Visited October 2012.
This was one of the earlier stops on our walking tour / bar hopping trip in Antwerpen. The draw here is that they have two house beers made with genever as well as several real genevers available. The beers tasted like rum and Iím apparently not a fan of genever, though it is more palatable than most liquors. We showed up in the late afternoon so the place was pretty empty and service wasnít bad once we were actually served. The beer selection isnít overly extensive but they have a couple of decent choices on there. Now that Iíve tried the genever-infused beers I donít have much need to come back here.

Open but not a Ratebeer place, I would "unlist" it.
Small place, with strange interior decoration, very old, not impressive. The beer selection is very limited (4 tap beers and 12 bottles, very normal). This is mostly a place for distillates, such as jenever; and I would go back for that, not for the beer.

Right across De Groote Witte Arend Ė to be honest I didnít even realized that this place has beer because this is a Jenever bar first & very foremost. Lots of Jeneverís to try, plenty of flavours, cool little place, nice service. Fun place to visit & hangout, apparently some brews & beer based Jeneverís available. Close to the centre, lots of other options nearby & well worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood.

Good but limited selection. Always busy. Itís nice to sit outside on a warm evening trying to pair jenever with beer. My tip is hazelnut jenever with Corsendonk Pater.

Great genever bar in Antwerp (thereís a store across the alley as well). Not the greatest beer selection, but make sure to try the Rader beers with gin/genever distillate in them. Pretty decent service, nice atmosphere, and good genevers.

Right across the road from the Groote Witte Arend, this corner bar is really all about Genever although the beer list isnít a washout.
My wife, two friends and I propped the bar up late on a Sunday evening, watch carefully by the pub cat, who strolled along the bar-top as if it owned it, finally settling on a locals lap a couple of bar-stools away from us intruders.
A hip, trendy feel to the place, friendly and helpful staff, mixed customers in age, parenthood and nationalities, all enjoying themselves.
This is an ideal last port of call, sadly I was driving in the morning, so no Genevers for me, didnít stop my wife and the other two from having some though.

the jenever bar in Antwerp. a very nice stop if youíre doing a pub crawl in the city centre. had a decent beerlist, (rochefort for example) but nothing extraordinary. try one of their hundreds jenevers (i recommend a korenwijn)

This is a lovely bar, aldo this is more for jenever than beers. They have more than 200 Belgian jenevers (like snapps). in all flavor. Is from the same owner as the shop across and íDe grote witte Arendí. Nice and friendly staff, nice place to meet other people

No a beer bar, but a huge selection of "Jenever". Though, the only place I know in the nabourhoud that serves the lovely Witkap beers. Cool place to visit. In the center of Antwerp.
