Do not panic at Bar Paniek! This is one of the places that makes me love Antwerp so much. I’m always happy getting here for the first time after a dark winter and a rainy spring. For me, summer starts here and now.
Location, location, location… Bar Paniek used to be a boat next to the MAS museum but had to be moved in 2015. At first I thought it would never be that great again, but was I wrong. This place is great, no cars driving by and no tourists, although I suppose I could make an exception for you.
I adore the attractive green patch they’ve created in the city, making it one of my favourite hangouts with a relaxed atmosphere and nice music under, when possible, a blue sky. Here I can read a book and enjoy the sun, meet up with friends or just stare at the boats passing by on the water.
Get there before summer ends!
