Vitrine, in the Quartier General popular with creative types, located on Marnixplaats. The bar wears its name well, as its entire frontage is glazed. Vintage decor, friendly staff who greet trendy Antwerp locals at any time of the day.

Doesn't time fly?


How can you, without realising, spend an entire day at Vitrine? Well quite easily - You start off by taking a leisurely breakfast, making a few phone calls and answering a handful of emails. Meanwhile, friends passing by stop for a drink and sit around the table for a chat.
After they leave, around noon, Marnixplaats is already bustling with people, and before you know it it's lunchtime! The café has lunch options to suit all budgets, such as the home-made baguette with mustard sauce.

The window


When the weather is good, you can take a seat on the terrace, or stay inside in the seventies styled room. The building in which Vitrine is located is a rather special triangular shape, around which wooden benches are dotted. The large windows which cover the frontage of the café give the feeling of being outside while still inside.
For the last two years, this has been the place for trendy Antwerp locals to enjoy a Spritz, the Italian drink made from aperol*, cava* or prosecco* and sparkling water. Best to get there in the early evening as Vitrine closes up at around one in the morning.



Open Monday to Sunday from 10:00-01:00.

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.
