In the heart of Strijp S, the former ‘Forbidden City’ of Philips, stands the Ketelhuis. Built in 1929 as a transformer house to distribute electricity for the surrounding factories. The adjacent Oliehuisje stored barrels of cooling oil used for the solid copper cables and transformers.

From 2011, the monumental industrial building is in use by Amaro Creative Industries. Since then, the Ketelhuis and its surroundings are constantly changing. Over the years, the Ketelhuis has gradually transformed into a restaurant, party space, wedding venue, bakery, cocktail bar, stage, coffee and lunch bar, and hosts all kinds of cultural events.

Het Ketelhuis is the living room of Strijp S.
A place where food and drink, art and culture meet.


The heart of het Ketelhuis is our restaurant.
Bread comes from our own bakery, honey from the bee colony on the roof, herbs from our own garden. Our chefs love to work with whole animals and honest vegetables from local farmers.
Here, simplicity tastes good, at a table in the sun on our spacious terrace.


Situated next to the restaurant is the Oliehuisje. This is where the cooling oil used to be stored for the many transformers in the building.
On the terrace of the Oliehuisje, you now enjoy a craftbeer, cocktail, wine, soft drinks, and in the weekend a pizza.


On the weekends you enjoy fresh baked pizza from our newly installed Italian wood oven at het oliehuisje.
