Sports bar with good selection of beers and always live sports on the big screen. Located right on the main square, it is good for late night drinks.

Really nice place to have a drink and party. Very good music, friendly staff and reasonable prices. Only negative that men have to pay to go to the toilet (normally guests should not pay!).

Great place to sit back and relax while enjoying one of the various beers... only hint would be to check the weather app, if it's showing sunshine all day then this place will be full all day! - So get there early or take your chances that someone's leaving just when you want to sit back and enjoy

Cafe Studio is a Golden Oldie. It's been around since ages and has always been popular. It's located in the heart of Haarlem and has a terrace on a prime location. It's typically a bar place, for people who don't mind crowds, who like beer and live music.

I try to think, how to explain what makes this place so wonderful. Maybe they have many things that other pubs have as well. But they are different because of the good atmosphere they provide. It is wonderful. Friendly, AND good service and a large collection of excellent beers. I know it can be crowded in the evenings, but we... More

A very special place to experience Jopen beers. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The architectural conversion of the church is something to wonder at. The beautiful windows and high ceiling give it a special atmosphere. I would not call it cozy though and it can be a bit noisy if a busy time. But all in all a... More

First time in Haarlem and fell in love ! What a small beautiful place. It was a sunny April day and stumbled on this place by accident.

Get a space outside under one of the heaters. Prices of almost all drinks are low by Europe standards. Skip the meatballs, they look and taste like the frozen ones Ikea sells by the bag.
