Borgerhout, or BoHo as the locals aptly call it, stays a hidden gem in many ways.

The area, near Central Station, is filled with gritty bars and clubs that cater to the alternative crowd. The vibe is raw, unpretentious, and the crowd is eclectic and diverse. Borgerhout is for those who want an authentic, edgy night out in a vibrant and exciting area that is brimming with energy. Elegant bars with vintage vibes and cool clubs dot the area, while venues like Trix and De Roma stage rock and indie concerts.
