This is actually the bar of community centre The Zandput;
Of course it's only only opened if there's a special celebration or event in the centre, but anyway, you may like to check it out! The beer is cold, the coffee hot and the staff are friendly villagepeople.
Have to add that on most occasions it's quite uncommon to hang around here for a drink.

The Olmenruif is one of the most popular hotspots in Serooskerke.
The bar is part of camping Olmenveld, just outside of Serooskerke on the road to Veere, so in summer it's popular for tourists, but locals seem to increasingly visit the venue as well!
Opened in the weekends only, but probably in high season every day -will check it out later-.
Besides a bar you'll find a small amusement centre here as well, with a pin ball machine and various other games.
Very lively!! Unfortunately they play a bit too many German Schlagers.

Joy opened mid-80's with a free beer night, and became soon very popular, attracting visitors from many surrounding villages, even from towns as far as Vlissingen, and in summer a large number of mostly teenage tourists from the campings (how nice for us ;-)).
While most other bars in the area were fixed on musictrends, Joy initially gained popularity with a mix of hitparade, oldies and especially rockmusic.
Afters some years the popular local DJ left and an attempt towards trendy and modernisation failed hopelessly as expected. The countryside was not yet ready for hiphop and acidhouse.
Even the "miss wet t-shirt competitions" and performances of local bands couldn't resque Joy. It had changed too much- and died.
Joy has been closed for several years now and is waiting for a new owner....I'll keep you up to date ;-)
Here you can hang at the bar, talk to local people and of course have a beer or two.
This cafe is not owned by villagers but by a nice Chinese family. So you can practise your Mandarin a bit :-).
The venue is becoming more and more popular with locals...
Dress Code: It would be a little odd to come in dressed up completely with suit and tie. Casual dress might be more suitable :-).
Address: Torenstraat 17
