With its cosy and colourful atmosphere, picturesque canals, breathtaking medieval city centre and buzzing nightlife, the city of Utrecht is a hidden gem full of lovely people and stunning places. Selected with great care, Le Guess Who? would like to introduce you to the 2022 edition of the festival's Treasure Guide.
In the mood for a drink or two? Visit Willem Slok, one of the oldest cafés in the city of Utrecht, or go to Rabarber for a nice cup of coffee and a piece of homemade cake. Feeling hungry? Have breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Utrecht's 100% plant-based restaurant BROEI, grab a delicious burger and a beer at Het Muzieklokaal or enjoy Karibu's LGW? hangover breakfast. Are you a bookworm? At Boekhandel Bijleveld you can find an excellent assortment of Dutch and English books, and in the small local independent bookshop Savannah Bay you can discover books specialized in feminism, LGBTQI+, gender, and diversity. For a great record shopping and crate-digging experience, you can head over to Plato or Dig It! Recordstore to browse through some of the best new and second-hand records. Visit the natural wine shop SEC, or go to De Bierverteller to explore their impressive beer selection. If you fancy watching (music) shorts in Utrecht's atmospheric art house cinema with the style of old Hollywood, then Springhaver is your place.
