Het Ketelhuis is located in the former ‘Forbidden City of Philips’, in the middle of Strijp S. Purpose-built in 1929 to generate compressed air and electricity for the industrial area, the supplier of energy for the surrounding factories. Seven years ago we gave this monumental building a new function. We started a restaurant and soon expanded with a bakery, a bar and a second restaurant, wedding- and event location on the upper floor. Downstairs we serve dinner in three or four courses.

Our chefs put love and attention into their work, using ingre-dients that we find close to home. Our cows don’t fly.
The bread comes from our own bakery, honey from the bee colony on the rooftop, the herbs from our own rooftop garden. We work with whole animals.

We cook using fresh products, our menu changes weekly. Here, simplicity tastes good.

And, there is more to Het Ketelhuis!

Boiler Room / Bovenruimte

The Boiler Room (or Bovenruimte) is the second floor restaurant where we cook
on open fire. 
We use this space to host cultural events such as the Boiler Room Comedy Club, Boiler Room Jazz Club, Moulin Rough Dragshow and dance parties, but also
our own wine- and beerdinners.

More than anything, this location is popular for weddings.
Since 2020 we are an official wedding location for the City of Eindhoven.
We are always happy to talk about wedding wishes and possibilities.
Check Wedding.

This space is also available for seminars, private dining,
company- school- and private parties, and other private events.
You’re even welcome for your divorce party.
Check Private Rent.




When the sun is shining this is the perfect place to visit with friends or family. Take a seat on one of the largest and most “gezellige” terraces in town and enjoy a drink, your weekend and each other. In the pizza container, fresh made pizzas are baked all weekend long. We also serve nachos, and a little thing we like to call the “borrelplank” (filled with our homemade charcutterie, veggies and cheeses).  All self-service, all good.

At het Oliehuisje, you’ll find a convincing selection of cocktails, natural wines and craft beers, both local and international, served all day long.

During the lockdown het Oliehuisje is open for takeaway coffees and lunch.

Summer is here

Come spring, we’ll be open again! Your holiday destination this year? The one and only Ketelhuis!
Our restaurant kitchen is fully open all day, so you can reserve a table every Wednesday to Sunday and order from our full menu from 12:00 to 22:00. Our wine menu is worth a visit by itself.

At the Oliehuisje (lunch café in the afternoon, cocktail bar in the evening) just find a spot on our spacious terrace and hang out all evening! We offer a quirky selection of cocktails, craft beers, natural wines, kombuchas, coffees, highballs, sodas and juices. And if not, our cocktail boards, nachos and freshly baked pizzas will take care of it. We will also regularly light the barbeque. Sometimes out of nowhere a band will play on the vintage flatbed truck.

So, this summer,  you’ll celebrate the holiday with friends, loved one, family or neighbours at the Ketelhuis!
