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 Red Light District that tasted so good as the burgers of restaurant Burgerfabriek. Well done, guys!

Did you know that restaurant BurgerFabriek used to be a cannabis 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 some coffeeshops located in the entrance of Amsterdam, are not allowed to sell cannabis anymore.

We think it’s shame that these specific coffeeshops aren’t allowed to sell weed any more, but sometimes it leads to something really good. Like Restaurant BurgerFabriek! 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: Go here with friends and tap your own beer. 

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.

The table in the front of the restaurant is definitely best because you’ll have a great view on the Warmoesstraat. In the summer time you can sit outside or just go inside and pick the big round table next to the window with its own beer tap. Great for people watching!
