Engels, the legendary grand café, restaurant and meeting center in the iconic Groothandelsgebouw in Rotterdam, was a place where many parties and special moments were celebrated. As the Rotterdam Balloon Company we had the pleasure of regularly providing balloons for birthdays and other festivities that took place at Engels. Although Engels is unfortunately permanently closed due to the corona crisis, we would like to look back on the rich history and festive occasions that took place here.

Engels was founded in 1884 by C. Engels and was originally located on 1e Middellandstraat in Rotterdam. Before the bombing of Rotterdam, there were several Engels cafés and restaurants in the city, including the famous café-restaurant Le Commerce. In 1952, while the Groothandelsgebouw was still under construction, Engels' renovated grand café-restaurant and meeting center opened near what would later become Rotterdam Central Station.

English quickly became a household name in Rotterdam and far beyond. It was a place where people came together to enjoy delicious dishes, a cozy atmosphere and of course the beautiful view of the city. When the Groothandelsgebouw was completed, the roof pavilion was opened in 1953 by Queen Juliana.

In 1988, Engels received the prestigious title of "purveyor to the court," in recognition of the quality and hospitality the business offered. For 68 years, Engels was an important part of the Rotterdam catering scene and a popular location for parties and events.

As the Rotterdam Balloon Company, we were able to contribute to the cheerful and festive atmosphere at Engels by providing colorful balloons for birthdays and other celebrations. Although Engels has now unfortunately closed its doors, the memories of the special moments and warm hospitality offered here continue to live on in the hearts of those who had the opportunity to celebrate here.
