It all started about 50 years ago. At the current location of De Heeren, a wine cellar opened its doors. Under the supervision of the manager of Zuikertuin Mall, Toffie Hofland, exclusive wines were sold. Five years later, the wine bottles were taken out of the cellar to make room for a real old-fashioned disco night club. After all, it was the 70’s: the disco era.
Years flew by while many people enjoyed their nights dancing to all the famous disco hits. This came to an end in 1995 when Sebastian established a butcher shop in the building. The most delicious meats and cheeses were sold here. Later on, the fish palace of Diana Mooiman was added to the butcher shop. Real fish lovers enjoyed their portion of fried cod every week.
After months of hard work, the former fish palace & butcher shop were transformed into a Grand Café. This became the foundation of what De Heeren is today. The years flew by: friends were made, love arose and new generations found their way. For everyone, visiting De Heeren always feels like coming home.
Eventually, in 2018, De Heeren decided it was time to evolve. However, tracks of the past would not be erased. Memories would be cherished and the feeling of coming home would only get a new dimension. The nostalgia would be preserved: that was the promise. With this purpose, De Heeren opened its ‘new’ doors in April 2018. With a playful twist and plenty of new elements to discover, we would like to welcome you again soon in our living room.
