Café Beveren, Antwerp

2 Vlasmarkt
Tel: 32 3231 2225's insider take:

Antwerp is famous for its "brown cafés," street-corner bars where centuries of cigarette smoke have stained the walls ocher and inspired the paintings of Adrian Brouwer and David Teniers. This is a typical example, occupied by retired bargees from the river Scheldt, tourists, and an unfeasibly large Wurlitzer organ. Customers sometimes dance on tables. Not for the fainthearted.

Closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
