At our lounge bar we have decided to bring some of the best beers from The Netherlands and Belgium. Our variety of beers is large and ranges from pilsners, blond, dark, IPAs and wheat  Fun fact is that House of Barbaard was brought to life while drinking beer at Tom’s and Guido’s favourite beer brewery in their hometown.

Try our homemade

Bitterballen

The hot and crunchy taste from home.

Bitterballen are one of Holland’s favourite snacks and are the perfect bite alongside any drink. These famous Dutch snacks are made with ragout made from braised beed, typical Dutch spices and mustard. What makes them extra delicious is that they are hot and crunchy on the outside but soft and gooey on the inside. The Gentlemen of our House are a huge fan Bitterballen and therefore have made them especially for you.
