Altijd in de Buurt | Their always around
When I walked in for the first time, the first thing I noticed was the big wooden tree with a swing (!). I mean, a swing. Who doesn’t love that! Besides the crazy swing, big jungle plants, Altijd in de buurt has proven to be a great place to sit down and get some work done.
The owners of the place Tobias Prins and Roger Brown are both well-known names in the music scene. When one was looking for a new office place, and the other wanted to offer his client more than boring coffee, this place came together. Altijd in de buurt is a space where they can both do their meetings with clients and since rent has to be paid (duh); they also have a bar and kitchen where you order whatever your heart desires. Well, as long it is on the menu of course ;). From savory finger foods to butterscotch pancakes to healthy avocado chicken sandwiches. The menu does changes now and then, so make sure you drop by to see what they have to offer!
The high ceiling and the big window give this place very spacious feel, and one of my favorite spots is the big platform/staircase. They incorporated some little tables into the design, so it’s perfect if you are in need of some me-time. When you are with a bigger party, or you need a place to have meetings, you can make a reservation for one of the wooden cabins on the second floor. This place has enough power sockets, fast and steady Wifi and coffee from Giraffe (or tea specials).
AND, they are open till late, so after work, you can stay and enjoy some (alcoholic) drinks and dinner. I mean, work hard, play harder right.
