Finding us is really easy...exit the central station on the back side ('Blijdorpzijde'), turn right (onto 'Proveniersstraat') and just keep going. Straight after passing a former railway, you find us on your right.

Located Near

We are located in Zoho, an up and coming area on the north side of Rotterdams city center. Lot's of things are happening around,exhibitions & party at our neighbor Roodkapje, live music at close by Bird and even in our own building we have little art design and vintage shops.
It's a perfect location to explore the city center as well as the 'Old North', one of the nicest parts of town.
