“Jenever says it all!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

This is a jenever bar. Stop expecting anything else!!! Enjoy the atmosphere of the typical style of bar in Antwerp! Don´t expect great service or too many smiles, but do expect the widest selection of excellent jenever you ever tasted!

“Very good bar. Huge selection of jenevers”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This is a great bar. No piped music or carpets but good beer and a huge range of Belgian jenevers.

“Excellent bar, without too many tourists!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

A great, relaxed place, with its own pub cat! We visited twice, first for a snack lunch (food here is basic but cheap and good - soup, sandwiches) and later for evening drinks. There is a small but good-quality range of beers, but the main attraction is the vast list of jenevers. Trying jenever for the first time, the staff seemed pleased to give a beginner's guide.

“A must when in Antwerp”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

A lovely little bar that sells all sorts of different types of gin, some of which they make themselves. The lemon gin was especially nice. There are seats outside as well as inside, and they also have a shop across the road. They do some basic food – the homemade soup was very good and reasonably priced.

Good service, the staff are happy to listen and recommend. Best jenever bar I've been to in Belgium. 200+ choices.

Good mix of locals and tourists
