Café La Clé offers a relaxing evening on Maastricht’s elegant promenade

La Clé promenade café in Maastricht

Maastricht’s sedate promenade requires a soul to be seated awhile, partaking of a refreshing nightcap before repairing to one’s quarters for the night.

Quite bizarrely, there are few such hostelries open late enough for such pleasantries, so our delight was unparalleled when we happened upon the rather stylish Café La Clé, an establishment propitious to such undertakings, opening most nights until midnight or so.

With inexpensive and flavoursome beers, wines and spirits, and first class, simple bar food, this superb little café can even boast the patronage of Mirusia Louwerse among its distinguished guests, although once you have sampled it, that may not come as too much of a surprise.

Our tipple of choice was a Grimbergen, and to gently quaff it in the late evening air, whilst watching the reflection of the setting sun on the tower of Sint Martinuskerk and its architectural neighbours across the Maas, in the Wyck district, was indeed to follow one’s bliss for a pleasant hour.

You won’t find many places where you can obtain a late, riverside drink in this excellent city, so be sure to avail yourself of the one where this most desirable circumstance can be relished to the fullest.
