Amsterdam Roest: industrial city beach

23 February 2014

Amsterdam Roest one of our favourite city beaches!

Amsterdam has a few great city beaches. Amsterdam Roest is our favourite one on the East side of town. Roest is located at an industrial area with old warehouses. I just love the vibe at Amsterdam Roest! It’s so laid back and relaxed. A bit underground as well.

Have you been to Amsterdam Roest for lunch or dinner yet? The day restaurant at Amsterdam Roest is called Super De Bar and has a cool concept. Almost like a super market where you grab everything you like from the shelves and pay for it at the counter. In the evening you can get your drinks at the bar. Since this winter you can grab dinner at the Red Snack, a huge red English bus, where you can get snack food like a burger and roti roll with chicken. This big ass food truck is so cool! On Sunday’s there a special brunch concept at Amsterdam Roest between 12 – 4 pm. Expect sandwiches, eggs, fruit and pastry!

I can’t wait to go to Amsterdam Roest when the weather is nice and warm. It’s such a great hotspot to relax in one of the beach chairs with your feet in the sand. All year round there are super cool events at Roest! From markets to warehouse parties and festivals.
