Bar Baggerbeest is part of the new creative hub Baggerbeest on Zeeburgereiland. The island, situated next to IJburg, is evolving into a pleasant area with increasing eateries. And Bar Baggerbeest is a very welcome addition.

Why Bar Baggerbeest deserves a spot on your Amsterdam bucket list

At the edge of Amsterdam lies Zeeburgereiland, a delightful spot. You’re still in the city, but you feel the fresh breeze from the IJ river through your hair. And despite being not far from Amsterdam Central Station at this spot, you feel like you’re in a different world. Over a century ago, the silt from the port area formed a new piece of land where this creative hub is now located.

A place to connect

Baggerbeest is set to become the creative hub of Zeeburgereiland and the surrounding islands. It will be an artistic place featuring an innovative, educational, and cultural program. A stage will also provide space for (children’s) theatre, spoken word, and other performances.

Part of the menu is already known – you can even order their homemade pizzas. From Margherita to Diavola and La Piccante – the locals are already flocking to Baggerbeest in large numbers. Besides homemade pizzas, Baggerbeest will serve more than just Italian delicacies once opened. They’re hinting at New Amsterdam (street) food awaiting their guests, along with organic wines, fair-trade coffee, local beer, and Italian granita. We hope to secure a spot on their vast terrace as soon as possible – count us in!
