A restaurant that touches lives

In the heart of Amsterdam, at the Oosterdokseiland, we are building a new large restaurant community place with a separate kitchen for cooking workshops and an event space. We will open at the end of 2023.

The location is a triple-A location with an incredibly beautiful restaurant with a terrace and a view over the IJ. We are right next to Nemo, the OBA (public library) and Hanneke’s tree, on the ground floor of the new Campus of A downright dream location, courtesy of one of the world’s largest travel e-commerce companies. wants to make it easier for everyone to experience the world and that inclusive mission fits perfectly with the goals of A Beautiful Mess.

It will become a lively place, a busy restaurant with larger events, conferences and lectures where we can make even more impact with our learn-work programs.

Will you join us?

A Beautiful Mess

A Beautiful Mess was launched by Refugee Company. At our company and in our restaurants, people who once fled to the Netherlands gain practical experience. Our employees build up a network, learn to speak Dutch and find peace to discover what they want to do in the future. When they learn to be a cook or waiter, they find a job at another bar or restaurant, or go to school to get their (hospitality) diploma. If the restaurant business isn’t their cup of tea, that’s okay too: there’s more to life than food and drink.
