Dinner @ Calypso Eindhoven
Dinner @ Calypso Eindhoven

Dinner @ Calypso Eindhoven Start your night at one of Eindhoven’s most laid-back restaurants… Bar Bistro Calypso. What may sound like a guilty pleasure from the 1980’s or a bumpy ride at the local fair, is actually a great restaurant/bar/coffee-hangout. Using a little bit of self-mockery, this name for sure rings a bell for the […]

Drinks @ Berlin Bar Eindhoven
Drinks @ Berlin Bar Eindhoven

Drinks @ Berlin Bar Eindhoven One of the few ‘what you see is what you get’- bars on the Kleine Berg is Berlin Bar 5611. The name Berlin Bar makes sense. When you walk in you feel the vibe and look-and-feel that is typical for Berlin-type bars. Berlin Bar is a very pure place… good music […]

Vershal het Veem @ Strijp-S Eindhoven

Vershal het Veem @ Strijp s Eindhoven You wouldn’t expect this kind of place at Strijp S, this is more the kind of indoor market you would find in Madrid, with all kinds of different good foods on offer. When you’re at Strijp S, just be curious and have a peek here. You can buy […]

Coffee @ Lucifer Coffee Eindhoven
Coffee @ Lucifer Coffee Eindhoven

Coffee @ Lucifer Coffee Eindhoven The Kleine Berg in Eindhoven has recently been surprised by a newborn… Lucifer Coffee. I wonder where it got its name from, maybe because it’s a little cheeky or because of the darkness in the Coffee-roast. The name of Lucifer Coffee however is derived from the slightly unknown matchstick past […]

Dinner @ De Burger Eindhoven
Dinner @ De Burger Eindhoven

Dinner @ De Burger Eindhoven The coolness of the restaurant is what surprised me the most. And the variety of the menu, although the main stream is Burgers. Burger Eindhoven with a Capital B, yes! That’s because you can forget Mc Donald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, and all others compared to this place. When you see this […]

Review Museum Van Abbe @ Eindhoven
Review Museum Van Abbe @ Eindhoven

Review Museum Van Abbe @ Eindhoven To be honest, the first time I stepped into the Van Abbe museum Eindhoven there was some sort of weird exhibition with old ropes. It smelled like mold and I only saw the ancient main hall at the entrance (which is the old part of the building), so I […]
