HAVEN SURF’S INCOMPLETE ‘PLACES WE LOVE IN ANTWERP’ - LIST
New wine bar of the team behind Camino. Wine bar might sound a bit too traditional. It reminds us to bars were people dance and have the time of their lives, but with amazing wine selected by sommelier Daan and amazing food. No reservations, come early. (Like between 18h and 19h on Friday or Saturday)
Bollandusstraat 17, 2018 Antwerp

Antwerp’s first & original veggie restaurant.
They simply serve the best falafel in town. Go for the Falafel “Allerlei”. You won’t be disappointed. Close to their spot is PAKT and De KONINCK brewery. Both worth a visit as well.
Lange Leemstraat 188, 2018 Antwerp

Kasteelstraat 57, 2000 Antwerpen
RESTAURANTS & BARS
Really close to the store, at Volkstraat
Bun & Little Bun
Go and visit Little Bun for lunch too for Vietnamese street food taste some at Sint-Jorispoort. If you are more into sophisticated Vietnamese cuisine? Bun at 100 meters from the store, is the place to go. Eating there feels like traveling to us.
Volkstraat 43, 2000 Antwerp
Sint-Jorispoort 22, 2000 Antwerp

Tannin, Urban Street Wine
Dangerous place so close to the store, to be honest.
Antwerp’s finest wine bar by Mo & Tawat. Stop by and have a glass at their terrace. Excellent food option to share as well.
Volkstraat 50, 2000 Antwerp
Belgium’s, if not Europe’s, number one skate shop - full stop.
IJzerenwaag 3, 2000 Antwerp
Our neighbors. We love their collections, the only reason we don’t sell it is because they opened a store next to us!!! Check out their female collection ‘Girl Of Dust’ as well.
Volkstraat 2, 2000 Antwerp
Our friends from Howlin’ knitwear, based in Belgium, 100% Made in Belgium and fans all over the world. Pay them a visit, you won’t regret.
Nationalestraat 20, 2000 Antwerp
Just across the street from our store. One of Antwerp’s most exciting women’s stores. They were the first to open a retail store at Volkstraat, many years ago. Go and have a look at their always interesting selection.
Volkstraat 1, 2000 Antwerp
Antwerp’s one & only street wear & fashion store. Recently opened a new space that’s definitely worth your visit. Their owner’s are huge fans of The Royal Antwerp Football Club, just like us, so what can go wrong?!
Theodoor van Rijswijckplaats 4, 2000 Antwerp
No nonsense, great price quality option in a great neighborhood.

Not a cheap option but the location is stunning.

Jules Bordetstraat 5, 2018 Antwerp
Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp
What to say? Seven centuries of art: from Flemish Primitives to Expressionists. World-famous masters. The largest and most important collections of James Ensor and Rik Wouters. Yet the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is much more than even this internationally renowned collection of art. The KMSKA is the only Flemish museum with high-level scientific status. It has been closed for renovation and reopens in September 22 after a renovation that took more then 10 years.
Leopold de Waelplaats 2, 2000 Antwerpen
The Middelheim Museum + De Nor + Mika
Probably our favorite to visit. A lace where art and nature go hand in hand. Quite impressive. They also have a nice 'museum - café’ with home made food and drinks and a cultural nightlife spot as well. Antwerp based artist Dennis Tyfus create a sculpture that’s also a bar and a place for (mostly) experimental music and performances. Amazing & inspirational place to discover new things. Should be on top of your list.
Middelheimlaan 59, 2020 Antwerpen
Tim Van Laere Gallery
The ’South’ of Antwerp has many art galleries. We pick out one of them because the new space is just amazing and because it’s the gallery of Ed Templeton ;-)
Jos Smolderenstraat 50, 2000 Antwerpen
