No being able to welcome my buddies, to see them chuckling, enjoying and muttering, that has been difficult for me. I am therefore pleased that I will finally be able to open the doors of my garden oasis for you soon! Although in a slightly slimmed-down form, but a little less also looks good on me…
As you may understand, it is not business as usual, so I ask a little bit of flexibility from you. Don’t worry, you don’t have to put your legs on your neck right away! Just kidding, you pancake! But it may be that you’re only allowed to drop by if you have reserved a spot, or that we have promised your table to another lucky bastard after you. That kind of flexibility. Together we make this city a bit better, right?
At the moment I’m figuring out how and what, so keep an eye on me!
Can’t wait to see you again!
GAPP is a rooftop beergarden, located high above the bustling city of Amsterdam.
Bring all your friends to the 8th floor and enjoy the radiant sun, the beautiful view, the extensive beer menu and the tastiest dishes.
WHAT's In a name
The story of Hotel Casa starts in 1957, with four friends and one dream; creating affordable student housing in Amsterdam.
One of those four holds an extra special place in our hearts; Gabbe Scheltema. Founder of Casa, purebred Amsterdam, our ‘gap’ (typical Amsterdam for ‘buddy’) and involved with us until the last moment.
Now, 64 years later, he lives on in our green rooftop garden, high above the bustling city.
From the 1st of June you’re welcome back at GAPP Amsterdam! Due to the current situation we kindly ask our guests to make a reservation. Do you feel like popping by with more than 4 people, please send us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Later GAPP!
Rooftop terrace GAPP serves both comfort food such as burgers, fries and snacks. For drinks we serve soft drinks, wines and some mixed drinks but our specialty is a wide variety of local produced craft beers.
Want to see what kind of food and beverages we serve on GAPP? Go to gapp-amsterdam.nl and check out the menu.
Sorry, but we don't take reservations at GAPP. We'll promise you the vibe is pretty relaxed, so in case you have to wait for a spot the waiting is worth your while. Plus, you can usually squeeze in somewhere. Take it easy!
Excellent question! Well informed we must say! We decided to honor one of our founding fathers, Gabbe Scheltema, by naming our rooftop to him. GAPP, derived from Gabbe, is also Mokums (typical vocabulary from Amsterdam) for friend or buddy. Get it? In case you want to know more, please come to GAPP and we'll tell you more about it!
