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.
