This place is quite special. It's a bar with good food and beverages and great views into the Utrecht canals, but their existence is not solely for that. They save up with every drink you order, to ensure a musical intermezzo on Thursdays and Sundays. We encountered a Thursday session, which changes the atmosphere quite a bit from a cafe/restaurant into a small music hall. Worth visiting when near!
Nice concept for a restaurant, near the water, open kitchen, menu is average but they have good wines. Live music on Thursday with students from the conservatory. They have a special agenda for the regular concerts.
Possibly the most chill spot in Utrecht: 1. Staff are awesome - I forgot the Dutch don't use MasterCard much and had run out of cash so couldn't pay, barman's response... "Ah don't worry about it, you can come back and pay us another day, I trust you" 2. Great coffee/beer/food 3. Constant classics playing through their old school speakers next to the cool retro furniture 4. Perfect view of the canal
