If you're tired of clubs and you want to party in a place where the bouncers doesn't mind you look like a bum Bar Venetië is your sweet spot.
Based in Borgerhout near the end of the Turnhoutse Baan Bar Venetïe isn't what you expect it to be. From the outside it looks like some shady bar but once inside you can go to the back where you can find the dancehall. On a Friday night chances are high you'll find 500 people sweating their asses of on some experimental electronic hipster gay music. This is definitely not an insult 'cause it will probably the best party going on in Antwerpen that very night. Not kidding! Gay people are the only people who really know how to party.
During weekdays there won't be much going on here. You could have a chat with Angela, the Romanian barlady, who would maybe offer you a Palinka (Romanian schnaps) if she's in a good mood.
