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.

" The place is very nice to spend a while over some beers and eventually something to eat; in case you're a smoker be sure to bring enough cigarettes for the evening or a Dutch ID; this evening I had to endure my last beer without smoking... Still 5 stars, for the moment ;)"

" Great place to hangout and have a couple of drinks in the evening. Especially nice during summer evenings when you can sit outside on the park benches."

" Nice place for drinks/borrel but came here for lunch for the first time. Was pleasantly surprised! The fries were honestly delicious. I think they're double fried :P I had a tuna melt which was a bit different than the typical traditional style but it was really tasty! Nice bread, fresh ingredients. My husband had the burger which was apparently also great! Good size, not too big and easy to eat. They also have a nice/unique selection of drinks. I'd recommend for lunch!"

" The staff are always great here. Very fast and always on the ball. The drink are good and the food is easy, affordable and tasty. The toilets do what they have to but could use a little freshen up. It's always busy in the evening and the summer and market days are packed!"
