Social Kitchen Amsterdam en Rotterdam

In a world where business has become dominant, we also have a need for reflection, inspiration and encounters that brings us together. To get the best out of ourselves.

De Nieuwe Poort is a house for encounters and inspiration, in the center of the financial district of Amsterdam and Rotterdam. On the one hand we are an living room, on the other hand a cultural centrum with dialogues, debates and discussions about philosophy, literature and society. We like to use old sources, to reflect on our modern times. Those sources, like the Greek philosophers and big European thinkers, have proven their use over and over to understand the essentials of life that keeps us moving.
