It's such a beautiful city, and this location is very lovely. We went to the social club, a restaurant nearby, and it was terrific.

There are a lot of restaurants and bars with plenty of space to walk around. Some shops are on the outside streets, but also some busy roads. It’s a cool place to stop by.

On a lazy Sunday morning, after a walk around the centre and a trip to the Cube Houses we dropped down to the Old Harbour for a quick coffee. Very pleasant views of the old boats.

Bit fancy, secluded 'harbour' with cafes and restaurants near Blaak. One of the few places with extensive terraces, certainly worth a visit on sunny days.
