VLLA is a bar, stage and club in Amsterdam where creativity can blossom. An easygoing venue that is rough around the edges, where almost anything goes.


VLLA is currently closed due to covid. Hopefully we will be dancing through the night with you again soon!

Once the measurements allow, we will start organising covid-proof private events again! Interested in hosting one? Contact @onnovandergrinten ⁠on 06-46108272 for more info.⁠


On Fridays and Saturdays you can join us for intimate jazz or popconcerts, mini festivals, theatre, dinners with live performances and dance/houseparties. Please check the VLLA agenda for our current program and opening times.


Sometimes on Friday, VLLA hosts VLLA OP VRIJDAG (VLLA ON FRIDAY) with Amsterdam based DJ’s playing their finest tunes. Next to that, sometimes you can enjoy art and performances, dinnermovies, VJ’s, etcetera!  Because we like to keep it low-key at VLLA op Vrijdag, we serve delicious affordable meals, and the entrance is free of charge.


You can book the entire venue for private events, dinners, brainstorm meetings and presentations. Occasionally, you can also book our venue for private events on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, although we prefer programming that’s open to the public.


An abandoned funeral home has been renovated into the creative space we have today, where all the spaces, and many materials, have been remodelled and given a new destination. The rooms previously used to allow families to mourn in private have been refashioned into working spaces where several creative entrepreneurs now have a positive, comfortable working environment. We even found a good use for the cooled storage, and it’s now used as a photo studio.


Our logo, the main visual on our website, our flyers and business cards, up to the design of the facade of our building and toilet walls, are made by Mattijs Arts (Stoepkrijt).


Bar, food, club, podium // hard to find, easy to love!
