Why locals love it

Roest is a place where you can go to escape the rush, without having to leave the centre. A place where no one judges anyone. There is a self service bar with a variety of beers brewed in Amsterdam. The interior constantly changes because Roest is open to everyone's creative input. Oh and don't be surprised when people take off their shoes inside..

Why you should visit it

You won't find many tourists here, simply because it is a bit tricky to find Roest. But the journey here pays off immediately when you walk in. Cosy fire place, old cinema seats, second hand Chesterfield couches, cool art and funny details in the interior. It seems innocent, but at night it can get quite naughty.

Special tip

Visit Roest on a sunny summer day and sunbathe, barbecue or play beach volleyball on the the city beach.

Roest is the perfect place to go to spend your afternoon and to stay until late. They have nice food, drinks and beers. There is a small-medium night club inside the space where they host small parties with no entrance fee. There is also an open space outside perfect for summer days. Roest also organizes big nice parties on their bigger space, but you have to pay for them. Tip: go with a group because the dishes are quite expensive, but it is enough to share with 1 or 2 more people depending on what you choose. Tip 2: The place is a bit far from the city center (30min walking), but it is possible to catch a tram from the central station, line 26.

Take a dip in the canal, or relax in a conglomerate of hammocks, Roest is the best place to relax on the rare sunny day in Amsterdam.
