At this Amsterdam bar you bring your own food

DutchAmsterdam.nl — These are hard times, financially speaking, and many budget-conscience Amsterdammers have curtailed — if not completely banished — their regular visits to local bars and restaurants.

Why pay for a sandwich, a pizza or a steak dinner in a restaurant when you can make it at home for less than a fraction of the price?

Well, for one thing, people like the ambiance and camaraderie of eating out. They like the idea of having a home away from home, so to speak.

Enter Basis Amsterdam (basis = basic), a bar whose mission it is to create a ‘living room experience.’

Sure, plenty of other eateries try that approach, but Basis Amsterdam is just a bit different: at this bar you are encouraged to bring your own food. From home, from the supermarket, McDonald’s even.

Heck, you can even call a local pizza place to have your pizza’s delivered.

Basis has ovens and microwave ovens available, along with plates, cutlery and anything else you need to have a good meal.

Basis explains:

We love togetherness and ‘gezelligheid’ that is created by eating good food with good people. Basis offers this as well as freedom of choice: it’s called Bring Your Own Food and here’s how it works: You can eat anything you want in Basis.

Order a tasty bite from us, order from a delivery service, bring it from home or buy it at the supermarket. The choice is up to you. We have selected some of our favourite delivery company menus, just to make things easier for you.

Basis has plates, cutlery, ovens, microwaves and a phone for ordering: everything you need to enjoy your food. We’ll even do your dishes for you. And that’s Bring Your Own food in a nutshell.

Basis Amsterdam is located at Vijzelstraat 66, near Keizersgracht. That’s about a 10-minute stroll from Rembrandtplein.
