Life doesn’t become more social than through sharing food. That’s our founding food philosophy and it can be yours too.
The food that comes out of the Living Kitchen is fresh, simple, honest, healthy and local. With short-end preparation times, simple ingredients and limited preparation steps, our assortment is incredibly intelligent and facilitates fast service.
Reflecting the belief that we are what we eat, our kitchen aims to physically energize, appeal to the senses and nourish the soul. Our food is prepared in an open kitchen and served on long communal tables – ideal for salt passing and idea swapping.

You run the kitchen by yourself during your shift, and ensure that any food that comes out of the Living Kitchen is cooked well and presented in a beautiful way and following our food philosophy. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner - the kitchen is your playground.
You will work closely together with the Head Chef and other Chefs to develop menu offerings and forecast supply needs. You will also ensure that the Living Kitchen meets all local regulations, including HACCP and safety guidelines.
You will plate beautiful dishes and make creative buffets, which do not only look good, but also taste amazing. This includes making sure the kitchen looks amazing too (think Ottolenghi). You can also swing by our rooftop garden for a fresh herb or garnish whenever you want to!
You'll chat with an international mix of residents and locals. As you are cooking in an open kitchen, you will get to know and chat with guests while cooking up a storm. You'll be sure to meet some interesting people along the way!
If you haven’t met us before, we’re Zoku. A home base for holiday and business travelers who want to live and work in a city anywhere from a few days to a few months. We’re a home-office hybrid with hotel services, which offer a relaxed place to live, work and socialize with like-minded people while getting wired into the city.
Some things we’re proud of…
The lively Living Kitchen is located on the rooftop of Zoku Amsterdam, in the Weesperstraat. This means you have the opportunity to cook for a mix of international residents and local visitors – all while overlooking an amazing view of the city and having access to a rooftop garden.
A place you can call a second home, even on your first visit.
So much more than a long stay hotel. It’s a neighborhood.
Where the neighbors borrow more than a cup of sugar.
They share ideas and ambitions.
They mix the local lowdown with the global highlights.
Where the word on the street keeps you streets ahead.
For this is a ‘good company’ company where everyone can bring their dreams to the table.
Where those busy connecting the world can catch up with each other and the scene surrounding them.
Smart and uncompromising, Zoku is a hive of smart lofts and friendly spaces, designed so you can stay connected, well rested and throw yourself into your work, your play and our city.
This is a place that is furnished to fit, not to split.
Encouraging each other to live, not exist.
To dream, not sleep.
To smarten up, rather than dumb down.
To go at it together, rather than alone.
Together we can work hard, play strong and rest easy.
Whilst we blur borders, combine cultures and live our dreams.
