Why locals love it
On just a five minute walk from the central station you can find Hanneke's Boom. This bar/restaurant is built and decorated with second hand items and looks a bit like a beach bar, so nothing fancy. But that is what makes it so special. Very popular among young professionals. In the summertime the place is packed with locals who come by boat.
Why you should visit it
Hanneke's Boom has a great view on the centre from a unique side. If you want to get in touch with locals in their 20's and 30's, this is your place. Good prices and okay food for lunch and dinner. Service isn't the greatest, but the variety of events compensate. Vinyl evenings, Jazz & Blues, DJ's, 60's & 70's and lately even a curling event.
This place is at its best during summer because of the big part outside.
