The name says it a little already: the city park Westerpark is located in the West of Amsterdam. Not that far west from the city center luckily, since it is a beautiful park for a walk, and it contains enough cafes to enjoy time with friends! The Westerpark dates from 1890 and it’s where you can also find the large entertainment location Westergasfabriek. There often concerts and cultural events are held, for example the Amsterdam Fashion Week, and Awakenings. In this blog I take you to one of the cafes located in Westerpark: the Wester Wijnfabriek. It’s a wine bar, with a nice terrace in the summer, and it offers lots of warm seats inside the cafe during winter! Let’s take a closer look.
In October 2015 this wine bar opened its doors! The Wester Wijnfabriek is located in an former cottage, which gives it a classic special look. The wine bar offers 15 wines per glass and lots more per bottle. They adapt smart to the fact their cafe is located in the park: you can order a wine bottle-to-go to take with you if you want to sit and enjoy your wine elsewhere in the park! Apart from enjoying a nice glass of wine, the Wester Wijnfabriek offers a lunch, and a lot of tasty snacks which match perfect with your wine. What they find important is that the production process of the wines is as natural as possible. A lot of wines of their card are biodynamic, or biological, as is also the food. It is also possible to buy wines in their shop and to attend a wine tasting event.
Do you want to visit the Wester Wijnfabriek yourself? Or do you want to browse some more photo’s and reviews first? Visit their website: there you can also find a link to their Facebook and Instagram page! On the Facebook page you can also check when the next tasting event will take place and find other practical information. For now I say: choose your wine, add a snack, and cheers!
