Bar Leon is one of the coziest places to come together in Borgerhout. I love coming here on Sunday mornings with friends for breakfast or brunch, whenever we feel like enjoying the perks of not having to cook in the morning, so that we can spend the time on more important things in life, like catching up 🙂 In the evening this bar is transformed by a silver disco ball, which at first sight doesn’t seem to fit in, but actually creates a very laid back and magical feeling. One of my favorite drinks is the red brown beer ‘Nan der Ghinsten’, which is also surprisingly cheap.
Outside of Bar Leon is a playground, which makes it a perfect place to visit with children. This space is deeply rooted in the neighborhood and organizes different events throughout the year. My favorite one is ‘Bouger Bouger’, a local flee market with food and music in the heart of Krugerplein, which takes place twice a year, in April and October. For more information on the market check the facebook page or contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are in need of a place for gatherings, meetings, castings, birthday parties or workshops, you can rent out their space upstairs, which has a lot of light and the essentials you need. Mail them and they will get back to you asap.
People are really friendly and if you ever find yourself with a flat tire, there is always someone with a pump to help you out 😉
