Tilburg is a city that encourages everyone to experiment
“Diggers has an enormous collection of second hand records. From Abba to Black Sabbath and from weird German 7” singles to Dutch pop from the 60’s, they literally have everything. This is a true paradise for vinyl collectors!”
“A beer shop with a mouthwateringly phenomenal assortment. It’s quite the experience to look for something special at De Bierbrigadier. Having trouble choosing? Owner Koen is happy to help! If you’re lucky, he might even let you take a sip from one of his special kegs.”
“This is without a doubt the most special chocolate shop in town. The owners are very young, which is cool and Friandries has a good vibe! The shop is most famous for their bizarre flavor combinations, such as apricot-basil and salted popcorn-peanut butter.”
“My favorite bar and the ultimate hangout during music festival Roadburn! The old and the young, students and pensionados, everyone gets together in this cosy pub with a ‘midget bar’, a small bar in a pit. Be sure to order a Schneider Weisse draft beer, it’s a classic.”
“When I’m hungover or looking for a place to have breakfast with my girlfriend, Koppig is my first pick. Their freshly baked waffles and pancakes are top notch. Don’t worry if you’re not a sweet tooth like me. They also have a delicious poached egg sandwich and fresh smoothies.”
“I’ve been living on the Korvelseweg for a long time and Berlijn Café has made this street even more diverse. I usually come here for an after work beer. Fun fact: they don’t have a paper menu. Instead they have a giant blackboard that they drag across their huge terrace.”
“The very best and most fun Surinam place in Tilburg, owned with love by a mother and her daughter. I get takeaway here quite a lot and always have a chat with the ladies while I’m waiting for my rotiroll and pom sandwich. Be sure to check out the entire menu, everything’s tasty!”
“Hall of Fame holds a special place in my heart. It’s one of the most important places in Tilburg where young makers are encouraged to experiment and be creative. Whether it’s rehearsing or performing with your band, taking skateboard lessons at Ladybird Skatepark or dancing.”
“I’m not a big fan of theatre. But I do visit De Nieuwe Vorst theatre thanks to Krakers! It’s a young, creative collective that organizes non-theatre stuff in every nook and cranny of the building. Art festivals, obscure movie nights and Pecha Kucha’s for example.”
“This is the hotspot for metalheads and the heavy underground scene of Tilburg. Little Devil has a beer menu night on Tuesdays, and I also come here for amazing live shows by heavy bands you won’t see at 013 Poppodium, Hall of Fame or Cul de Sac.”
