Origins Cocktail Bar Leuven
Drinks made with love!

About Us

Hi, we’re just your friendly neighbourhood cocktail bar.

Our Story

Origins is a cosy little cocktail bar located at 'de Oude Markt' (the Old Market) in the historic center of Leuven. Our doors first opened on september 21st of 2014. Back then we were dedicated to creating the best Gin & Tonics in town. On our never-ending quest for knowledge we stumbled upon the gentle art of craft cocktails. We fell in love working with fresh ingredients, homemade syrups and cordials, bottle-aged cocktails and the taste of it all. Ohlala, that taste!

Our team is captained by 'De Geens', a special kind of entrepreneur with a big smile and an even bigger heart. He's always on the lookout for new and exciting ways to extend his palate with new flavours, exciting spirits and fresh techniques.

Since 2017 we also embarked on an ‘On The Road’ journey. With that concept, you can book us to enjoy swell cocktails at your location. Every ‘On The Road’ booking is custom tailored to your needs. We can shake (or stir) top-tier cocktails at your dinner, housewarming, small or big party and even at your company outing.

We're also in love with music and the fine arts so we like to organise events at our bar. You can enjoy our Acoustic Sessions, Long Player Evenings, Artist Signing Sessions and Jazz Jams. Are you interested yet? Find all our events on our Facebook Event Page.

Find us on Facebook, Instagram or in real life at Oude Markt 2 in Leuven.

The full bar!

Are you having a birthday bash or a company party and are you looking for a classy venue? Well, look no further! You can hire our entire bar and staff for a private event and we'll take care of all your needs.

For a full bar private hire we charge € 1800. We do work with safety deposit of 50% of the budget to confirm the booking. This will will assist in covering potential damages caused during the event. Should no damages occur, the safety deposit will be used as a down payment for your event and deducted from your final bill. All remaining amounts must be paid at the end of your event.

Every private hire is bespoke so contact us and we'll work out the details.
