A Beautiful Mess AMSTERDAM


At A Beautiful Mess Amsterdam you can enjoy delicious food in a special place: the launderette of the former Bijlmer Bajes. Last summer, we transformed our terrace into the unique corona-proof Bajes Beach Club.


Unfortunately we are currently closed to visitors. Behind closed doors, we always continue with our social work. We work with people with a refugee background who are resilient, but also vulnerable. The coaches of A Beautiful Mess ensure that our people do not become isolated. At a safe distance and yet close by.


Due to renovation it is not possible to rent our space. We hope to be back at the end of the year. Our venue covers 300 square meters and is suitable for small to medium-sized events. The room can be brightened or darkened upon request and is perfect for product launches, break-out sessions, long-table dinner parties, a big buffet, a party with a DJ – or pretty much anything else you can think of!


Our location is a five-minute bike ride away from Amstel station. The metro stops around the corner and there is plenty of (free!) parking space available.

Opening hours: temporarily closed to the public
