Storytelling, music and cuisine from around the world

If it’s a unique cultural experience in Amsterdam you’re after, Mezrab Cultural Center has it! Located in Pakhuis Wilhelmina in Amsterdam's eastern docklands, it has grown into one of the best storytelling stages in the city.

Get off the hectic streets of Amsterdam and settle into Mezrab’s cozy floor cushions for a night of tall tales and real-life stories told by professional storytellers.

Enjoy live jazz, improvisation or world music from South America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Catch stand-up or improv comedians in the act. Or, get up off the floor and dance the night away.

The friendly, casual atmosphere at Mezrab means that visitors and locals alike will feel at home, no matter what’s on the agenda. Entrance to most events is free, but donations are welcome. That means you’ll have some extra change in your pocket for a drink at the bar or a delicious bowl of authentic Iranian soup!
