It's usually fairly straightforward to classify a restaurant or club, but VLLA is an exception to the rule. This cultural haven wears so many hats it's hard to describe. It's a Dutch lunchroom, a restaurant, a theatre and a bar and children also haven't been forgotten at this former funeral home. Where silence and grief once prevailed, the tunes of up-and-coming bands can be heard in what used to be the morgue. If that sends a chill down your spine just consider the reasonable prices and the currently cosy atmosphere of this renovated space. If it were located in the centre of Berlin VLLA would be an instant success, but in Amsterdam it's as yet one of the city's last undiscovered little gems.
