Het West-Indisch Huis
Het West-Indisch Huis has a long and rich history. The location owes its name to the West India Company, which was housed here during the 17th century. Now, almost four hundred years later, this monumental building is a one-of-a-kind event venue. It is home to spacious meeting rooms, sublime catering (Matter of TASTE catering), a bar and restaurant (Café Nieuw Amsterdam) and a spectacular courtyard.
The history of the national monument that is Het West-Indisch Huis dates back to the 17th century, when the West India Company (WIC) first commissioned the construction of Fort New Amsterdam on the island of Manhattan – which later grew to become the city of New York.
