The Soda Pop Shop serves sodas, infused drinks and cocktails, taking its cue from the American soda fountains of the 1930s. Our palette ranges from the well-known classics to the curiously experimental. When bars closed their doors in the days of Prohibition, soda shops became a cornerstone of social activity, elevating non-alcoholic beverages to a high art form, providing a wonderland of flavors for adults and kids alike. This experimentation laid the groundwork for a whole new range of cocktails when Prohibition ended.
We handcraft and preserve our unique flavors in our external kitchen to guarantee high quality, consistent products. Secure in the knowledge that we are pouring a streamlined drink every time, we make hospitality and presentation our main focus at the bar, giving all our attention to the details required to create the perfect serve. The nerdy historical approach is mostly behind-the-scenes; the experience at the bar should be one of simple joy: happiness in a glass with a twist.
This is an ongoing project; the flavors will be rotated and will continue to evolve over time. We plan to organize workshops and events, inviting chefs and bartenders to inspire us with new creations and concoctions. All the magic takes place at the Fenix Food Factory, a collective of culinary entrepreneurs that has captivated the hearts of Rotterdammers with its offering of delicious, locally sourced and locally produced products.
