Once it was the Tropicana swimming complex, full of children splashing and playing in the pools and zooming down the waterslide. Today it's home to the hip Aloha Bar: a multifunctional dining facility on the Maas, with bar, restaurant, coffee roaster, and riverside patio. The Aloha Bar always has something interesting on offer, from the regular schedule of children's activities to evenings devoted to dance or film nights.

Bars & Nightlife

Like so much else in Rotterdam — the architecture, the people, their cultures and customs — the city's nightlife is filled with contrasts. Glamorous cocktail bars and classic pubs, hip and happening dance clubs and intimate concert venues. Depending on what you like to do when you hit the town and what mood you're in, Rotterdam can offer you wildly different nights out. It's all up to you!
