Witte de Withkwartier

Witte de Withkwartier

The Witte de Withkwartier is the beating heart of Rotterdam's art scene and is known for its vibrant nightlife.

What is there to do?

Go look at art at TENT or Kunstinstituut Melly , visit a performance at Theater Witte de With or immerse yourself in WORM's avant-garde film and music programming. During the day the galleries, cultural institutions and fashion shops are open, in the evening the attention shifts to the catering industry. Grand café NRC (Nieuw Rotterdams Café) is a good place to start the evening with a plate of spaghetti or fish 'n chips. If you fancy a juicy hamburger, visit Ter Marsch & Co. The most famous bar on the street is De Witte Aap, which has been an institution for many years and was even named the best bar in the world by Lonely Planet. Newer bars such as Ballroom and café LaBru are popular with the young, hip crowd. The gin and tonics sell like hot cakes on the carefully designed counters. Want to meet local artists and writers? Then you have to go to De Schouw, a brown café that quickly becomes too small on a good evening.
