Grounds is a very versatitle venue for concerts and parties with music from any direction the wind may blow. The main building dates from 1921 and was for years the office of the National Pilotage, (Loodswezen), yes, all things maritime again as we are in Rotterdam. But the room we'll be dancing in was built in 2005 against the outside walls of the Pilotage building. You'll see it's a quirky room with a nice bamboo floor.
