A longtime favourite among Antwerp’s musically inclined, De Muze (‘The Muse’) is Antwerp’s resident landmark for live jazz. By now, it has become near impossible to name an established Belgian name that hasn’t played the café, intimate as it is with its warm wood, exposed brick and maze-like three floors with lots of snug corners and alcoves. However, in January 2017, locals held their heart for a second when the previous owner had to declare bankruptcy, but the anxiety was short-lived. No less than two months later, a veteran bartender had taken over the place, and jazz once again floated through the windows of De Muze and onto the Melkmarkt square.
