It is cosmopolitan, sophisticated and situated in a building designed by the beloved Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas. Hofhouse is unlike any other food court you have seen before.
Close to the bustling city life and next to central station of The Hague, guests will find mouth-watering dishes in a fun and relaxed atmosphere at food court Hofhouse. Run by passionate craftsmen, Hofhouse is the perfect spot at which to start any trip to the city. “We offer our guests a place where they can unwind, but also find new energy for the rest of the day,” Maurits van den Bosch, marketing-director of Hofhouse explains.
Designed by the well-known Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, the food court combines architectural elegance with a cosy atmosphere. With eight different food corners and one cosmopolitan bar, which serves delicious cocktails as well as beers and wines, it is a great spot for business lunches, afternoon drinks or dinners for large groups, but is also appropriate for intimate settings. Van den Bosch: “In a welcoming atmosphere, guests can choose from a great variety of food.”
Here, you can enjoy the best quality food options during the day. In the morning, there are delicious croissants and coffee as well as yoghurt and granola at Toastable. Lunch includes classics such as caesar and niçoise salads, as well as hot and healthy soups. Madame Goa is known for a great selection of sushi and Hawaiian and Asian poke bowls. There are also 100 per cent pure and homemade burgers at Burgerz, great tacos with a shot of tequila at Mad Mex, as well as unique Kenyan delicacies with delicious hot spices, and Italian antipasti at Joey’s or tasty skewers at Noomi’s.
Hofhouse is also known for its lively calendar. Throughout the year, there is a lot of entertainment on offer, such as groovy jam sessions, and a DJ plays great tunes every Friday. This is most certainly the perfect place to relax and unwind during your stay in The Hague.
