Pllek is an open-minded, surprising, warm and creative cultural hang-out that focuses on healthy living and sustainability. Pllek serves honest food – mostly organic – and cooks up an inspiring mix of music, movies, exhibitions, workshops, yoga, events for kids, mini-festivals and much more. Our programming is always focused on interconnection, (cultural) awareness and our shared world.
On Dec 1st, 2016, Pllek started its very own live stage next to the restaurant. Pllek Live Stage is a venue for curious music lovers. Bold and fresh, the new space offers great acoustics, an amazing view and a rugged yet welcoming vibe. Every first Thursday of the month, Pllek Live Stage presents a musical adventure powered by uplifting, powerful international acts and crossovers between contemporary electronica, western and non-western genres.
Home to Amsterdam’s biggest waterfront terrace, Pllek prides itself on Amsterdam’s best skyline view. Looking out over the water at the very tip of the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam-Noord, its industrial container architecture fits in nicely with its shipyard surroundings. But inside, Pllek manages to offer a cosy home-away-from-home and a unique, accessible attitude. An urban island vibe which invites you to open up and look around.
Pllek is open to anyone and everyone, and believes a certain measure of consciousness of the world beyond our direct surroundings is paramount to the future of our planet. They enjoy building bridges, sharing and connecting and believe that creating an environment where people can feel at home, safe enough to open their ears and eyes, is the best way to unite and celebrate the wonders of our world. No one is ever too old to learn, or play. The restaurant and programming department try to offer the kinds of flavors that are at once challenging and familiar through a mix of influences and styles, mixing the old with the new.
