Pub quite close to central station. While the other pubs I visited on this Friday evening were almost without exception packed, this one had some empty seats. A bad sign? Hmm I beg to differ. The selection is quite decent for just a random small pub. Quite some Dutch beers, ranging from a small Amsterdam brewery to the well known beers from Emelisse (and not the worst: a DIPA and RIS). Though I have no expertise on strong liquor, they seemed to have a decent range of whisky’s and other liquors as well. I’d say it’s worth a visit when you’re in the area.

Nice bar with a selection that has too many boring macros, but enough interesting beers as well. However, there are better places in the area, the Zeedijk is still one of the bestpub streets in the city, despite the occassional tourist traps.
