In the predominantly brown space of theater café De Smoeshaan near the Leidseplein, you always hear a lot of buzz. Between, before and after performances, actors and visitors come to go through the play or other topics. At the round tables, young people are talking to old hands from the trade; theater folk with theater science student. Mostly posters of plays on the wall. You can eat well here both upstairs and downstairs, from the fixed menu or one of the daily changing dishes.
With a sunny terrace on the water, an illustrious history and conviviality until after midnight, it is a popular place in Amsterdam. Located around the corner from the Leidseplein, De Smoeshaan is ideal to combine with a visit to Theater Bellevue, DeLaMar, ITA, Paradiso, the Melkweg, Cinecenter, Pathé City or De Balie.
For groups of 15 to 50 people there is a separate room on the first floor that you can rent for a drink, presentation or meal.
