Van Alles en Co

Are you familiar with the Woensel Westside Stores? Here, you will find all kinds of shops and food spots like Van Alles en Co. This colorful coffee bar and vintage shop in one on Edisonstraat, has an always-sunny sidewalk cafe. What's unique about this place, is that everything you see is for sale, from the chairs to the vases. See something you need to have? Just put it on the bill! 

Blue Collar Hotel

On the right side of Klokgebouw, you'll find the outdoor seating area of Blue Collar Hotel. It's cozy, a stone's throw away from the hustle and bustle of Strijp-S, but with lively music and an impressive selection of beers. We wouldn't expect anything less from this hotspot on Strijp-S with a true rock 'n roll mentality.

Stadsbrouwerij (Café 100 Watt)

An ultimate favorite is the sidewalk cafe of Stadsbrouwerij, better known as Café 100 Watt. The reason why? You've got the Dommel as your view and award-winning beers as a thirst-quencher. The picnic tables and the cozy courtyard garden make this place extra fun. Enjoy!

Terrace Kerkstraat

Residency for the people

Residency for the People (or the Dumpling Club) is a lovely place to hang out in the little garden right next to St. Catharina Church — home of the church's former sexton's house. As the creative breeding ground for emerging designers, it is also a wonderful place for non-designers to have a cocktail or a glass of wine. And don't forget to try the dumplings! 


The sun-drenched outdoor seating area of Thomas can be found in front of the characteristic building. There are comfortable beach chairs, picnic tables, and large umbrellas for shade. After all, you'll have sunshine here all day long! Don't forget to check out the impressive murals inside the building, that used to be a concert hall.

Radegast 040 & DENF

Want to enjoy a drink with a green view? At De Witte Dame (former Philips factory), you'll find two unique outdoor areas overlooking the transformed Clausplein. One of them is coffeebar DENF, where you can start your day with great coffee, breakfast, and the first touch of sunshine. Then easily slide to their neighbors, Radegast 040, for a wide variety of beers and bites! 


OST Bar & Kitchen

Just a short walk from Kleine Berg and you're at the multi-purpose hotspot OST Bar & Kitchen. After their success on Sectie-C, they opened a spot at Paradijslaan. Not much has changed, it's still a paradise for bites and drinks. You can't miss the red chairs outside! 


One of the spots that always feels a bit magical is the outdoor area of restaurant Ketelhuis. All the tables scattered over Ketelhuisplein and containers full of graffiti provide a stunning view of Strijp-S. Combine this with a refreshing drink and one of their amazing pizzas, and Bob's your uncle! More into large pints of beer? Head over to the beer experts from Biergarten. Can't handle the heat? Treat yourself to award-winning ice cream at the colorful parlor Intelligentia. Win, win, win!

Fifth NRE

The NRE-terrein is not just any industrial spot transformed into a hip breeding ground. The place has a rich history as a gasworks site and a place for municipal utilities. Building five, nowadays better known as Fifth NRE, is a lovely urban spot where you can go for Sprout coffee, groovy dance moves in The Bar, and a fancy four-course diner. And there large outdoor seating area in the 'courtyard' of NRE-terrein, of course! Traveling by bike? Have a break at café Cyklist

Kelderman en van Noort

Kelderman and van Noort, KEVN for friends and intimi, is a hidden gem just outside of Strijp-S station. Here, you can check out cool exhibitions, and settle down at their outdoor cafe. Kids can have fun on the soccer field across the street while you enjoy the sun and a cold drink. Check KEVN's calendar for their famous taco nights, and your sweet summer evening will become even better.
