The Pharmacy Knokke is a cozy bar in a secret location on the Belgian coast! Owner Jan Van Ongevalle sold his shop and then started this cute bar together with his daughter Hannah. The most important thing to them is to keep the taste innovative, so they don’t serve a simple cocktail that you can drink everywhere. You will find unique creations here that will really tickle your taste buds!
From Salesman to Bartender
Owner Jan grew up helping his parents with their clothing store. He went to a hotel school in Koksijde, and when he graduated he took over the fashion business from his parents. After twenty-five years, his passion for fashion died out. He sold the business and packed his backpack for a world trip.
One evening he sat at the bar and watched in fascination as the bartender made cocktails. There he rediscovered his old passion: the hospitality industry. After his return, he started the concept of The Pharmacy Knokke together with his two daughters and son.
The Pharmacy Knokke, An Antique London Cocktail Style
The atmosphere we see is mainly mysterious but very cozy. The interior is a touch of antique London cocktail style. It’s a place to catch up and, of course, be surprised by the delicious cocktails that are made right in front of your eyes. The bar is right on the sea! You can board here before your evening plans take place. Have a nice meal at a restaurant and end the night at The Pharmacy!
They have very nice cocktails, some of them even look real funky. This menu changes per season, they do this because every season has its own taste. Autumn has many spicy drinks, winter warm, spring neutral and summer has fresher cocktails.
They try to innovate every time and create something new. The more special, the more fun!
