What are you paying for when you eat out in a restaurant? Food, yes. Drink, yes. Service, of course. But what is sometimes forgotten is the entire ambience of a place…
Rotterdam’s Harbour Club ticks all the boxes in that sense. The menu is, of course, of the highest quality, offering a delicious seasonal menu that is kept as fresh as the ingredients that make it – Chef van Wilgenburg wouldn’t have it any other way. But also, the interior of this place is a sight to behold.
Designed by Selwyn Senatori, a talented artist and designer, Harbour Club has a vibe that is fitting of such an iconic and trendy location in the former ‘Parkzicht’: an almost hundred-year-old villa in one of the city parks of Rotterdam near the Euromast. His sketches, depicting the colourful characters you may expect to find dining amongst them, decorate the old walls of Harbour Club and may it a truly captivating place to eat, meet and socialise.
Senatori’s motto in his work is that ‘it’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle,’ and that is something that resonates with Harbour Club. The team there has passion in what they do. They want to make their restaurant the exciting experience that it is. And, whilst the staff there arrive through the place’s beautiful doors for ‘work,’ the love they have for the culinary world means it is more of a lifestyle than an occupation – just like the work of the man who decorated the restaurant.
To make a reservation at Harbour Club, just take a visit to their website and you’ll be dining in this illustrious institution in no time.
