A kitchen offering surprising food and drinks.
A kitchen with the best regional and sustainable suppliers.
A kitchen cooking with local colour, creative chefs and staff.
A kitchen that builds a community with surprising ingredients.

Food, drinks, music, art, events, staff and visitors are all ingredients on the menu to make a Capital Kitchen.

A vibrant place created by top designers


Being a part of Capital C, we enjoy the big advantage of being surrounded by thrilling art and design all the time. After all, Capital C is the place that connects the world of art with the creative industry. Being located in a former diamond exchange, you’ll sense the history from the very moment you enter the building. Before you even enter the building, you’ll notice something big at our doorstep: Peel Plaza.


Peel Plaza is designed by Gabriel Lester and it’s our way of having a terrace. A sculpture open to the public that invites the people passing by to enjoy the space.


We are open to the public. No entrance fee involved. No strings attached. We would just love you to come by.

Before making your way into our Kitchen, you'll walk through our revolving Art Gallery. Talking about a creative hub, our art gallery is curated by Amsterdam Art whose office is located inside our very own building.


The art doesn’t stop at our entrance, but we've created our own art space around you while you enjoy your dinner. It’s like having a dinner in the Rijksmuseum, well... kind of. Each and every table in Capital Kitchen where you sit, eat, drink, or hangout at has an irresistibly, beautifully decorated top. Our major design theme is “the inner human being” with the table tops representing strongly enlarged microscopic photos of human organs, all to be discovered by you.


Just like we love our food as local as possible, most of the art pieces are made by local artists such as: Esther Hoogendijk, Juul Krijer, Joep van Lieshout and Folkert de Jong. If you’re curious to find out more about the art in our kitchen, feel free to grab an issue of the latest Capital Kitchen newspaper, free available at the bar.
