Antwerp // Coffee & Vinyl

Posted on November 9, 2012

While shooting our episodes for Het Laatste Woord, we focused our concept around reoccurring elements from the past. Because our script for music was based around the beauty of old vinyl records and record players, we needing a location to shoot these LPs. What better place to do that on a sunday than in Coffee & Vinyl in Antwerp. So halfway through our day we had a small filming moment in the coffeebar and also snuck in a little relaxation moment (watch the episode here). We tried a little of bit of the entire assortment from a mint tea for our photographer Phebe, a coffee for Patricia to my current addiction, a chai latte.

The first part is more or less the “seating area” but pay close attention to the hidden corner just before the second section starts. Nice place to sit down and enjoy your drink. After that the walhalla for vinyl lovers begins. You can go through the records forever. From pop to old school rock, they have it all. Don’t forget to also have a look around because the bar also triples as an art gallery. I for one was in love with an image of a the blond girl hanging on the wall. To sum it up, the perfect spot to spend your lazy sunday afternoons.
