Refer to Antwerp as “t stad” (THE city).
THE city, as if there’s no other in Belgium. Why? We are proud of where we live. We even have a saying that “The rest of Belgium is parking space”. Other Belgians consider us snobs for that. Jealousy, what can you do about it?
Don’t be scared to go to a party in a golden training suit. With students from all over the world coming here to study fashion, we’re used to some really weird clothes.
There’s new stuff popping up every week: new party places, new shops, new art spaces, ... So ask a hip looking local where the action is.
Antwerp has many good clubs ...
... like RED&BLUE, CAFÉ D’ANVERS, AMPERE and VAAG. And new ones open every year. But the real cool stuff is pop-up parties in changing locations all over town. To find them, google or facebook your way to Noord feesjes, Ultra Eczema, Clitclap, Radio Centraal, SPEK and Sunday Matinee parties.
