The casual atmosphere of this old pub on the Nieuwmarkt is even greater when the sun comes out in the spring. While other neighbouring bars set up tables next door, Café Friendship just leaves dozens of chairs outside facing the sun and a few small stools to use as tables for drinks. Although a faded red Heineken sign hangs from its façade, it also serves plenty of other brews on draught or in bottles. Buy your drinks at the bar and then move out onto the terrace. You can also order pitchers of good beer for about €15.
