You know these dark hotel bars from nostalgic films, where a beautiful girl or guy spends the evening nursing a glass of whisky? Well, we now have one in Rotterdam, just without the hotel attached – and it’s not all that gloomy either. The stylish Café Rose Rouge in Rotterdam-Noord, styled on hotel bars, is an explosion of pink that is truly Instagram worthy. At the weekend, a young, hip crowd find their way to this bar to drink gin and tonics, cocktails, good wine and coffee.
Location: Benthuizerstraat 35B, Rotterdam-Noord
Opening hours: Tuesday to Thursday, 3pm-1am; Friday and Saturday, 3pm-2am; Sunday, 3pm-midnight.
