Rembrandt and the Old Bell

The Old Bell is a typical eetcafé and English-style pub located at Rembrandtplein, Rembrandt Square. Eetcafés are popular places and may serve anything from simple snacks to full three-course meals. The Old Bell’s menu is all in English, no Dutch translations. The all time British favourites fish ‘n chips and meat pies stand next to classic Wiener schnitzel or typically Dutch croquettes and saté. But it’s the beer on draught that draws the crowd; Guinness Stout, Murphy’s Red or Hoegarden White. The wide range of bottled beers are also worth a closer look. What about a Kriek, Duvel, Oud Bruin or Beck’s.

Rembrandt Square is lined with restaurants and pubs, all with outside seating in summer. At night this part of Amsterdam comes truly alive. Tourists and locals swarm the area for a taste of the party scene. Bars and clubs are packed with revellers of all genders and preferences.

The square is overlooked by a statue of the painter Rembrandt and a 3D version of his most famous painting : the Night Watch. See this famous painting first at Rijksmuseum, then at Rembrandtplein.
