The venue

Many stories can be told about the famous Cristofori building. It has been proudly standing in its place since 1901 and has been an inspiring venue for musicians, artists and culture lovers since. But what matters most is how it will inspire you. Architect Hubert Crijns has turned this former concert hall into a striking contemporary loft.

Its arched windows offer stunning sunset views over the typical Amsterdam canals.


Several skylights illuminate the grand space which is set to make you feel at home. The spacious layout and its separate lounge provide a beautiful backdrop for group dinners, receptions and culinary events.


This high-end venue covers a total area of 340 m2, large enough for private dinners up to 100 people, but intimate enough to be able to provide the same to a group from 20 guests onwards – without losing its homely feeling. A walking dinner or reception is possible up to 150 people.
