Smokey Jo's garage - summerbar in Antwerp


Already open for a month and I have been twice and not written about it, shame on me! So without any further ado may I present you Smokey Jo's Garage! Thé summer hotspot in Antwerp! 

Think Hillbillies, banjos, dungarees and beards and add some great De Konink beers and top notch bourbon and gin cocktail by the Dirty Rabbit team and you are sorted for a great night out.

With beer garden style tables and benches and the bbq smoking in the corner, the casual mood is set immediately. Yes, you are at the right place to enjoy some fingerlicking Deep South recipes. For those who like to sit down more properly, there is a restaurant part too. My favourite spot: the tree house, that overlooks the square. Best place to be on a balmy evening when the day finishes with a beer. (did you spot me in the photo!)

Check out the diary because there are film nights and other special events, don't worry if it rains there is always Jo's garage! We loved all the decoration and the tongue in cheek details you find everywhere. (The children's carwash!) Spend some looking at the 'Before I die' board, some are hilarious, I bet you will be thinking of your list all day.

What is the vibe? Laid back Southern Comfort

What is on the menu? Deep South cooking. Bar menu: the kind you lick you fingers for: BBQ pork ribs in the American Smoker, drunken wings, and BBQ sauce meatballs. Restaurant: Black Aberdeen or Rib Eye on the Big Green Egg, says enough. A place in heaven for the one who invented this dessert: grilled peaches with bourbon sauce and pecan nut ice cream

When to visit? Everyday of the week, great for after work drinks with friends.

The bar is open 7/7 until 4th Sept (see opening times:
Boomgaardstraat 17
2000 Antwerpen
