The friendly cafe-cum-theatre De Bastaard has been a fixture of Utrecht’s nightlife for years now. The cafe was originally established according to the credo ‘just act normal, that’s crazy enough’ that originates from the Twente region of the Netherlands, and has been run by the same owners since 1984.

De Bastaard is a great place to have a beer or play a game of pool, and every once in a while the cafe is transformed into a charming little theatre where shows are staged. According to the owners, only acts that are truly fun and really good get the chance to go up on the De Bastaard stage – if they cannot offer a quality show, they prefer to leave the programme blank.
