METCHAHotSpot: Radio Royaal at Eindhoven's Strijp-S area
An open kitchen at the restaurant entrance says Welkom to this quite exquisite place. It's an ol' power plant that used to provide Philips w/ energy to run their factories at Eindhoven's Strijp-S area (aka The Forbidden City) and it got amazingly transformed into Radio Royaal.
Just a gorg 14,000 square-foot eatery keeping the spirit of an era alive.
This place is in the middle of Eindhoven history, and it says a lot 'bout it too. The huge building is pretty much left as it was — only a few steps into the B&W checkered floor n u can see it by urself. The very same walls haven't been repainted; the industrial machinery is kept in its space. It is surrounded by exposed metal beams, cathedral ceilings n other industrial stuff.
Make urself at home in the 1950s school lunch tables, w/ vintage leather seats. The beautifully-mismatched furniture placed alongside old machinery gives Radio Royaal an edgy n rough lewk that we just love.
It started out as a concept space from Dutch Design Week 2011, like a pop up restaurant that nobody dared to say bubye. So now they are at full operation, w/ open doors every day for both lunch and dinner. 🤤
So after we feast our eyes, it's time for the munchies. 👅 Radio Royaal serves refined German n French food for hungry visitors, and the menu can change according to what season it is or even the weather.
A def can't miss if u'r in the mood for food or for an ⚙️ industrial inspo.
