A unique location on “The Islet” (Het Eilandje).

Once upon a time the Antwerp dockers could go there in winter for a hot bowl of soup or a salutary cup of coffee. Almost two centuries later, the former soup kitchen on the small isle is still a spot where warmth and conviviality are core values. In 2000, no effort was spared in transforming the exclusive building into a picturesque party location for private and corporate events, with a soul. This new location offers space for all sorts of events: from a classic reception, a tasteful dinner to a dazzling dance party! And thus it happened that LaRiva saw the light of day!

And now, almost 20 years later, the venue has been given a new look. The custom-made marble bar and the velvet interior are the most striking witnesses thereof, but also the music system got a total makeover.

Endless possibilities.

Whoever walks through the doors of LaRiva is presented with an ocean of space. The intimate lounge, the wide terrace of 300 square meters and the 2 floors are truly an enrichment, ideal for dinners, receptions and walking dinners or conferences for large groups, but with the right furnishings that are also suitable for more private companies. In addition, that evening you will also meet Silverspoon, one of the leaders in the world of events and LaRiva’s regular catering partner. From the dining room you can observe how the entire kitchen team sets the culinary bar particularly high. This undoubtedly whets one’s appetite for more.
