Container Bar Noord becomes Container Terrace
Because pop-up bar Container Bar Noord on the Noordplein cannot open until at least September, the organisation has come up with a great alternative. Two old cafés on Noordplein are being converted into one bar with a large, welcoming terrace. The terrace may be as big as 120 square metres with the possibility of an extension. Container Bar Noord opens in July or August, keep an eye on the Facebook page for information.
