The 5 best wine bars in Antwerp
Tom and Ingrid run this innovative wine bar and bistro located in a former warehouse in the old port quarter. Founded more than 20 years ago, it’s a friendly spot to sit with a glass of good wine and a dish of Ingrid’s Italian or Asian-inspired food.
It’s easy to spot this deeply romantic wine bistro. Just stand outside the Royal Fine Arts Museum and look for the building with the green and yellow tiled façade. This mellow, candlelit restaurant is the perfect place to share a bottle of wine. Breakfast is also served here.
Baravin is a stylish wine bar located in a 19th-century town house with high ceilings, romantic murals and an intimate backroom. This is a relaxed spot to sit with a glass of wine and a bowl of olives while French chanson plays quietly in the background.
4) Bar Palmier
Chef Dennis Broeckx and his wife Ellen opened this intimate wine bar in 2017. The interior is filled with tropical plants and rattan furniture to create a relaxed, mysterious spot. The drink list includes rare wines, cocktails and gueuze beers from small Pajottenland breweries like De Drie Fonteinen. The food menu features creative bites like smoked mackerel and pork belly to nibble before heading off to dinner.
5) Belgian Wines Bar
Two brothers run this small space in the theatre district dedicated to Belgian wines. It has a modern interior with bare concrete walls and tiny round tables. Here they serve delicate local wines from emerging Flemish and Walloon vineyards along with interesting Belgian cheeses.
