Cafe Stapper is a traditional bar with good, old fashioned design and decor. The service by the friendly barman was was top class and the atmosphere perfect.
Quite simply, you’d find it difficult to find a better bar in Alkmaar.

This small place is on a place called 'platstenenbrug' (the flat stone bridge) which has a good atmosphere with multiple bars and in the summer with places to sit outside as well. It is in the centre of Alkmaar not the far away from the Waagplein (where the cheese market is kept every friday in the summer).
On friday and saturday, Café Stapper gets filled up with all kinds of people listening to all kinds of music. The place really has a party vibe, with not too much of the modern radio popmusic and a lot of weird music that drives the dutch crazy in a good sense, varying from hardrock to dubstep and the 90's 'happy hardcore'.
This is a good place to drink when the local footballteam is playing in one of the Dutch leagues, even if you don't care about football at all.
The place had a killer offer for shots at just 1 euro, so make sure you order a dropshot with every beer you get.
One thursdaynight a month, there is a different live band or dj playing in the bar setting the place upsite down.

Went here for a quick drink and to watch the football, stayed till long after midnight and had a great time. Nice staff and the people are a lot more relaxed than in the rest of the Alkmaar night life. Definitely coming back for a drink!
