Summer is coming closer and we all know what that means… Almost time to go sip a refreshing cocktail or a glass of wine in a très cool pop-up summer bar in Antwerp!

One of the best things about summer? Cosy nights with friends, sipping a delicious glass of rosé wine or a refreshing cocktail on an enchanting location. Here are 3 pop-up summer bars in Antwerp that you should definitely put on your ‘to do’ list!


  • Nine years ago, Bocadero was a small beach bar at Waagnatie. Today it has grown into one of the coolest hotspots in A-town! It’s the place to be for sunbathing and chilling on the beach, enjoying a meal in one of the restaurants, sipping a cocktail in the apero bar, working out on the padel courts or buying some essential summer accessories in the beach shop. New this year: a kids’ corner where the little ones can play and have lots of fun. At night, Bocadero transforms into a cosy and lively beach club with a covered lounge.
  • There are lots of activities all summer long such as festivals, markets, Tuesday evening salsa nights… You can check all the events on the website or on Facebook.
