5x hotspots in Rotterdam

Today Rotterdam turns orange with a touch of green-white-green. Extra big party, because the royal family will make an appearance here. If you are considering attending the visit, these five places in the Maasstad may convince you.

New Rotterdam Café

Nieuw Rotterdams Café, or popularly known as NRC, is a household name in the popular Witte de Withstraat. At NRC you can eat burgers, vegan, small bites, sushi, various tasting boards, dinners or good salads. The cake display is famous, just like the wine list and cocktails. Would you like to extend the evening a little longer? after dinner the dance floor is open. This way you can enjoy funky, soul and Latin music.


At Kruisplein in the heart of Rotterdam you can enjoy cocktails and dishes from all corners of the world. Enjoy the smell of an Italian trattoria, the colors of a Greek taverna, the flavors of a North African bazaar, the hot spiciness of a Thai night market and the hectic bustle of a Spanish mercado. Don't forget to taste one of the signature cocktails here, in addition to the timeless classics, Ayla has made a number of cocktails herself and distilled drinks that, according to her, go perfectly with the dishes on the menu.

YOLO Restaurant-Bar

YOLO on Admiraliteitskade serves lunch and dinner, but let's be honest: you mainly come here to enjoy the drinks and cocktails. Upon entering you immediately stand in front of a bar with more than 200 exclusive drinks. From a Japanese single malt to a Robert Mondavi fumé blanc. Should the sun show itself; The terrace overlooking the harbor is a very pleasant place to be.

Bar Restaurant Beautiful

In any case, the view is spectacular; right on the water and right next to the Maas in Rotterdam. You can go there for sushi and cocktails, but also for small dishes or a three-course menu with a good bottle of wine on the side.
