Bokaal Rotterdam

Nieuwemarkt 11, 3011 HP Rotterdam


Beer Pub Bokaal Rotterdam

The name of this pub in Rotterdam might sound a bit rustic, but this bar has become one of the party hotsports in Rotterdam. Bokaal Rotterdam is located at Nieuwemarkt, in line with Pannekoekstraat, enclosed between the Blaak area and the Meent nightlife district. Bokaal Rotterdam offers a huge selection of beers, from the bottle, but also fresh from the tap. At Bokaal Rotterdam you can also have dinner or lunch. Make your choice from meat, fish or salads, but a cold beer combined with a platter of cold meats and/or cheese is their house specialty.

Bokaal Rotterdam Terrace

You'll find Bokaal Rotterdam at an intimate square, shared with the Barcelona tapas bar, the Sunset Café and cocktail bar Level Rotterdam. On a sunny day, Bokaal has an outdoor beer tap and there's a great and relaxing vibe at their large outdoor terrace in Rotterdam.

" Good beer selection and knowledgeable bartender. It was still lively for a Sunday late evening! And I think the kitchen was still open 10pm +"

" Quirky and cool place to grab a couple of beers, more so on a nice day when you can stand, or sit outside. This pub always seems to have a fair amount of patrons in and is probably one of the most popular pubs in Rotterdam."

" Nice place to grab a craft beer, a bite to eat and meet up with friends. It's situated close to Blaak station, the Markthal and other shops. They got a terrace outside so when the weather is nice you can enjoy your drink and food outside. Definitely recommend this place and the staff is very accommodating."

" Didn’t eat there so can’t comment on food. Solid bar, good beers w moderate range on tap and several more bottle options, fair price. Attentive service. Inside got pretty crowded with limited standing space. Heaters outside; can’t wait for the sun to come out to hang in the large patio area."
