A stone's throw from the Museum of Fine Arts, you'll find a café that's as appealing by day as it is lively at night. The atmosphere tends to be young and arty, with an extra turnout when jazz concerts are held.


Local celebs


The name is a reference to the American painter Edward Hopper, whose work inspired the interior of the bar. A meeting place for creatives in their 20s to 40s, and with a prime location in the Zuid district, this jazz café is a hotspot for ‘bekende vlamingen’, that is to say, celebrity spotting. Because it's so popular with actors and artists, the place is often used as the setting for films, television series and photo shoots too…

Jazz at Hopper


On Sunday afternoons and Monday nights, the bar treats its customers to live jazz. Featuring new acts regularly, it's a good place to hear emerging artists as well as veterans like Toots Thielemans.


I go there mainly in the evenings in summer, to hang out on the sprawling terrace, sipping cocktails with jazzy sounds in the background. Nowhere else I'd rather be! You can check the concert listings on the website.

Marie-France, 32 Public relations manager

Born in Africa, I've lived between Europe, the United States and my homeland. A real mix of cultures! I'm always connected to social networks and on the lookout for great fashion, lifestyle, music and outing deals. I work in Antwerp as a public relations manager. I'm also a presenter for a TV music channel. My little extra: I like to get out and meet people.
