It is where Dutch cabinets have arisen and fallen, major political decisions have been made, and Queen Wilhelmina herself has sat down for a drink: Bodega De Posthoorn. Opening its doors in 1932, founder Jan Knijnenburg created a central spot where artists, writers, painters and politicians could meet, talk and drink – something that has not changed since then. “Our old prime minister Lubbers said it perfectly: Bodega De Posthoorn is one of the pillars of The Hague,” begins chef and owner Michael Meeuwisse. Due to the war, the café had to change its location in 1946 to the beautiful Lange Voorhout. It has lost nothing of its allure since then.
