This stylish bar is the place to have a coffee in the morning or a fabulous afternoon cocktail; Conto Bar. The bar is located on a nice little square, Voltaplatz, were the cool green Basel trams pass by every few minutes. The interior is amazing. Conto bar is located in an old banking hall. All the details of this bank hall are still visible; the thick bullet proof glass and when you go down to the toilet your standing in an old safe with a massive bullet proof door.
Three weeks ago my boyfriend and I went on a spontaneous trip to Basel, Switzerland. We booked our flight on Wednesday evening and left the next day! We didn’t really had time to plan anything. But luckily, we have some great friends there who could show us around. The best place they showed us was this little café hidden at the waterside; Rostiger Anker. It is one of the most chilled out places I have seen lately.
I love to hang around in the Museumpark in Rotterdam. They just rebuild the whole area. It is a green, quite place now where you can hang around, lay in the grass, or sit on the nice terraces of the Kunsthal and NAi. On the Museum square there are organized a lot of cool things, especially in summer; pleinbioscoop (open air movies), SWAN Market, Parade.
Normally at train stations the only place you can get a decent coffee is at Starbucks. Not that Starbucks is not good, but I prefer different, more exclusive coffee places. And that’s why you should get your coffee in Rotterdam central station (or most other central stations in Holland; Leiden, Den Haag, Amsterdam) at Lebkov & Sons!
One of the things I love about living in the coolest street in Rotterdam, Witte de Withstraat, is that I never have to leave my street. I can get my morning coffee @ Hopper, breakfast @ de Bakkerswinkel, clothes @ Margreet Olsthoorn, sneakers @ Seventyfive, and drinks @ NRC. And I get my lunch @ The Bagel Bakery!!
