Need any tips? Brandweerkantine is great place in a converted firehouse, Tapijn is great for food & drinks in an old soldier’s barracks. The Jeker Quarter has a couple of places you have to visit: Café Sjiek is known all over the world and a popular location for the locals, Café Lure has a great terrace and some great food at student prices. Cafe Forum is an all round great place with live Jazz on Mondays and when at Café Tribunal try ‘Trudies teleur’ (dish of the day)!
The Vrijthof is lined with pubs and so is the Onze Lieve Vrouweplein (OLV) and the Market Square. Try a “pèlske” on one of the terraces and feel the difference in atmosphere!
Travel across the Sint Servaas bridge and in Wyck you find Harry’s, Bouchon d’en Face for a more upscale experience, Wycker Cabinet, Irish Pub and the Poshoorn with different atmospheres and Burgerlijk for great burgers!
