Antwerp is hipper than you think (well, it's hipper than Brussels at any rate) and, though small in size, the city abounds with smart, stylish cafes and bars. One of the smartest is Q-Lounge, an attractive little cocktail bar in the centre of town. The décor is contemporary and striking with lots of cool, soothing blues, and a kitchen that turns out quality Thai dishes. The bartenders are on the ball and know how to turn their hand to a classic cocktail. It's for these reasons that the place tends to attract a sophisticated, professional crowd, not too young and with money to spend on life's finer things.
