cafe de parel
De Parel is a silent invitation to experience without expectations or presumptions. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a bar, café, bistro or gastro-pub; whether it’s chic, modern or casual. If you come here to enjoy a glass of wine or a bite, that should be the only focal point – this is a place where you’ll find a real connection to the producers of the vegetables on your plate, the makers of the ceramics and the wine, the owner and host Ruudje, and the Chef himself. That is why everything centers around the bar. In addition to a broad selection of natural and biodynamic wines served from behind the bar – the menu includes over 60 – you can see your food being prepared as if it were a Japanese omakase kitchen.

Café de Parel was originally a typical Amsterdam ‘brown bar’ with an old-fashioned dark interior and low lighting. The traditional stained-glass windows and monumental tile tableaus create the perfect setting for the new Parel. Its new contemporary design elements blend into the existing space and bring Café de Parel into the current era. The modern interior combines smoked massive oak, messing details and the existing tiles with unfinished concrete and strips of purple/grey mdf to create a style that unites tradition, homeliness and authenticity.

The café is only 44m² and everything is prepared in sight. This starting point was translated into a long, central bar that accommodates the food preparations and the substantial wine selection. There is no hard line between the two functions.
