Grand Opening Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam

7

Oh yeah baby, this is the moment you and we all have been waiting for. Excitement all over the place. Rampapam....the Grand Opening party of the Lomography Gallery Store in Amsterdam! Read on to find out all the details, party facts and most important - make sure you'll be there!

Yes, it was a challenge. A big challenge to find the perfect spot and the perfect building for the very first Lomography Gallery Store in the Netherlands. We all knew there is one neighborhood in Amsterdam where we want open this store – the nine streets along the western canal belt and in the heart of the urban culture centre of Amsterdam. And lucky lomo people we are, we managed to find this amazing place right on the corner of the Wolvenstraat and the Herengracht. An authentic canal house measuring 200 square meters spread out over 4 floors – the building of the Lomography Gallery Store in Amsterdam is unique. The Lomography Gallery Store offers, beneath the lomographic product range on the ground and first floor, special lomographic services on the upper levels. Exhibitions, product launches, parties and workshops will make sure that there is always something going on in the Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam. For more information about future activities and workshops, have a look at– www.lomography.nl/magazine/events

After weeks of construction work and preparation it’s about time to get rid of the wrapping paper on the windows and open the doors of our pride! Of course we want to make this a very special event like any other Lomography Gallery Store Opening we had in the past. So here we go – the party details:

GRAND OPENING SEPTEMBER 13TH
Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam, Herengracht 298, 1016 BX Amsterdam

The party is ON from 8pm and will be over around midnight. Join us and have a look around in the entire building, drink local brewed beers, ice cold Russian vodka, meet the lovely staff and our very special and exclusive Dutch celebrity ‘from the past’, enjoy a true analogue performance by gypsy band Flageolet and move your feet on funky beats by DJ’s Mr. Zoe, Taco Fett & Heinisfein.

RSVP TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS AND YOUR NAME WILL BE ADDED TO THE GUEST LIST:
store.amsterdam@lomography.com
There will be no reply to your email.

From Wednesday September 14th the regular opening hours of the store will be:

  • Su-Mo 12am-6pm
  • Tu-We 10am-6pm
  • Th 10am-9pm
  • Fr-Sa 10am-6pm

We’ve written a few blogposts about the set up period, with pictures of the building, our lazy painters ;) and other fabulous details of this amazing building. Have you missed them? Go check it out over here!
