CT Coffee and Coconuts: Celebrate your birthday at this cool and awesome location! CT Coffee and Coconuts is situated in an old movie theatre in De Pijp. It’s very spacious and the drinks are tasty. Do you prefer a more intimate party? Ask if you can reserve the third floor, it’s perfect to chill out with your friends on some huge beanbags. Get some edamame, fish charcuterie, and grilled hummus for on the table and everyone’s happy! Tip: start your b-day party around 16.00/17.00 because CT Coffee and Coconuts closes at 23.00.

‘t Blauwe Theehuis: ‘t Blauwe Theehuis is such a unique location. Surely you know it very well, it’s that cool round building in the middle of the Vondelpark. From Monday until Saturday it’s possible to hire the top floor for your party. Arrange a DJ and your party is complete!

Vergulden Eenhoorn: This city farm in Amsterdam East is the place where you’ll want to celebrate your birthday in Amsterdam! At the Vergulden Eenhoorn it’s very cosy both in- and outside.

Very nice!


Summer spots: Do you want to celebrate your birthday at a relaxed spot? Where you can sit at large picnic tables or huge beanbags right next to the water and in the sun? Go to one of our favourite summer hotspots when it’s your birthday in the summer! Pllek, Hannekes Boom, Waterkant or Cafe de Ceuvel. The atmosphere is always great, the bites are good and affordable, and the beer is tasty. The spots are also good in wintertime. Are you celebrating your b- day on a Sunday? Go to Pllek in North! Here they have live music every Sunday!

Pacific Parc Amsterdam

Pacific Park: Pacific Park at Westergasterrein is always a cool place to be! It’s usually pretty crowded, so it’ll feel like a lot of people are at your party :-) The weekends are perfect to celebrate your birthday because there is live music or a DJ. Saves you money on organising music, great!
