A Game Night at the Casino of Ostend
Less than 15 minutes from Bruges and an hour from the country’s capital Brussels, Ostend is a popular tourist attraction, and a visit should be on your Belgian bucket list. Nicknamed ‘The City by the Sea’ the beach is one of the most popular attractions, drawing holidaymakers, locals, and even some celebrities each year. If you’re less of a sun worshipper and prefer the excitement of spinning the wheel of fortune, visit Casino Ostend where you can spend an afternoon relaxing and winning some money! The casino is located in Kursaal, less than 5-minutes’ walk from Leopold Hotel Ostend.

History of Ostend

Ostend has come a long way from its roots as an unassuming fishing village. We’ve endured invasions from Vikings and the Spanish held territory here, using the city as a base during their battle to maintain sovereignty over the Dutch during their 80-year war for independence. It was Belgium’s first king Leopold I who first set up a British-style seaside resort in Ostend after taking his new nation’s throne in 1831. These days Ostend has a lively nightlife scene with plenty of good restaurants and a major shopping centre.

Casino Oostende

Modern Ostend is a haven for fashion lovers, holidaymakers, and celebrities which have included stars from Lord Byron to Albert Einstein. Casino Oostende is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. Marvin Gaye even shot his video for his legendary song “Sexual Healing” in the casino. Everyone is welcome in Casino Oostende with games and tables for all budgets and abilities. Casinos are not just for James Bond Movies – Casino Ostend is always busy with excited gamblers and experienced players all hoping to win some money. Put your fate, and your money, in the hands of lady luck and try your hand at one of the many games in the casino. Enjoy a classic table game of roulette, blackjack, stud poker or spend a couple of hours betting small at the electronic slot machines. The Casino Kursaal also hosts a range of concerts, musicals and exhibitions. Take a look at the what’s on guide and buy tickets from their website.

Dining at Casino Oostende

Combine your afternoon of fun at the casino with a 3-course meal from the in-house restaurant Brassi. The restaurant, located on the first floor of the casino is stylish and inviting, serving French cuisine with a modern twist. There is an excellent wine menu and plenty of other drinks to choose from in their fully stocked bar including some delicious Belgian beers. The first shrimp croquette festival was also held here in 2021 and Brassi emerged as the winner, beating 11 other worthy opponents. Their shrimp croquettes should be on everyone’s must-eat list for Ostend.
