The classic Leiden beer bar has improved a little over the years with the addition now of a Maximus tap and other bottles beyond the obvious Belgian stuff. It’s a small and pretty dark place with a small (mostly smoking) outside are and some decent music playing. Certainly worth a quick visit when in Leiden.
Visited on Saturday 26/09/15 on the way back from BBF, having ticked everything we needed, we arrived around 4pm.
Small bar, lots of wood on offer, muzak themed pictures adorn the walls. Quiet atmosphere but a good hald dozen locals around the bar. Despite the large bottle count, we only picked up 3 or 4 ticks, largely tried and trusted Belgo offerings - a shame they didn’t stock some NL micro stuff. Lady behind the bar was friendly. Overall not worth the detour but the best of the 3 bars we visited in Leiden - 7 or 8 minutes walk from the station.
Tucked away in the older looking part of residential Leiden, this quaint woody bar has a good atmosphere and both locals and staff were friendly. A reasonable choice of beers provided us with a just 3 ticks. Nice rock star photos, including Lemmy natch! Liked this place but it’s only somewhere to go if you are in Leiden, not a Dutch destination of choice.
Nice small cosy bar, large bottle selection comprising the usual above average Belgians, good to see a few Dutch beers on also including De Molen, Texels, Jopen. Around 10 taps pouring a mixture of decent and not so decent ( Heineken) beers also. Friendly staff and probably the best place in Leiden. Around 10 mins from the station.
Visited on a Sunday evening, nice small beer cafe quite close to Leiden central station. Decen beer selection, the beer of the month was a Rogue beer on tap plus a nice selection of the classic bottles. Prices are quite decent as well, especially for stuff you’d expect to be expensive. Staff was friendly. Would return.
