The Venue

Café Batavia 1920

Café Batavia is a small and intimate venue with a private party feel. A traditional Dutch “brown café” housed in a listed art deco building dating to 1920, our venue stands opposite Amsterdam Centraal Station and is just a few doors away from the impressive Basilica of St Nicholas, which dominates the station's skyline. Café Batavia has an excellent selection of bottled, draught beers and other beverages and serves great food until 21:30 each day. We'll be taking over Café Batavia for our mini weekender, which means two rooms for music as well as the front bar.

We're taking over all of Café Batavia for the mini weekender, which means two music rooms (both facing out onto a canal) and the bar, which will ensure the whole weekend has a private party feel.
