Most of the cafes at the Witte de Withstraat are just cafes were you’re supposed to sit at a table and drink your liquor. Dancing isn’t necessarily appreciated in those places. However, Pulp is not your ordinary non-dancing café. Whenever I drink a few beers in the neighborhood and get the dancing legs (almost all the time), I tend to visit Pulp.
Pulp opened in March 2017 as a sanctuary for people who still want to party, while most cafes in the area are closing. So far it is a great success. Exactly for that reason it could be a bit crowded and you’ll have to wait in line to enter. Luckily the bouncers are funny guys who appreciate a good laugh.
There isn’t a special DJ. The staff just plays primarily ’80s and ’90s music. Together with the art on the walls and the plants on the ceiling, it creates an atmosphere to party to. Pulp is a perfect spot for when I’m drinking at the Witte, don’t want to finish my night out and don’t want to travel a lot to some of the other clubs in the city. It is supposed to be a pop-up bar, so enjoy it while it lasts.
