At the corner of the intersection of Proveniersstraat and Molenwaterweg – amid the sudden boom of restaurants you’ll find this beer & wine bar slash bistronomie. I used to go here quite regularly some years ago when it had another owner, but I lost touch with the place. A couple of years ago the new owner successfully changed the place and caught my attention again.
For me this is the kind of place you need when you are looking for a place to be lazy and meet up with friends on a Sunday afternoon or when you want to catch up with someone you haven’t seen for a while. The bar is pretty lively throughout the whole week but never overcrowded, there’s enough space to move around a bit.
On a sunny weekend afternoon the terrace fills up easily with mostly local thirty somethings and at night you’ll get a chance to have a real Rotterdam chat at the bar. Le Nord serves pretty nice food, mostly Mediterranean and a number of draft beers and wines by the glass. Especially the malbec I had the other day was really good.
