Ballroom – Balls, gin, food & music

Ballroom is often the place where I end up when hitting the Witte de Withstraat.

It has a nice vibe, attracts a good mix of ‘creative’ people and an international crowd. The place looks awesome and they serve over 100 different Gins – which makes it a great Gin&Tonic bar. 

It’s a delightful bar-food – style restaurant. Share their famous ball plate – if you like finger food. That’s what I like to do with my friends. Expect small meat, fish and veggie bites as bar food. Italian-style tasty mains and daily desserts. From €12.50 for a main dish. 

As gin is the thing here, you can choose any type of Gin from around the world, stylishly served in a glass full of ice and topped with the best tonics. Or try Pinkyrose – the first fresh handmade syrup from Rotterdam.

With nice weather, I enjoy sitting at their street terrace in the front – as it’s a good spot for people spotting. (Closed during the winter months but unique in this street is their GARDEN! in the back).

The contemporary interior is designed by a young creative firm ‘Instability.We.Trust‘ Rotterdam (iwt) and is full of clever ideas like a vertical wall-garden to create an inside-outside feel. Be aware of mosquitoes ;).

Every Friday and Saturday their resident DJs play funky, soul and groovy tunes to celebrate your weekend! Just follow their Facebook-page for the latest news and events.

Ballroom is located close to some of my favourite cafés like Zondebok en ‘t Zwarte Schaap and De Schouw.
