a really nice evening cycling around Eindhoven finished up in the Strijp-S. That area was formerly an industrial place where Philips’ manufactures resided. After Philips left Eindhoven, that place didn’t become a trashcan, moreover, it is developed in very interesting way.
Since the beginning of current century that place is a Mekka for creative people. Really interesting cafe and restaurants, non-standard design solutions, marvelous events — that makes Strijp-S a must-see place. You can eat out; you can buy smart clothing or get your hair cut in one of two building: Gerard or Anton, you can visit open-air cinema. If you check the event agenda, you can get right into the party epicenter.
Here is one restaurant we visited. The place is anti-glamourous at all. Just check it out.
Creative people, young generation… Do we forget something? Right, graffiti!
I’m going to make a big post dedicated to the graffiti in Eindhoven at all so see you later!
