This cafe is a great place to have a great night out.They often have live music like Jazz,Rock'n'Roll and Jam Sessions.
The cafe is famous because of his very rich choice in beer (about 125 different ones)!
If you feel like playing some billiards this place is excellent to do so in the afternoon.
Located at the beginning of the Grote Markt, right by the Church, this place is always crowded. But it is a very nice bar where students can be seen only once in a blue moon :-) So, there are some places where you can go for a drink or two, without sharing the place with drunk teenagers.
O'Mearas often have live music performances and also have big enough screen to watch important soccer matches.
The staff is the most friendly in the town and you'll always feel welcome.
This place is also located at the beginning of the Grote Markt. The building, which is very old and actually beautiful, is attached to the Grote Kerk. Less popular than other bars in Breda, 't Gapperijke is a nice place to have a beer, but don't stay there too long, there are many other places to discover :-)
If you are like me not into house,techno and whatever more and don't want to go to a disco go to this great place.
The interior alone is worth a visit with it's wooden floor and tables and all the different ornaments.
A wide variety of people come here and the atmosphere is always perfect.
The music is mostly 70,80 and 90's.
Dress Code: Just dress like you want to.
They just finished the new casino which is located right next to the Chassee Theatre.
So if you feel lucky or just wanna have a look visit this by the state legalised casino.
Dress Code: As long as you were a tie and no sport shoes you will get in as a man.Not sure about the women actually,guess a nice dress will do...:-)
If you're tired of clubs and bars and look for something different, the Breda Bawling and Partycentrum is the right place for you. The place is very unique actually, it was the first bowling lane in the Netherlands and remains unchanged until these days.
Large groups are welcome, just make a reservation before.
You can also enjoy the restaurant inside or just have a few beers in a bar.
Dress Code: No code, would only suggest you wear socks with no holes ;-) 'cause you'll be given special shoes there which you have to wear in order to play bawling.
The buiding that used to be a church, then a convent, and later barracks is now Breda's casino. The architect kept some parts of the interior untouched, so you can enjoy the surface while gambling. The most amazing one is the little room that remained exactly as it was in 12 century. If you're an high-roller (cheer up, high roller is Breda is somebody with 50,000 Euro to gamble, not 1 million) then you'll have the possibility to see the old remains. The only difference that you'll notice there is, of course, cameras on the walls, but they are hardly visible and won't spoil the impression.
Wish photography was permitted inside, I would definitely take some pictures for my VT pages.
Entrance fee is 3,50 Euro. Free entrance for ladies every Wednesday. As a new to the casino you'll be given an opportunity to learn how to gamble first, during the training you won't be able to win any money but if you're doing well you may get some prize.
Dress Code: You don't have to dress too fancy. Our dear VTer Sabsi was able to enter the casino wearing sneakers ;-)
The casino is very beautiful inside with its light brick walls and lots of colourful "deco stuff". Unfortunately it is not allowed to take pictures inside.
The entrance fee is 3.50 Euro (make sure to bring your passport, otherwise they won't let you in!) and with your ticket you receive 3 vouchers for the basement of the casino where you can gamble for prizes. On the ground floor and upstairs you can gamble for money.
Dress Code: I'm not sure if there actually is a dress code for Dutch casinoes but if so then it isn't very strict at all compared with Germany so don't worry! We went there in our "normal" clothes.
We went to the casino for a while at the VT meeting. I liked the architecture from the outside so I was dying to see the inside.
The casino is located in an old monastery, the old walls have been kept and along with the modern interieur it's a fascinating mixture!
You have to pay in but if you come for the first time you get vouchers to play for free at the training tables and machines. Of course you can't win the jackpot here but if you don't want to lose your money it's perfect to play just for fun. I wouldn't mind being rich to go here to gamble though!
Dress Code: I was amazed that we could go in even we were a bit scruffy looking. The dress code apparently says no sneakers but I even went inside wearing sneakers.
At the Chassé Theatre you can watch plays, concerts, cabaret, movies and such. You won't find the standard movies here, but more an international program of special films. We go there quite often with some friends, which is usually a great night out. With your theatre ticket you can enter the adjacent casino for free!
Dress Code: No special dress code, but as the casino is located next door you might keep in mind that there you'll have to dress a bit smarter for that.
This was a nice Irish pub with very friendly locals. After a pint of Kilkenny, Rease reached stage 3 (of 4) on his scale of inebriation. This was almost our last stop. We went to another place, but I don't remember the name...it wasn't worth remembering. It's near this place. If you walk out the door here and start to go into the place on the corner to your right...don't! It reminded me of the place Brigette and I went to in Brussels, but not as entertaining...just annoying. :-)
Dress Code: Well, it's a pub...
This is an very old cinema, it has 5 movie rooms with place for 740 visitors.
It's at a distance of 10 minutes from the railway station
At the end of 2008 they close this cinema because a huge new complex is build at the edge of town.
However i still like to add this picture at this page.
Omearas is an Irish pub in one of the main streets of the old city, I must admit that it was nothing really special in this pub, the main reason to choose this one was that they had a wide screen that we could watch the Euro 2004 football matches. But I should mention that the table service was very good and they serve you very fast new cold fresh beers.
Around the Grote Kerk, there are two squares: the Grote Markt and Havermarkt. Most of the pubs, bars and clubs are all located on or just off these squares. You needn't walk far at all for a night on the town, and there are many places I can recommend you to go - Hart van Breda (pic), O'Meara's, Miller Time, De Massa - so just walk around and you're bound to end up in a place of your liking!
The atmosphere is just great. Friday's tend to be a bit quiet but they're great for a relaxed evening. Thursdays and Saturdays are the big nights with lots of people everywhere.
Dress Code: You can dress up casually and go practically everywhere.
Café Oebele, for a splash of disco and retro-feeling! The place keeps on grooving until late during weekends and is a favorite with the locals. Definitely on my to-do-list!
The place has stepped right out of the funky sixties - where's Austin Powers when you need him???
Dress Code: Casual will do.
