Speakeasy Dr Watson: back to the 20’s

The year 2020 just started and rang in a new era. However, the 1920’s, also known as the roaring 20’s are still 100 years later one of the most remembered and romanticized decades of the 20th century.

NØRD


When hearing the name NØRD most people think of Scandinavia but in Leeuwarden, it means something else. NØRD is a beautiful café and concept store in the Sint Jacobsstraat. The store first opened its doors in March 2018 after Gerard and Suus, the owners moved to Leeuwarden from Amsterdam. The couple decided to start their own business in Leeuwarden because they “saw potential in the city” with it being the cultural capital of the year. Before opening, there were no other places with the same idea of inviting their customers to stay a bit longer and enjoy a good cup of coffee before or after browsing the assortment of sustainable and local products.

YourPost’s DNA: Lisa Saager from Germany


Hallo! My name is Lisa and I’m 19 years old. I come from the very north of Germany, near Kiel and about two months ago I moved to Leeuwarden to study here.

Furthermore, I decided on the Netherlands because I have always been interested in speaking a lot of English and having a lot of international possibilities in the future. More
