de Doelen Studio reopens

De Doelen is a regarded concert hall and convention center. It’s mainly known as a venue for classical music, as it’s the home of The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. But the monumental building is also a vibrant inner-city meeting place because of de Doelen Studio. It reopens Friday, April 22.

De Doelen Studio is the smallest venue in the concert hall. It’s a vibrant spot for live music, debate, food, and art. Director Janneke Staarink explains: “The Studio is for everyone who likes music, a good conversation, and good food. On Wednesday we make room for kids and Thursday is for students. Rotterdam Soos is a new monthly talk show, and important issues concerning the city are discussed. On Friday nights, we give away the key to new talents under the name Club Key and from 9 May onwards, we present Monday Night Jams in collaboration with Epitome Entertainment. In short, there is a lot going on in the Studio again and everyone is welcome!”

There are several recurring events going on. Epitome Entertainment organises Monday Night Jams.

Kids can come by every Wednesday. There is a chess club from 4.30 PM.

On Thursday students can first study and then enjoy a cutting edge band

With Club Key de Doelen gives room to various initiatives in the city. From variety shows to Reggae Nights. By popular demand, top chef Maher al Sabbagh also prepares his famous buffet of Syrian and Sicilian dishes every Friday.

Every Saturday there is a live radio show with hosts Fidan Ekiz and Wieger Hemmer.

Sunday is for Culture Vulture. An alternating cultural afternoon program.

The entrance to de Doelen Studio is at Schouwburgplein 52.
