Meet, eat, engage and unwind

De Nieuwe Poort is a restaurant and social workplace. It’s a place to meet and hire rooms. It’s also a research institute that addresses social issues. You can come to us not only to unwind and recharge, but also to gain new inspiration and step outside your social bubble. Sounds confusing? We understand, but it’s actually very simple. Everything we do is the result of one conviction: The world is a better place when we take care of each other.
