In ʼt Aepjen
Candles burn even during the day in this 15th-century building – one of two remaining wooden buildings in the city – which has been a tavern since 1519: in the 16th and 17th centuries it served as an inn for sailors from the Far East, who often brought aapjes (monkeys) to trade for lodging. Vintage jazz on the stereo enhances the time-warp feel.
