Favourite authentic pubs in Holland

1) Café De Bel

The most convivial cafe in Rotterdam’s Oude Noorden neighbourhood is always full, regardless of which weekday you happen to stop by. The patrons in this local watering hole are young and old, the music loud, and the walls are covered with posters, paraphernalia and old guitars. Regular performances.
