Winter time in Rotterdam can turn into a tough trip with rain and more rain and snow too. Luckily there are plenty of spots to go to find shelter and have an awesome time as well. Studio the Bakkerij is one of those spots. It’s a small gallery/theatre located at the Bergweg in the northern part of the city. CineNoord, a small cinema, also screens movies at Studio The Bakkerij. Another reason to go.
It’s a small hallway with a bigger area in the back. Once you get in you see a small bar surrounded by a couple of tables and chairs filled with locals having a chat about whatever is going on in their lives. Get yourself a beer, or a cup of coffee and it will feel like home in an instant. In the meantime you can check out some art exhibited in the gallery. The main reason for me to visit the studio is to watch a movie presented by CineNoord or to visit a standup comedy show. They also host cabaret, theatre plays for kids (and grownups, keeps you young!) and a show dedicated to musical talents from all over the country. As in many cases, check their website to get to know the program.
Grab your umbrella and head into the northern part of Rotterdam, Studio de Bakkerij is waiting for you.
