The Breakaway cafe story

When Breakaway cafe opened in December 1993 it was immediately a huge success. Many people from all over the world have enjoyed our service and hospitality since then. We are the first “Flair”Cocktail bar in the Netherlands and are considered as one of the best bars in it’s category.Order a cocktail and before you know it, bottles, glassware and cocktail shakers fly into the air doing double Rittbergers and pirouettes.

Breakaway cafe is unique in the fact that we combine Cocktails, a classic American dinner, 6 full size pool tables and a dance floor all under one roof! Big artists such as ZZ Top (you can find their autographs on the 1947 Harley Davidson in the centre of the bar), Shoala Ama and the late Herman Brood have honoured us with their visit and have complimented us on our choice of music, the quality of our Cocktails and our relaxed atmosphere.

To maintain our high standards and to live up to the demands of today’s modern guests, Breakaway Café was re-styled in August 2004. Take a good look around and see our authentic decoration from the 50’s and 60’s mixed with today’s electronics, while our musical time machine takes you back in time.

Cheers! and see you soon


Your favorite bartender,
 Mad Mick
