Tolbar Amsterdam: nice new eat cafe in De Pijp

28 July 2015

your new (second) living room in De Pijp: Tolbar Amsterdam!

Cafe Tolbar Amsterdam is as the name suggests located in de Tolstraat. In the heart of De Pijp. I really like this, since De Pijp is my second home :-)! Tolbar is settled in Cinetol. A creative bird nest in Amsterdam. They created an environment where self-employed people can work, but there is also a stage for cultural programming. Every week there is something else going on: from concerts and poetry to movie nights. And now you can combine one of the activities with a nice meal at Tolbar!

Tolbar has a lovely outdoor terrace with picnic tables and large wooden benches and chairs. The interior inside has a vintage look. Many plants, old school chairs and in the middle of the room a beautiful large wooden table. Feels like a living room cafe; very warm and homy!


Tip: keep an eye on the facebook page of Tolbar! They organise fun events as a pub quiz and regularly lit up the barbecue!
