4) Hutspot

Hutspot is a shop, gallery, work space and cafe in one. The three young owners created a platform for new talent and are constantly searching for interesting designers and artists, who exhibit their products in a shop within the shop. After opening their instantly successful store in Van Woustraat in 2012, Hutspot opened another location in Rozengracht.
