Maastricht Nightlife: 96 reviews and 98 photos

  Charlemagne pavement terrace
by ger4444

One of my favourite pubs. Its old, it’s a brown wooden pub with cozy small tables, and in summer a terrace located on the Our Holy Lady square, looking out at the basilica. The terrace at the square is at evening in summers nice, and athmosperic lightened up by the coloured lights in the sky hanging above you. As a little speciality they have a portion of ‘zuurvlees’ (maastricht sour meat) and rabbit in Maastricht style (a must taste). And they have many special beers on bottle. The staff is mainly students who earn some extra for their study, they are of course therefor a bit less experienced, it can take long before they spot you and it takes time before you get the bill, and then again, before they come back to let you pay. Staff is a bit impatient now and then, but they try to keep friendly. You know how it is to work in the tourist industry…run, run, run. Local owner, Simon, kept the place an attracktion to many locasl and visitors during the whole year.
