Drinks & Nightlife
One of the greatest places to sit outside for a (local) craft beer, some delicious (vegetarian) snacks. And if the weather makes sitting outside less tempting, the inside is also very inspiring. Café de Ceuvel is part of De Ceuvel, a former shipyard transformed into a sustainable and creative workplace, by lifting old houseboats onto the land, and equipping them with sustainable technologies such as composting toilets, heat exchangers, solar panels and helophyte filters.

Conceptual club. Every 365 days of the year it has a different owner. The owner of the day decides what kind of club they want it to be, which can vary from art exhibitions to sporting events, from gangster rap nights to dinners in stroboscopic light.
