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.

Honey / Hierbas

I've created this sweet "old-fashioned" as a tribute for one of our dearest friends: Tom Roesems.

He has past away last june.

I used his favorite rum, Zacapa 23 and Hierbas d'Ibiza, which referces to his favorite vacation/ party destination. 

Cheers Tom!


Hierbas/ Rucola

The upcoming trend of using vegetables in cocktails is hotter than ever. This sweet herbal cocktail uses nutty and spicy rucola, which is also an ingredient in Syrco Bakkers's Hierbas de las Dunas.


Celery /  Sour

Instead of using only citrus to make this cocktail sour, we also use a splash of apple vinegar. It's works great with celery and lovage.


Lemonverbena/ Elderflower

This is a marriage between products from the South of France: Absinth, elderflower and lemonverbena topped up with Crémant.

It's very refreshing, but I must say, afterwards u can use a little nap. 


Cacao / Mint

Let's call this an alcoholic milkshake with the flavours of "After Eight.  
This cocktail is also known as a blended grasshopper.
