Where can you start your weekend with dangerous cocktails, fight your hangover with ‘Eggs in Hell’ and where can you satisfy a hardcore childhood craving? These are my 9 weekend tips for Rotterdam!
Café Roes / Weekend tips for Rotterdam
1. Café Roes
Special cocktails & finger-lickin’ good Asian street food. My favorites: the gyozas, the naanbread with dips, the tasty bao buns and the perfect Pornstar Martini! I loved the Lychee Lemon cocktail too. There are exhibitions on a regular basis and DJs like to come and visit… Funky & cosy hotspot!
Schiedamse Vest 144
2. Baker’s Dough
When I was little I loved eating all the cookie dough leftovers when we were baking cookies. In this shop you can buy a scoop of cookie dough in multiple different flavours and add yoghurt ice cream for example! OMG! Add a topping like ‘salted fudge’… This cookie dough bar is extremely dangerous. Enter at your own risk…

Nachos, hamburgers, specialty beers, barbecues and a Berlin vibe are what this outdoor bar is all about. A great place to start your evening! Check the website for the program.

Heaven for chocolate lovers! The chocolate fondue is a highlight, but they also serve a delicious high tea and a lot of flavours of HotChocSpoons. How about a Sparkling Champagne HotChocSpoon? What better way to get through these cold autumn days…
