If you’re in Rotterdam, go visit Rotown. It has a good restaurant and cafe. After 10 p.m. the tables are moved aside and the music gets louder. If there is no concert planned for the evening, it’s party time on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Popular from its beginning in 2003 is the Rotown Popquiz, presented by Rotterdam-based booking agency Rock ‘n’ Roll Highschool and hosted by Sjoerd Van Oortmerssen (who was a Rotown bartender before he became a well-known presenter in Holland). Through the years the pop quiz developed into a large pub crawl event called Popquiz Marathon with a questionnaire that leads alongside many bars and cafes around Rotown.
