Food, Jazz and beer
Today, I checked out more beer bars, and took more beery photos. Having freshly grilled scallops at Nordzee on Place St Catherine was a delicious re-enactment of my Brussels days. When Femke was ready with her work, we met up at the beautiful art nouvaeu-bar Greenwich, with chess players and locals having a beer. Next stop, live jazz at another favourite, ever-cool bar l’Archiduc, then delicious food at Como como, the pintxos restaurant opposite l’Archiduc.
Continuing the evening, we went to the very nice bar Walvis, then to Mappa Mundo. The latter seems to have lost a bit of its attraction, but Walvis played as cool music as ever. In the evening, we stayed at the old style-grandeur Hotel Metropole.
