Popular fun-minded café-bar in a former warehouse
Opened in 1993, Hessenhuis remains one of Antwerp's hot spots, known for its sprawling available drinks menu and its continued commitment to spirit and liveliness. Set in a reinvented 16th-century warehouse, the two-floor space has a capacity of about 300. The daytime clientele are mostly straight local workers looking for a drink, a soup or a croque monsieur, while the gay men arrive early evening to transform the atmosphere from quietish café to frisky bar, with DJs upping the club quotient from Thursday to Saturday. In February 2017 Hessenhuis staged its first ever Leatherpride Belgium pre-party.

      Zeer vriendelijk personeel en the place to be voor open- minded people. Tot ziens daar!

      Antwerp is Fantastic!
      Visited Hessenhuis twice while in Antwerp. Great staff and drinks in a wonderfully restored warehouse. Nice for a drink at happy hour or more elaborate entertainment in the evening! A must while in Antwerp!!
