Sun is shining, the weather is sweet – or so it is supposed to be… Anyway, numerous summer bars are popping up everywhere in Antwerp right now. And don’t we all just love the combination of beach, bar and food in the open air? We’ve selected five hotspots that are sure worth checking out this summer!
Bocadero is without any doubt one of the coolest hotspots in Antwerp. It’s the city’s beach, opened from May to September. You can go to Bocadero to chill out on the sand, watch the ships go by and catch up with your friends while working on your summer tan. Meanwhile you can enjoy delicious snacks, refreshing drinks and summer-proof cocktails. In the evenings, you can wine and dine in the restaurant while you watch the sun go down – how romantic! Don’t forget to make a reservation beforehand because it can be very busy.
After sunset the beach party finally breaks loose at Bocadero. Put on your dancing shoes and shake it out on the finest tunes from the DJ’s until midnight! If you like Latin vibes, you have to go to Bocadero on Tuesday, because that’s traditionally salsa night with music from DJ Pepe. Ola!
