Charlie’s Rotterdam | New cool kid in town
The first time I visited Charlie’s Rotterdam was during a press opening, and one of the managers whispered in my ears that this is also a perfect spot for a digital nomad (I know, hipster word ;)). Well, of course, I had to emerge myself into this place and see what it has to offer.When you walk in, you do not think this is the place to be for your mobile office; Charlie’s Rotterdam is situated in/under the movie theater. What used to be the entrance to the underground parking lot is now the coolest kid in town. The place is super bright and has tons of light due to the high ceiling and the big windows. It might get busy during lunch hours, so I recommend you to go after the lunch.
I particular liked the window seat table. However, if you want some less distraction, you can take a seat at one of the big picknick like tables. Charlie’s thought about everything. The power sockets (alongside the window seats and the big tables) have small USB ports build in so you can charge your laptop ánd your phone at the same time. Don’t worry if you get hungry from all that hard work; Charlie’s is famous for the hotdogs and flammkuchen. The flammkuchen I had was the vegetarian one, and it was outstanding. What I liked about this place is that they are serving some of the finest products from Rotterdam (bonus points!); Which is odd since they are part of a commercial cinema franchise. From the coffee (Heilige boontjes) till the beers (Kaapse Brouwers) till the gin & tonic (Loopuyt). That means you can go straight from work to having some pleasure.
Charlie’s Rotterdam is the newest kid in town. The place is super bright and has tons of light due to the high ceiling and the big windows. With fast wifi, good food, and a great atmosphere you don’t have to look very far when you are looking for a place to work.
