‘Prohibition has made nothing but trouble!’ – Al Capone
Lefebvres Liquor Bar is the new place to go for a drink on the Neude!
Liquor is the English umbrella term for all alcoholic drinks. At the Liquor Bar, the Lefebvre team offers tailor-made advice upon a wide range of liquor. Through their expertise, you could toast daily with locally brewn beers, exceptional wines, exciting ‘zero heroes’, and legendary spirits.
Lefebvres Liquor Bar proudly offers a stage to local breweries and small distilleries. As such, we work together with brewery De Leckere and with distillery De Pronckheer. With the latter we have even joined efforts to distil our own Lefebvres NODE Gin and Vodka. The herbal ingredients for this gin and vodka find their origins on the former Neude, or Node, which once was a swamp packed with all kinds of herbs and flowers.
For those who are in the mood for food, the menu offers a selection of delicious dishes and snacks to share, such as a tasty party food platter, artisan Dutch bitterballen, traditional pizza with a variety of toppings, spicy chicken wings, and oysters with a hint of Node gin or vodka.
Once inside of Lefebvres Liquor Bar, the inspiring story of liquor is told by the interior design. It has not always been this customary to be able to decide what drink fills your glass. Precisely 100 years ago, newspaper headlines worldwide read “U.S. is voted dry!”, referring to the prohibition of alcohol in America. And that’s how America’s biggest gangster, Al Capone, became legend; by supplying rebellious liquor-lovers with drinks to toast with.
In short, at Lefebvres Liquor Bar we celebrate with you the choice to enjoy a good glass of whisk(e)y, a spicy gin, a full-bodied wine or delicious locally brewn beers – the kind of luxury people during Prohibition in America could only dream of! This is the place for drinks with the good old pub vibe, where your thirst is quenched, where you enjoy a bite, where Al Capone’s spirit is still alive, where you may laugh out loud or speak low.
During the ending of Prohibition in 1933, President Roosevelt spoke the famous words: “I think this would be a good time for a drink.” We can only applaud this and are looking forward to welcome you soon!
