The Nieuwe of Littéraire Sociëteit De Witte ('De Witte'), founded in 1782, is a private club which has enjoyed a prominent position in The Hague’s social life for more than two centuries. 'De Witte' has been housed in a monumental building on the Plein, next to the famous Mauritshuis and the Binnenhof, since 25th October 1870. Club life predominantly takes place in our summer residence, Paviljoen De Witte in Scheveningen, during the summer months. The essence of this club life is still pretty much the same as it was back in 1782; i.e. 'socialising and respectable away-from-home activities'. The club’s more than 3,300 members are active in a variety of different ways, through tables, (sports) clubs and committees, which includes the organisation of various types of meetings; from lectures, drinks and dinners, to sports activities and trips abroad.
Following is a selection of some of the De Witte reviews.
'De Witte' has been housed in a monumental building on the Plein, next to the famous Mauritshuis and the Binnenhof, since 25th October 1870. The club is easily accessible both by car and public transport.
An incredibly pleasant stay in the beautiful Paviljoen rooms. Or, if the weather gods are on our side, a cup of coffee on Scheveningen’s most beautiful terrace.
De Witte is the perfect place for anyone looking for a job at The Hague's best catering company. We effectively combine two characteristic buildings, a professional team and kitchens where everything is still freshly produced, with good employment conditions, with De Witte often being closed on public holidays and weekends. It goes without saying De Witte has been awarded with the golden 'Green Key’ label (environmentally conscious entrepreneurship) as a socially responsible entrepreneur, plus students and work experience trainees are active in all our departments, which is made possible by the fact that De Witte has in-house teachers for front office, service and the kitchen.
The 'Witteblad' is published four times a year and is delivered to the homes of 3,200 members. Would you like to place an advertisement in our magazine? Then please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
