Pub crawl - Go out

Take off your watch and forget the time. Maybe you’ll linger all evening long in one pub in Leeuwarden, or maybe you’d like to go for a real pub crawl. Do you already have a favourite spot, or are you going to discover your new favourite pub?

Take your walkers out of the closet, because a pub crawl in Leeuwarden is not just limited to one street. Leeuwarden has different pedestrian areas, and each street has its own charm. The Doelensteeg is a household name and towers head and shoulders above the nightlife scene. When night falls, the music and voices rise above the alley. It sounds fun and it's alluring. Choose one or visit them all: the Doelenbar, Sybs, De Oude Stoep, Nachtwacht and/or the Kantelaar.

The Ruiterskwartier is located near the Doelensteeg. The Ruiterskwartier is characterized by diversity. You will find the shot bar Bebida's, sports café Scamele, music café Scooters, but also pop stage Neushoorn. There is something for everyone!

If you go to 'e struun (Liwadders for 'walking'), you might end up at De Toeter on Gouverneursplein, De Spoek on Sint Jacobsstraat or alternative rock café Mukkes. You no longer have an excuse to be bored. Walkers ready? Let's have fun!
