De Muze means the muse. When entering the doors of this place you’re immediately transported into another time. De Muze is a venue where furniture never gets old, just elegant vintage. This jazz cafè is one of the oldest jazz venue in Antwerp. The place was founded in 1964 by Walter Masselis and Tone Pauwels. As from then many owners have changed, but not the fame nor che charm of this place. This is the café where Bohemians and Artists meet and share thoughts about politics, literature and music. This place was defined the ‘artistic temple’ of music. If you love jazz, that’s the place to be. You’ll smell the art in here, it’s all over the place.
Don’t forget to look closely at their tables, it seems that almost every customer over the years decided to leave a small carved present in the café before leaving.
Check out their agenda on their website: De Muze has jazz concerts almost everyday for the whole month, even on Sundays afternoon.
