Antwerp | Recap & Hotspots

Another weekend away. But this time not for a sneaker event or a press trip. But just a weekend away with two of my best friends in this beautiful city which is just a 2,5 hour drive from Amsterdam. Antwerp! 

Pretty much all we did was eat.. cause to be honest; thats what we do best. And in between the food there was a bit of shopping and culture. So I thought it would be nice to share the places we’ve been on this space since I get a lot of positive replies on my hotspot and travel posts lately! See the photos below for a glimpse of what my weekend looked like (and meet my goodlooking friends Merel & Renske). Also I picked up a few new items whilst there. But I’ll show those later!

  • Avenue | Belgiums finest sneakerstore! All the highest accounts and the best staff!
  • Lockwood | Right next door to Avenue is skatestore Lockwood, very very dope selection of the best skate/streetwear brands! they even did a collab with Nike SB last year!
  • Vier | Another dope little sneaker/streetwear store. brands like Stussy, Nike, Champion, Vans, Reebok etc.
  • St. Vincents | Antwerp is the best city if you like interior shopping! Lots of cool design stores and this conceptstore is both house goals and closet goals in one.
  • Coffee Labs | We went there for late lunch; So a lot of the things on the menu were sold out already so they improvised to make us some lunch with all the leftovers they had. DAMN this was good! Also; their blueberry cheesecake and carrotcake is to die for! (plus they’re opening their rooftop terrace soon, that must be so good)
  • Fiskebar | I’ve been wanting to go here for a looooong time so as soon as we knew we were going to Antwerp for the weekend we made a reservation at this best seafood restaurant in town. The girls went for oysters (not my thing haha) but the cocktails and wolffish with asparagus were bomb!
  • MoMu | Mode museum aka Fashion museum is one I visit pretty much every time I’m in Antwerp (at least when I like the expo)
  • Barnini | We went for lunch at this cute little place before we took the train home again. Besides the cute interior they have a big selection of homemade iced teas, bagels, loaded coffees and more!
