Converted cinema to a big café. Mainly safe on the tap beers and bottled beers are safe too. Some years ago they have more exciting special beers. But they have a good own commisioned beer.

Sort of old, small converted music hall sort of place. Doesn’t seem that appealling at first glance, but has a few interesting guest taps and a decent, if mainstream, bottle list.

Big place at de Grote Markt. It’s got a modern look combined with old-fashioned wooden seats. Bit poshy or touristy atmosphere at times I guess. Service was very friendly, dont know if they have any knowledge about the beers, because I was only looking at her lovely appearance. Some beers on tap, with some local stuff. Quite a lot of trappists from bottle. Decent selection. I was pleasantly surprised, as you wont expect this in such a large place on a popular venue.

A decent selection of beers including a few rotating taps. The bar looks like it could host some good musical acts. When I was there the clientele looked middle aged. Large and modern.

Was there on a great summer’s day. The patio is pretty much next to the church which is a great view.
Selection of beers is good too, about 5 or 6 seasonals and a good local link with jopen. Didn’t see too much of the inside but it looks fairly roomy.
On the market in Haarlem this is the best place to have a good beer.

Big spacious bar with a big number of beers on draft. The selection of beers on draft is changing during the seasons. Always two different local Jopenbeers on draft. Number of beers that are special have dropped since the change of the main beer suplier from Inbev into Heineken. The bottle selection has a lot of standard specialty beers and some real craft beers. small snacks available and lunch.

Large bar at the main square in Haarlem. Big patio upfront. Looks very spacious upon entering, stretched bar on the left, a small stage to the right, tables in a pit in the center. Tables disappear after dinnertime in weekends when the large crowd comes in. Lots of wood in the interior. Nice draught selection, always something from Haarlems Jopen. Staff is friendly, tries to know their beers. Food is mainly small snacks or tapas. Dont know if they actually serve dinner. In weekends they show the football games. Frequently live music.
