“Perfect cocktail stop after a day in Antwerp”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Everything about this bar was crafted with love, from the carefully curated selection of grown up cocktail and spirits to the lighting and leather sofas.

We were given a huge welcome and settled in the comfortable back bar area which is a mix of exposed brick and leather sofas.

There are only 2 (carefully selected) beers, so if it's a beer hall you're after you'll be better in one of the hundreds of other bars. Reserve this one for when you want to kick back in a Chesterfield sofa and relax with brilliantly constructed drinks.

“A Cocktail Oasis Amid A Sea of Beer”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

A very nice cocktail bar that prides itself on being able to make all the classics. It is small but has a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. We ordered an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan and the bartender seemed genuinely pleased at the opportunity to show his skills. The Old Fashioned was very good but the Manhattan was a little off. We then had a lengthy discussion about the best recipe for a classic Manhattan. He said he used 50% whiskey and 50% vermouth and I suggested it should be closer to somewhere between 67/33 and 75/25. He produced several bartender's guides that had varying recipes and we agreed that North Americans prefer a slightly different mix than Europeans. The important point, though, is that it was a very nice and very friendly place and they will mix a drink any way you want it. Certainly worth a stop!

“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We found this bar by chance and stayed all night - the bartender clearly knew what he was doing and did a great job! Cocktails are a bit more expensive than in other places, but absolutely worth it. I will definitely come back during my next stay in Antwerp.

“Great atmosphere - great cocktails”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We were recommended this bar by the hotel receptionist ("The best cocktails in Antwerp."), which was certainly lucky as Dogma is not yet listed on TripAdvisor and only seem to have a Facebook page. This bar sits in the old town near Grote Markt and is emulating the 1920s with old furniture and early jazz music. The staff was very friendly and passionate about its craft. It's a great place for chatting over really good, interesting drinks with friends or a date.
