Boom Chicago
  • Rozengracht 117, NL-1016 LV Amsterdam, Netherlands

Boom Chicago's beautiful theater on the Rozengracht is one of Amsterdam's most special locations. The hundred-year-old, former cinema in the heart of the Jordaan used to accommodate about a thousand film fans.

Today, the huge building has been renovated into a modern, flexible venue with a large theater hall for 330 visitors and a small hall with bar for around 110 guests.

In the historic building with the original stained glass windows on the Rozengracht you will also find a number of break-out areas, offices, studios and the popular Bar 117.

Boom Chicago's performances can be seen almost every night, but the venue is also available for private events during the day and evenings. If a show is scheduled in the evening, it is often possible to buy it out.

Our clients are full of praise for us. The following are always highlighted:

  • Our can-do   institution,   a refreshing counterpart to the more common 'that's not possible' mentality at traditional locations. We enjoy working together and can take care of everything from catering and supplying a chairman or Master of Ceremony to tailor-made sketches and video, invitations or parking spaces.
  • We don't charge for every small request. Of course special wishes cost money, but the basis of technical facilities, light, beamers, screens, good WiFi capacity and other things that are present are included in the rent.  
  • Our flexible multi-room building is suitable for various events from conferences to awards shows to receptions and kick-off meetings. There is also a large area behind the stage with dressing rooms with showers, a kitchen and lounge on the ground floor. There are also two higher dressing rooms with shower.
  • Our extensive creative team of actors, writers, directors, hosts and moderators can be used in many ways, from writing and performing custom sketches to funny interludes or hosting a meeting. With humor they contribute to a great and positive atmosphere that also contributes well to conveying the messages or themes of the event.  
  • It is easy to give the theater its own character with few resources . All furniture can be removed so that furniture can be hired that may better suit the meeting.   There are also three large screens in the room for your own images and logos. You can easily hang banners on the 10-meter-high side walls from the catwalk above the hall.    There is enough space for larger objects in the room or work with our colored theater lights to create the right atmosphere. Bar 117 also has 7 steel A0 frames for posters and a white wall on which to project.  
  • Our professional AV set up.   A complete lighting plan, screens, beamers, sound and microphones and our own experienced technicians mean that you do not have to enter anything extra if it is a regular event. If you do have a special technical wish, we would like to contact our connections to fill it in.
  • We are not tied to a regular caterer . We do have a large network of progressive and high-quality catering companies with whom we like to work, making it easy for us to give the right interpretation to an event in terms of style and budget. We can also book lunch and dinner at restaurants within walking distance of our location.


  • Parking is easy.   Unfortunately not free, but Europarking around the corner has room for 700 cars. Of course we can provide exit tickets.
  • Public transport options are excellent.   There are direct trams and buses from Central Station, Schiphol, € 1 PR places and all neighborhoods in Amsterdam.
  • Tour buses can leave guests right outside the door.
  • Our theater is also easily accessible by tour boat and bicycle.

Number of persons:

  • 330 seated guests in the large theater hall with high ceiling including balcony.
  • 250 people in the foyer, spread over three levels with the original stained glass windows from 1913 on the front.
  • 110 seated guests in the 'Upstairs Theater' for meetings, workshops, private dinners and shows. There is a small bar in the room.  


  • The top-level WiFi can handle the capacity of various productions.   Everyone can log in at the same time with private and good speed. With internet service from two providers, an unexpected malfunction also does not pose a problem for the progress of the event.

Environment: The beautiful Amsterdam Jordaan with the Westerkerk and the Anne Frank House within walking distance of the theater.
