Absolutely a must to have a bite to eat when visiting Piushaven! With an extensive menu and a wine list that you can tell yourself about, you can rest assured that your visit here will soon be a success. From 11:30 you can visit here.

The name RAK has several meanings, of which you probably didn't know what they mean. RAK means 'straight stretch of water', like for example the Damrak. But also 'go on rak', which means 'go out'. In addition, it is also the abbreviation for Restaurant Aan de Kade. Because when you walk along the water, it almost seems as if the restaurant floats on the Piushaven.

Club Jolie, the urban hotspot in Tilburg! Club means: a place where people meet each other. Where people can enjoy good food, drinks and each other. In a relaxed, nice ambiance, a cool interior and with good service. A place where guests can experience an unexpected and cozy evening. Always with a friendly smile and a welcome.

Jolie, as in: initially as in the name of the daughter of the owner Onno Jansen. Apart from that, Jolie stands for the French translation of the word: handsome, cheerful and the urban hotspot adds the word 'cosiness'.
