About Waterkant

Waterkant is a bar-restaurant in the center of Amsterdam, inspired by De Waterkant in Paramaribo. Inclusiveness and diversity is important to us. This is reflected in our staff, our partners and our programming. We want to represent this principle even more in our organisation and in our (online) communication. That's why we recently created a new branding branch. This branch is dedicated to our society and community of Waterkant. It includes a music platform, parties and events such as ADE and Pride, online content, live music, merchandise and much more…
