Bars and Cafés

Café Popeye has live music every Wednesday and a second bar in the basement where they play a lot of club music. The student association throws a party every Thursday and the bar is crowded during the whole weekend. The basement bar opens on Thursdays and Saturdays since the upper level of the bar gets so crowded on those days that more space is needed.

Students

Student association Trias Omega is an association which aims at students of the Hogeschool Zeeland. With the fusion of the three student associations Trias Omega has inherited a rich history surrounding the life of students in Vlissingen. This is given form in a number of different ways. One of these ways is our student night. This night is held every Thursday in the basement of Cafe Popeye.
