about BADHU

BADHU is a restaurant serving small Arabian dishes to share (mezze). We work with several fusions combining flavors from Morocco, Egypt, Algaria, Lebanon and so on. Pair our dishes with a Moroccan beer, our own BADHU brew, a local draft or a classic Kornuit. We also serve Moroccan wines, homemade cocktails with an Arabian twist, fresh lemonades and healthy smoothies. BADHU is open for breakfast, lunch, diner, drinks, meetings and you even can spend the night in our beautiful hotel.

HISTORY

BADHU is located in a beautiful corner building and was built in 1927. It was designed by Petrus Johannes Houtzagers in the renowned 'Amsterdamse School' style. Up to the mid sixties the building was used as a bath house for the neighbourhood. Afterwards it was transformed into a health centre and in 2008 we renovated it to become a restaurant. The atmosphere is warm and eclectic with an industrial vintage decor enriched with elements of the Middle East. You can either lay back into one of the comfortable couches or take a seat at tables made from local wood paired with Eames chairs. These front areas are former waitingrooms; this is where the visitors got changed before entering the bath house.

When the weather allows it you can enjoy the sun from sunrise to sunset at our corner terrace. BADHU hotel and Loft are located on the first floor.
