About us


Welcome to our cocktail bar situated near the marina, the hotspot for trendy
people in Blankenberge.

Inspired by cities like New York, Barcelona and Cape Town, l’Apereau gives you the vibes of an international cocktail bar. Since our opening we have the ambition to bring a new cocktail drinking culture to the Belgian coast. 
We are achieving this with consistent use of fresh and seasonal ingredients, super-premium brands and the craftsmanship of our bartenders, without compromises. 
Therefore we would like you to experience and indulge these cocktails, selected especially for you.

Walnut/Rye

A Modern twist on the herbal bitter "De La Louisiana" where we highlight the flavours of walnut by using walnut oil & Kiss My Nuts Belgian vermouth. 


Parsley/Cep

One of my best friends Michael Vrijmoed loves to use vegetables in desserts.  
So we make a sweet & sour cocktail with his amazing gin & typical autumn flavours. 


Pear/Hazelnut

This new Irish whiskey "Roe & Co" screams out to be mixed with pears.  This easy drinking longdrink has a small hint of hazelnut.


Apple/Thyme

One of those forgotten spirits is Calvados is served long and exited.  
We mixed this old school apple spirit with jasmine cinnamon flavoured vodka, some lime and homemade clove liqueur.


Inglorious Kamikaze

"He scalps the flavours out of your tongue" quote by Jeroen.  
A Sour cocktail with a Asian twist using the new complex gin barrel aged malt by Asta Morris.  
Not yet on the menu but served as the new suggestion for whisky lovers.
