Going Out

In the larger cities in the South Netherlands, you will find a wide selection of places where people can enjoy music while enjoying a drink in an exciting atmosphere. The cities' main squares generally have an area with daytime lunchrooms and night-time dance bars where you can go for a relaxed evening full of fun, music and dance.
