Plein Publiek – Dancing in the city

Believe me, you will never find this place, if it weren’t for a certain local telling you about this secret spot. Bar/restaurant/Club Plein Publiek is hidden between 4 big old apartment buildings (the Fierensblokken is quite well-known), in the Sint-Andries quarter.

A club in the garden of an apartment complex? Only possible in Antwerp? No, those buildings are uninhabited, there are no people inside, and in anticipation of a new initiative, Antwerp gave some youngsters the opportunity to create a new hipster-spot. Welcome to Plein Publiek.

Fire places will welcome you during our winter.

This veranda is a beautiful pearl, lit by colorful lights, giving you a glimpse of the surrounding buildings.

Plein Publiek is a cocktailbar, a pop-up restaurant, bar and club. Come here if you want to dance, and with the winter coming, you’d better move on this veranda. Look around when you enter the doors that lead you to the veranda. Young artists get their stage, young musicians can rehearse and play for the audience. Every Friday and Saturday there is a party! 100% guarantee!

Tip: the entrance is at the back of the building, so walk around the block and check for big doors.

You can spot me here especially on a Thursday during the free concerts.

Personal tip: if you’re too early, just walk around the corner, to Café Congé, open from Wednesday till Sunday, 12:00.

Personal tip: check their FB page the see all the events at Plein Publiek.
