This cosy cafe/restaurant is situated on Oudegracht and used to be well-known as a popular student haunt. Since 1981, gigs have been held there regularly. Many big-name musicians have spent time here – playing, listening, drinking and eating. The tables at which they spent these evenings now bear their names.

If you want to enjoy some live music with a drink or a bite to eat, be sure to descend into this atmospheric basement, where you will find a small stage in the back. Even after all these years, there is still a live act on the bill virtually every day. The international menu offers a wide selection of dishes, including plenty of vegetarian options. Many locals will vouch for the sumptuous cheese fondue!
