The 6 best wine bars in Antwerp

1) Tannin

Tawat has created a hip urban wine bar where he shares his deep love of wine. His favourite bottles hang from leather straps on a deep green wall. You can experiment with a wine from South Africa, Bulgaria or Serbia, along with a plate of sardines or some Korean beef gyoza.

2) Osaka

This is a relaxed spot for a glass of wine where you can just drop in and grab a stool at the bar. It occupies a modest corner building that was once a Japanese restaurant. The old name has survived, along with hints of Japanese interior design. But it is now a place to meet up for a glass of organic wine and perhaps a bite to eat.

4) Rocky

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.

6) Het Archief

Ernst Aben transformed a building that was constructed over 170 years ago, originally intended to serve as a repository for books and provincial archives, into a captivating wine shop and bar. The interior is truly remarkable, boasting a stunning display of cast iron throughout. Aben's collection features wines sourced from all over the world, with a particular focus on smaller, boutique wineries. Het Archief also houses an establishment of Bakker Aldo who bakes authentic sourdough bread the slow way using nothing more than flour, salt and water.
