Jazz Club

“This might be the most iconic bar in Antwerp. It is a 3 floor bar in a unique 16th century building. Often there is live jazz music. This bar used to be home to some of Belgium's most legendary musicians and artists, some of which can still be found there today.”

“Perfectly located with a view on the Cathedral and the City Hall, this is a cozy and crowded place. Famous for students and other locals enjoying a typical Belgian beer. On late nights people can dance in the back of the bar. For other crowded dancing café's, check out 'T VERVOLG, this is a dance bar where nights can get vague.”
