Buddha bar is a nice place to go out with your friends or to meet new people. Jan the owner is one of the most friendly bar tender ever. I recommend this place :)

Buddha bar was underneath our apartment and was always busy but in a good way! Lots of chatting and laughter. The owner Yan is very friendly and stays open as long as there are people there so he must have many late nights!
