The shops have long closed their doors, but that doesn't mean that Venlo is ready for an early night. Two cinemas, a theatre, a brand new pop and music podium and a former church converted into an performance arena means a score of things enjoy on the cultural programme. Dance the night away or prop up the bar in one of the many cosy bars. Or sip on a fine wine in one of the wine bars. The choice is yours. Enjoy your evening!
Preuf & Praotlokaal de Klep
In a unique spot in the shadow of the former Monastery Church Domani, in the centuries old Keizerstraatje. As well as two monastery beers from their own micro-brewery, the bar has a huge range of other speciality beers. Voted number 4 in the national Bar Top 100 in 2016!
