Volks Tip: Amsterdam Roest


We ask our Volk to share their favourite Amsterdam spot. From brown bars to pumping parties, who knows what our eclectic mix of characters will recommend… This week: Jennifer Haers (28) from Sales, Events and Banqueting shares her spot for a perfect day in the sun: Amsterdam Roest. Jennifer: “When the sun is shining this is the closest thing to a holiday”.

Amsterdam Roest is located in the East and sits in an impressive historic, Industrial Estate. It has been open since 2011 and is constantly hosting surprising events and exciting new concepts in it’s large Warehouse. But, that’s not all, Roest also consists of a cosy cafe and a perfectly relaxing beach area next to a (swimmable!) canal. It is just one big creative, urban oasis.


Jennifer loves the relaxed vibe, the nice people and the fact you can stay there all day and night. “Did I mention the cocktails?” she says to me after the third time of mentioning how good the cocktails are.

Roest is original and versatile to say the least. The carefree environment oozes out of it’s rusty joints and when the sun is shining, the playground vibe comes to life. This Wednesday 1st of July, you can join in a huge water fight and dive into the water by a slip’n’slide. Yes, that is all true.

Who’s Jennifer?
Our small, very stylish and extremely sociable ‘Jen’ works for Banqueting/Sales/Events. You can normally hear her coming from the high heels she manages to wear all day. She goes where the fun is, likes to hang with friends, drink wine in the sun (or cocktails at Roest).


She likes to talk and will often change the subject before you’ve even realised, “I can be talking about elephants or something and then I will see a poster or a flower and then I start with a story about that”. Well we don’t mind, we love her stories and her positive energy.
