Pllek in Amsterdam Noord - a cool city beach and lovely bar and restaurant made from shipping containers

Just a 20 minute ferry ride from Centraal Station, Pllek may give you the feeling of a beach holiday.

Pllek is an interesting concept. The restaurant is contructed of used shipping containers stacked to form a C shape, then covered by a high curving roof. The front of the restaurant opens to a beautiful IJ view with picnic tables and a “beach” of tan gravel.

On a sunny day, relax on the beach chairs in the gravel with a beer in hand and watch the ships go by on the IJ. You may want to kick off your shoes but we’d caution looking before you step, lots of rusty old nails hide in the gravel mix! When the weather is not so nice, cuddle up inside on the comfy sofas upstairs or down.
