Welcome to a hip cultural venue. Pakhuis de Zwijger is a former warehouse that has been refitted to house various media organisations. It also hosts a cutting-edge array of events, including readings, workshops and gatherings of the design, new media and creative industries; it's all about innovation. Particularly inspired are VJ visionaries Beamlab (www.beamlab.nl) and street fashion guerrillas Streetlab (www.streetlab.nl). There's also a great IJ-side café that is open weekdays from 9am to 11pm.
