What could be better than spending warm summer afternoons with a cold drink in hand, watching the sea move in and out from the shore and catching up with friends. Ostend has a great reputation as a seaside resort town, welcoming families, couples, and groups of friends for as long as we can remember. One of the best things about the warm summer months is the reopening of the Summer Bars, many of which only open for a limited time. Leopold Ostend is a short walk from the seafront and many of the seasonal summer bars. Our team have chosen their favourite beach bars to spend their lunchbreak or enjoy time with friends on days off.
