Het Pomphuis Antwerp was a pump-house used to empty dry-docks, originally built in 1918-20. Since then, the building is protected by Architectural Heritage. The building boasts neoclassical and art nouveau features.
Additionally, the staircases around the walls lead to the second floor where visitors can feast upon the huge round-arch windows. Each window offers a view of the outside giving the impression of a round dome and open space. You can still see the old pumping machinery in the basement.
There is no place like Het Pomphuis Antwerp
The historic building re-emerged on 25th of May 2002, as a restaurant and bar. Antwerp had gained another prized pearl after its grand opening. Moreover, Het Pomphuis houses a restaurant, bar, lounge, and terrace that invites guests from all over the world to experience Eclecticism in its purest form.
And on Saturdays, it only opens from 6 pm to 9:30 pm. Make your reservations accordingly because all it takes is an email or a call to the restaurant and voila! You’ve got a table on the terrace with waterside views. Incroyable!
Brasserie Het Pomphuis Antwerp specializes in French, Belgian, Seafood, and European cuisines. Even the menu is eclectic! We suggest you try their renowned sole with green asparagus and North Sea prawns with a delicious bottle of wine. Their sommeliers have hand-selected exquisite wines that go perfectly well with the dishes.
A classic in Antwerp.
