What’s new in Rotterdam? For our New in Town series we’re always looking for new hotspots in Rotterdam. Of course we also keep an eye out for awesome hotspots that are opening soon! In this edition we feature 10 new hotspots in Rotterdam. For instance, the very cool new Glambar in Rotterdam Noord, where we recently went for a make over!
10 New hotspots in Rotterdam
1. The Glambar
Last month we visited the first blow dry and make-up bar in Rotterdam: the Glambar! Together with our guest blogger Evelien we had a girly afternoon filled with make-overs, tea and delicious cakes. The concept at the Glambar is simple: no cut, no colouring. Just blow outs and make-up! In addition, the glambar offers drinks and bites, such as our favourite healthy SUE bites. Why not visit the Glambar before a night out with your girls? Or visit the Glambar for special occasions and look at your best!
Want to learn more about the Glambar? Be sure to check out their website.
