I have never visited Antwerpen before. So my first time become a quick in and out. Two days, one night. Mr. Padovani, the Global Brand Ambassador for HENDRICK‘S Gin called me. You like to join me for a presentation at the VENUEZ Antwerpen? For sure! So, during the day, we gave some nice presentations about the lost Art of Bathrobe drinking. And how to use a good shot of HENDRICK‘S Gin in this hang over drinks. If you like to read more, here you find some details about bathrobe drinking: Part I & Part II. Never the less. Also, we had less time, we managed it to visit a few great spots for Drinks and also for Food. So, if you ever come to Antwerpen, feel free to visit this places. One think I realized in my short stay in Antwerpen, which is maybe useful to know for you as a traveler. The TAXI situation in Antwerpen is quite tricky. It is always good to call in advance because it often take 15 minutes to get one. I had a few taxi rides this days and I found a guy I like to recommend: Jusuf ! I call him

Taxi Antwerpen. He is running a small company with 6 caps and is doing an amazing service job. You can reach him via email (he is checking his iphone quite often) at taxify@hotmail.com or on his cell phone +32 485 198999. Next to his great and quick service in Antwerpen its much more cheaper if you call him in advance to pick you up at Brussel Airport (Which I Did). If you take a cap from Brussel to Antwerp it is around 120 to 130 € ) Jusuf offered me the ride for 80,00 €. So, call him - he is your man for Antwerp. But now, its time for a DRINK: DRINK

Cocktails at NINE Great Drinks, great Bartenders. Piotr Kuzmicki and his Team taking bartedning very serious and serve you great drinks. Very nice location, great design. An outstanding bar ! EAT FISKEBAR I used to work together with Nikolaj Kovdal in Hamburg, at Cafe Paris. Since a few years, he lives now in Antwerp and is running this amazing fish Brasserie.
