A unique location with a rich history

Welcome to Kanteen25. Our spacious venue sits in building 025 on the Marineterrein in the center of Amsterdam. The Marineterrein and building 025 both have a rich history.

Marineterrein in the 60s

Building 025

In the early ’60s, building 025 became a meeting place for the different ranks of marine officers. Rank differences played a big role in the Marines, so the quarters were strictly separated. That’s why it was rather special that, at the time, building 025 opened up for the different ranks to socialize with one another. The bar on the ground floor received the nickname ‘All Ranks Bar’ and the building became known as ‘The Golden Ball’ by the end of the ’60s.

Marineterrein

Marineterrein

In 2011, the Ministry of Defence decided to vacate the Marine Etablissement Amsterdam. In 2015, the gradual redevelopment of the Marineterrein officially began. That’s when the Marineterrein became a green oasis and testing ground in the middle of Amsterdam: where solutions for international challenges are devised, tested and applied.
