Located in a dark basement, the Spijker might not be as inviting as other bars in town, but those who make the effort are in for a surprise. At the back side of the bar, below two TV screens showing uninspired gay porn, is a pool table. This is the real gem, because it’s an easy way of getting in contact with other patrons including, among others, some weirdos, some locals and loads of expats! Just write your name on the board and wait your turn. A small darkroom is available upstairs. And did we mention the gorgeous South-African bartender?
