Maastricht Nightlife: 96 reviews and 98 photos


when you walk from the marketplace and cross the St. Servaasbridge you directly pop into the cetrum area called Wyck (where the worldfamous beer Wieckse Witte finds its origin) just go straight away by feed or bike in the direction of the Railway Central station and you find De Poshoorn. They have (especially at evening when its sunny they have a cozy pavement terrace at the street next to the Wilhelmina Singel. The staff is friendly, they have doznes of refreshments that reminds the visitor of the typical Bourgondian athtmothfere Maastricht is known for.The pub's outdoor terrace is surrounded by old monumental houses. Th interior of the pub has completely been restaurated like it was in the old days (the poshoorn used to be a postoffice in the old day. The pub is also a hotel and has some 10 rooms. The interior of the pub flashes striking features and is a wooden brown pub. Its has some 10 typical special beers on tap and has some housemade local specialties such as "Poshoorn Plenske" (postoffice plate)

Dress Code: The public coming at the pub varies from college professors to students and locals who life in the /city Center so all sorts of people can come. Dress code is therefore "relax" allthough you could - in case you want to make aneverlasting impression - dress up as our Mayor GERT LEERS, allthough very risky to do since these days he is under hughe critic as he is troubling with the situation of trafic safety. So in case you wont be beaten up, just choose casual clothes
