ROTTERDAM, 7 July 2023 – A new destination for leisure and dining is set to open this weekend in the heart of Rotterdam, offering a unique blend of entertainment, food, and stunning views of the city.
The Rooftop at GHG: A new city landmark
The Groot Handelsgebouw (GHG), an iconic building in Rotterdam, will be the home of the city's latest attraction, The Rooftop at GHG. From 8 July, residents and visitors to the city will have the opportunity to explore this vibrant new space, which offers a range of games for all ages, as well as a restaurant and bar. The Rooftop at GHG will continue the GHG's legacy as a bustling hub for activities and dining options. A monthly programme of exciting events, lively drinks, and artistic activations will be available until December.
Elevated comfort and dining
The restaurant and bar, managed by Spinning Group and Smoke Masters, will provide a full menu and a bar with a wide range of options. Guests will be able to enjoy their meals and cocktails in the colourful indoor space or on the sun-drenched terraces, both offering stunning views of Rotterdam's city centre. The menu will feature a variety of dishes, from comfort food to Mediterranean cuisine, prepared in the open kitchen and at two bustling food stations.
Activities for all ages
“Our aim is to create places that are fundamentally local, humble, layered, colourful, exciting, ambitious, and inclusive,” said Michael Phillips, president of Jamestown, which owns the GHG building. “The Rooftop at GHG is our translation of this theory for Rotterdam. With a vibrant and playful atmosphere full of colourful elements, the entire concept becomes an immersive experience that stimulates the senses.”
