Meeting & Events

The best accessible hospitality, meeting and event location in the Netherlands!

You can meet in a unique way at Grand Café Restaurant 1e Klas, the hidden gem of Amsterdam, because the restaurant is located on platform 2B at Amsterdam Centraal Station. The authentic location has an excellent restaurant and two private rooms: the 1st Class Waiting Room and the 4 Seasons Waiting Room.

Between 1881 and 1889 the famous Dutch Chief Government Architect Dr. Pierre Cuypers designed the Central Station in Amsterdam and still a lot of his architecture is left. His craftsmanship is praised as the man who breathed new life into architecture in the Netherlands. Influential and inspirational for many such as H.P. Berlage and Michel de Klerk. We are proud that a part of its architecture can still be admired in our restaurant.

Grand Café Restaurant 1e Klas is located in the old waiting rooms, which have been completely restored. A place full of inspiration and authenticity! A place where presentations and meetings immediately give a unique feeling. In 1e Klas it still feels like you are in the 19th century and as eye catcher it has beautiful ornaments, murals, wood paneling and an impressive Victorian bar.
