The word ‘Bajes’ has come to mean ‘prison’ in Dutch slang, but the original Yiddish meaning is actually ‘home’. This particular home has a hugely impressive collection of art. Artists such as Ben Eine, Fanakapan, D*Face, The London Police, Hugo Kaagman, Bortusk Leer, Ox Alien, Juane, Laser 3.14, Soren Solkaer and Cranio were commissioned to work their magic on the walls in De Bajes. Each and every one of these familiar and well-loved names at international art galleries and on the streets.
Weekdays De Bajes is opened for drinks and diner. During the weekend De Bajes hosts the very best Amsterdam DJ’s and party's which will have you begging for a life long in this prison.
