Imagine yourself walking through the city of Rotterdam, asking yourself which café is the best for a good kick off for your weekend trip. Ask someone who passes by and probable he or she will answer: Rotown. Since 25 years people from Rotterdam, but also from outside the city, go here regularly for a drink, a good conversation, visiting a concert or to have lunch or diner.


25 years at the Nieuwe Binnenweg

This pop podium, restaurant and cafe is already suited at the Nieuwe Binnenweg for a quarter century. Lots of people love to go here, it’s a place visited by all kind of people. Daytime you see men in suits having lunch, in the evening hipsters are taking over the terrace outside while in mean time rockers are going nuts at a concert inside. It is always crowded, but in summer time even more. Then you almost have to fight for a chair on the terrace. Nice thing to do is watching the people on the street walking through the tables outside. It’s almost like a parade where people check out what everyone is wearing.

Many bands played here



Rotown is a small, but long cafe. At the back you can have lunch or diner in the restaurant. At the front you can have a drink or watch music performances. Many famous artists played here, like Selah Sue. She played here even before she was famous. When you like to see a singer/songwriter or band performance, then check out the calendar at the website of Rotown for an updated schedule.


Opening hours:



Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday, 11.00 – 02.00 o’clock
Thursday, Friday and Saturday 11.00 – 03.00 o’clock
