Key West Beachhouse… Where?!
A beach house? In Utrecht? You probably wouldn’t expect it, but right in the very centre of the country, next to the A2 motorway, you’ll find a wonderfully laid-back beach house. On the shores of the beautiful recreation lake Haarrijnse Plas, just north-west of Utrecht, the classically styled Key West Beachhouse opened in 2014. And although there’s no sea to be found anywhere nearby, the ambiance is beachy as it gets. They have silky soft sand, chilled-out tunes and a sunny veranda for you to wind down and enjoy a relaxing drink, easy conversation and sophisticated company.
Key West is open all day, every day, summer and winter. The menu offers classic dishes from all over the globe, many of them named with a beach-twist in mind. How about a First Boat to Havana for starters, an Island Hopper as main course and then a Fresh Pelican for desert? And rumour has it they do some mean G&T’s as well… just don’t forget your bikini!
