‘t Blauwe Theehuis is an eye-catching 1930s Modernist building nestled in the Vondelpark where you can relax with a beer or wine and a casual snack.
‘T BLAUWE THEEHUIS • THE SPACESHIP CAFE IN VONDELPARK
Locals and visitors alike love Blauwe Theehuis. After a stroll through the Vondelpark with a friend or a romp with your dog, grab a seat on their terrace and have a drink. There’s no table service on the terrace so you’ll have to send your friend to queue for you.
For a casual lunch in the sunshine I love the hummus sandwich!
Most visitors to ‘t Theehuis probably wonder about the unique architecture. The building has an interesting history. Built by architect brothers Banders in 1937, the style is a Dutch version of Bauhaus. The building is now a rijksmonument. The top floor of the Blauwe Theehuis used to be the residence of the owner, Piet Bosters. In 1997 he was found murdered there, and the case was never solved. After his death, the top floor was remodeled to become part of the restaurant.
Sit on the top floor to get a view over the terrace among the treetops.
Sometimes they host dinners or concerts, check the Blauwe Theehuis agenda for special events.
