Just when you thought that only Amsterdam North, East and West still had room for awesome new venues to open a brand new place opened its doors in De Pijp this week. In fact, it’s so huge and so well located it will literally blow your mind. I bet very few people saw this coming and in the two years that Coffee and Coconuts has been open, it firmly established itself as one of De Pijp’s most popular hangouts.

Located inside the former Ceintuur Theater, which used to be a cinema for many years but fell into disrepair in more recent times, Coffee & Coconut is a very interesting concept that tries to blend the best of urban coffee house with elements of a funky beach shack. It might not come as a huge surprise if you know that the three founders, Bas, Ruud and Jasper have a mixed history of working with Hutspot and owning their own Zandvoort based beach club.

The inside of the former film house with its beautiful art deco façade has been transformed into a four level hang out that offers lots of cozy sofas, large communal tables and more private seating opportunities. Whether you’re coming in to work on your laptop or to catch up with friends, there’s enough room for everyone and funnily enough it never feels crowded.

Although the team behind Coffee & Coconuts tried to turn this wonderful space into a modern and urban venue they kept certain elements from the former cinema interior including the large vents and lamps in the ceiling or the stained glass windows above the main entrance.

While it lacks a terrace, it makes up for it with its huge and breezy interior, excellent dishes and large selection of drinks. The current coffee offering comes from White Label and local guests such as Friedhats. A definite must visit!
