About Restaurant LIER

You can find Restaurant LIER on the first floor of the Pleinfoyer, above the main entrance of the Concertgebouw. This is a place where the past and present meet in different ways: from the architecture to the interior design, and from traditional hospitality to signature culinary dishes.

The name of the restaurant refers to the musical instrument in the Concertgebouw's logo: the lyre, which is 'lier' in Dutch. In Ancient Greece this instrument accompanied poets (hence the word 'lyrical') and later in history became a symbol for music in general.

Ever since the opening of the Concertgebouw in 1888, the lyre adorns the roof of the Main Hall. The 'Concertgebouw Picture Book' published for donors in 1964, contains an ode to the lyre: 'The lyre on the roof: a musical beacon in the beloved cityscape. (...) Under this roof, people create beauty in sounds to be enjoyed by other people.' Now, it's impossible to imagine the roof of the Concertgebouw without the golden lyre.
