Theater Amsterdam

Theater Amsterdam made its debut with the premiere of ANNE on 8 May 2014. Located on the waterfront just outside central Amsterdam in the Westelijke Houthavens district, the theater is the only venue in Amsterdam where shows can enjoy an uninterrupted run. With a hall covering 4,200 m2 (over 45,000 sq ft), Theater Amsterdam offers unique opportunities for massive sets and the latest theatrical techniques. Theater Amsterdam is easily accessed by boat, car, public transport and bike. In the restaurant Boven de Planken we serve lunch or dinner before the performance.


Welcome to our modern, congenially furnished foyer. The bar serves an ample selection of drinks and refreshments. A range of coffees and teas are offered, along with a wide choice of organic wines and special creatively-presented food bites. Innovative elements in the foyer include a row of Amsterdam canal houses as an exclusively designed 3D snack wall and a mobile wine bar. Restrooms and a cloakroom are also located in the foyer.


Theater Amsterdam’s restaurant Boven de Planken is located on the suspended second floor and offers a view across the river IJ. Before the performance we serve lunch and dinner at the restaurant.
Opening times of Boven de Planken are Thursday&Friday from 17h30 - 22h00, Saturday 11h30 - 22h00 and Sunday 11h30 - 21h00. When reserving your ticket for the performance you can also reserve your lunch or dinner at the restaurant. If you are not going to the performance but would like to seperately book a table in the restaurant please contact +31 (0)20 705 50 50.
