JEU’s location
in Utrecht

JEU is located on the ground floor of parking garage Paardenveld, at walking distance from Utrecht Central Station. You will find us on the opposite side of the parking garage entrance, in the area of the pop-up outdoor space ROOST aan de singel.


Would you like to join our young team? We currently have vacancies for part-time waiters/waitresses and a fulltime bar manager. Our kitchen brigade is still looking for talent, so there is also a vacancy for a qualified cook.


At JEU everything is set for your (first) jeu de boules experience. What do you need to play the game? What are the rules, how many balls can you throw? And most importantly, when do you kiss “Fanny”.

About JEU “de boules bar”

JEU is the first jeu de boulesbar in Utrecht. Why Utrecht? The “Dom-town” is lively and has a broad variety of hospitality and fun group activities. But it could still use some JEU! Because, where do you go if you want to go somewhere other than a bar, the movies, a poolhall, the bowling alley or an escape room? Exactly, you can go to JEU!

With JEU the old game of petanque gets its own place in the lovely city of Utrecht, only in a renewed, hip version. Jeu de boules is no longer a dusty, old men’s game and the new generation has rediscovered it. So, it was about time to get the game its own place with a healthy dose of balls, beers and bites.
