I had to think about my dad who used to smoke Caballero cigarettes and the small brown package with wood print and cowboy on it when visiting Mama Kelly this last summer. I was asked by Bolia to write some blogposts about The Hague, like I did for Amsterdam, when Bolia opened the new store last year. With a changing format the posts have disappeared from their website but I still have the pictures and thought they were to nice not to show.
Mama Kelly is a restaurant in the former caballero cigarettes factory, although I am a a bit finished with the hipster brick walls I still love the real industrial thing! Restaurant Mama Kelly is definitely the real thing with huge walls and industrial windows letting in lots of light. Tables with white linen, black chairs and accent walls with copper tiles. At the entrance a bar covered in copper and comfertable benches and a sunny terrace for Summer.
Mama Kelly, named after Status Quo-album ‘Ma Kelly’s Greasy Spoon! is open from morning till midnight, find them at Saturnusstraat 100, The Hague website: Mama Kelly
