Sint-Olofskapel transforms into Saint Soif
The well-known Amsterdam based restaurant De Kas and 5-star hotel NH Collection Barbizon Palace are joining forces for a pop-up in the historic Sint-Olofskapel.
From January 4 up until 22, you can enjoy a glass of wine, casual service and good food in the oldest chapel in the Netherlands at the head of the Zeedijk. Chef Jos Timmer of Michelin star restaurant De Kas: “For a while it looked like the pots and pans would remain untouched for a month. After all, our kitchen is being remodeled, but of course we wanted to continue cooking.” Starting January 4, the entire staff and all their belongings will move to NH Collection Barbizon Palace where the doors of the Saint Olof Chapel will be opened for pop-up wine bar Saint Soif. The patron saint of sailors makes way for Saint Soif which will be run under De Kas signature.

Until January 22, the 15th century chapel will be all about cider, wine, oysters and the tastiest vegetable dishes from the De Kas gardens in the Beemster and Amsterdam. The restaurant is a follow-up to previous successful pop-ups in the chapel of NH Collection Barbizon Palace. General Manager Ludo de Jong is already eagerly anticipating the restaurant: “Amsterdam’s oldest chapel lends itself perfectly as a backdrop to experience fine gastronomy. With the NH Collection brand we guarantee an excellent culinary experience, so we are proud that we can contribute to this with our location. With @Olof’s we regularly host unique pop-up concepts, with wonderful collaborations as a result.”
