Froufrou's Vintage is located in the cozy Modekwartier is filled with clothing, accessories, furniture and lighting. 

Plaatsmaken consists of a graphic and digital workshop with an exhibition space. They are located in a converted building adjacent to Molen de Kroon and provide space and opportunity for the creation and display of art, and for meeting, connecting and interacting among artists and with the public.  

A little further on in the Modekwartier you can nestle among the bookcases. Indulge yourself with a delicious coffee, special beer or a pastry from Bakery Paul Koekie while you get lost in a good book.  

The Post Theater is a stage for established names and new talent. The audience should have the opportunity to discover talent. They also offer space for young makers to work on their performances completely independently during continuous periods.  

Spijkerkwartier: Hidden Gardens 
In the Spijkerkwartier there are eleven public gardens. What is special about these gardens is that they are largely maintained by residents. The gardens all have their own name, such as Water Garden, Spoortuin and Ecological Garden. In our Citystore we sell the Spijkerkwartier experience card. Spijkerbuurters fought for their trees and value green. The experience map therefore emphasizes the Flora and Fauna of the neighborhood.  
Bomboca is a Portuguese coffee bar located on the edge of the center of Arnhem in the bustling neighborhood "the Spijkerkwartier". You can visit them from early in the morning for a freshly baked pastel de nata and a Portuguese coffee. Besides their homemade cakes you can also come to them for a full breakfast or lunch.     

Sole Alternative 
Are you looking for a vegetarian restaurant in a cozy living room atmosphere? Then you have come to the right place. At Enig Alternatief they find it important to cook as much as possible with organic and local ingredients. Choice stress is not an issue here either because the chef puts together a changing weekly menu every week.  
Focus Filmtheater
Focus Filmtheater Arnhem started in 1973 as a small cinema. The film theater continued to grow and in June 2018 a big dream came true: on the Audrey Hepburnplein in the middle of the city, the new Focus Filmtheater opened. In five movie theaters and an open-air theater on the roof, Focus offers a varied selection of current films and special events. Under one roof with the film theater is the spacious, atmospheric café-restaurant Focus | Eten + Drinken. 

Oostpool Theatre  
Since 2021, award-winning director Daria Bukvic has been at the helm at Oostpool as artistic director. The new motto became: Theater Oostpool shakes you up. The renewed Oostpool wants to take the audience into what the world is dealing with now. The stories are young and fiery, but also personal and funny. Oostpool opts even more emphatically for a diversity of backgrounds and cultures. From the firm conviction that theater is for everyone.
