Recently the Pop-Up Café opened its doors in West Amsterdam.
“The Pop-Up Café is a temporary exhibition that will take place from June 6 until August 2 at Meneer de Wit Gallery in Amsterdam. It’s a place that looks and functions as a café. A place where you can socialize, drink coffee, experience art, read books & attend events, all within the pop-up theme. Imagine foldable stools, paper walls, pop-up ceramics, one-off events, a pop-up bookstore, how-to lectures, dinners & brunches. The Pop-Up Café is an exhibition & café during the day, with lectures, presentations, movies, dinners, music and parties during the evening and night.”
You might wonder why all this is called an exhibition instead of just a bar, which it actually is. The reason could be the extremely organised country we’re living in. For a bar it’s incredibly difficult to get the necessary permits, while exhibitions, on the other hand, get funded by the same government.
