    They have a delicious berry jenever which is good if you don't normally like jenever. Pay with pin and they need to take out an additional €20 (which you get back in cash).

    This place has some of the cheapest drinks in town, and the crowd is chatty and outgoing. The best spot to kick back is outside on the terrace. Read more
