Lab-44, the place where (almost) everything is possible!

You are welcome to stay with us all day to eat, drink and enjoy yourself. But also [host] your meetings, parties and more! In the summer you can spend some time on our terrace, with a great and relaxed atmosphere, you’d never want to leave. In winter it might be a bit adventurous to come to us, when it is dark and bleak outside, but then our restaurant is so cozy.

This is the place to be

The unique building asked for a unique interpretation, and we certainly succeeded.

The name, Lab-44, refers to the original function and address (Middenweg 44). The vibe here is unique. We are located in one of the most striking buildings on the Hembrug grounds, both in terms of style and history: our building actually served as a laboratory for the former weapons and ammunition factory, which was located on the grounds. 

This is the place where everyone feels at home. You are welcome for a cup of coffee, a meeting, lunch, drinks, dinner or party. Or take a seat in our Flextank, a nice place to work if you want to work outside the office, are on the road, or are waiting for an appointment. 

We regularly organise workshops and children are also welcome, for example for a DJ Workshop, pumpkin carving, or a fun King's Day with bouncy castle and games.

We make something special out of every day and offer lots of possibilities, starting with delicious food and drinks.
