The Burgerfabriek is one of the newest places in the area. It was opened in april this year (2015) and is located in the heart of the Red Light District. The trendy interior was done by Buro Blasé Loeff and Klaassen Interiors. It was exactly what one of the owners (Tommie van Beest) had in mind. A real eye-cather is the chandelier, the open kitchen and more importantly: You can tap your own beer here! Just brilliant!
The first time we visited the Burgerfabriek was this summer and we were really amazed by the quality of the burgers. We haven’t had burgers before in this area that tasted so good as the burgers of restaurant Burgerfabriek. Well done, guys!
Did you know that restaurant BurgerFabriek used to be a cannabis coffee shop? It was Sheeba which was located here. It was forced by the local government to close its doors, because of the so called project 1012. Which ment that most/all coffeeshops located in the entrance of Amsterdam, are not allowed to sell cannabis anymore.
We think it’s shame that these coffeeshops aren’t allowed to sell weed any more, but sometimes it leads to something really good. Like the Burger Fabriek! The former director of coffeeshop Sheeba heard about Amsterdam’s project 1012 and decided to open a new restaurant in the Red Light District. He was first thinking to open a tapas bar, but then later he changed his mind and founded restaurant Burgerfabriek.
Tip from one of our local guides: Try a burger with Old Amsterdam cheese. Definitely one of the best Dutch cheeses.
These international burgers are served with big Dutch fries or baked potato.
You can also make your own hotdog here. Choose between 11 different toppings, like:
The BurgerFabriek is the only place in the Red Light District, where you can have a table with your own beer tap. They have 4 tables inside which offers these personal beers taps: There is one big round table in front, it can take 8-9 persons. There also two big bar tables in the back, also for 8-9 persons. And then the BurgerFabriek also has another table which allows 5 persons. These tables with beer taps are quite convenient, especially when you’re in the Dam with your mates.
The table in the front of the restaurant is definitely best, as you’ll a great view on the Warmoes street as well. Great for people watching!
We can reserve a table for you at Restaurant BurgerFabriek in Amsterdam. You can choose between a table with or without a beer tap.
