Toren Overhoeks Amsterdam Noord garden and bar now open!
Finally!! Toren Overhoeks Amsterdam opened the doors for the bar with garden right on the banks of the IJ. This project of ID&T founder Duncan Stutterheim will be epic! There’s so much talking about it already… The former Shell toren ‘Overhoeks’ will become a new 24h club, a restaurant, a home and offices for creatives. At Toren Overhoeks Amsterdam the agenda will be very divers! From jam sessions to workshops and markets. And not to forget about the great parties with the best DJ’s. De Toren Overhoeks Amsterdam is legendary already for being one of the biggest new creative initiatives in Amsterdam. Last weekend I went to check it out and had a few drinks in the garden. You can sit at one of the picnic tables or wooden couches to chill and relax while enjoying a drink. The crowd at De Toren Overhoeks Amsterdam is a fun mix of tourists thet went to the EYE, hipsters and yuppies. Are you a creative yourself? Go check it out and see if you can contribute something to De Toren Overhoeks Amsterdam! I LOVE the vibe there… it’s nonchalant and I would name it typically Amsterdam North style :-).
