open our hearts! Have a look at our First Heartbeat event for Yays Entrepothaven, our new location in Amsterdam East. 

Now it's your turn to strike a Yays First Heartbeat!

On May 6th, during the official opening party of Yays Issy, we will give four different cooking workshops in four of our shining-new kitchens.
On the kitchen brigades: neighbours, bloggers, Yays concierges, …and maybe you, as a winner of the First Heartbeat social media contest.

How to join:

  1. Follow @yaysapartments on Instagram
  2. Like the First Heartbeat contest post
  3. Share a kitchen memory in the comments and tag a friend who loves cooking and getting together. 

The winners will be picked among the comments with the most likes and comments, and based on the best kitchen stories shared. 

Together with the friend you tagged, you will be our special guest for the entire party, with access to a rooftop dinner and other fun activities to discover the world of Yays and the Issy neighbourhood. 

Don't forget to participate and share!

Yays is a hospitality brand offering premium serviced apartments in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, and soon in even more neighbourhoods off the tourist tracks in Antwerp, The Hague, and other European cities. 

At Yays, we believe that the most meaningful (travel) experiences are the ones you can share with others. We believe that, even with millions of tourists visiting cities every day, it is still possible for curious travellers to discover and experience a destination in a way that’s personal, surprising and unique. It just takes an apartment where you can feel right at home and a little help from the locals. A caring Yays Concierge can introduce you to the real spirit of the neighbourhood and unlock its hidden treasures for you, with the help of a special little book called the Yays Neighbourhood Guide.


NB: Please be informed that First Heartbeat may be filmed. By participating in this event, you agree to be filmed. The footage may be used by Yays in their internal as well as external communication.
Terms&Conditions apply. By entering the contest, you confirm you have read and accepted the full Terms & Conditions, available here (click to open).
