Drinking & Nightlife

Maastricht has a thriving bar scene and most cafes serve food. The east side of the Vrijthof harbours numerous options, while Onze Lieve Vrouweplein and nearby lanes are arguably cosier on terrace-warm afternoons. Three cafes have enviable river-facing terrace-perches beside the east end of St Servaasbrug. The Coffeelovers chain's most audacious barista joint is within the Boekhandel Dominicanen.
