De Maecht van Ghent

My guide Last update 1 year ago
De Maecht van Ghent is one of the most popular cafés in Ghent’s centre. It is situated at Korenmarkt and the place is usually busy throughout the day. In addition to dancing, De Maecht van Ghent is the place to be for those that fancy lunch, dinner or just a drink. At night, there’s always a queue of people waiting to get in and even early evenings can be a rather busy but bustling affair. The café is situated inside an old listed building, the décor consists, among other things, of murals with the theme ‘virgin’ since Maecht is the Flemish word for virgin. In addition to wine and beer, cocktails, whiskey and champagne also flow freely here. If you’re starting to feel a little bit peckish then just order some tapas from the bar to get you going again. The music played is mainly charts and De Maecht van Ghent is often the stage for performances and events.
