Expected: New Places

Tilburg's city center is on the move. And that attracts, also for entrepreneurs. Even in coronation times several entrepreneurs chose to settle in downtown Tilburg. We made a list of five locations that are currently under construction, but where you can soon eat, drink or go shopping.

Vine - Wine & Dine

For the beer freak, the Piusplein has been a hotspot for years but soon the wine lover will also find her heart's desire here. In this picturesque building, which formerly was Yammie's, Vine, wine & dine will soon be opened. What to expect? Vine is one of those cozy wine bars where you are really spoiled, with special wines and matching dishes that are freshly prepared by the chefs in the open kitchen. Before Vine can open there is a lot of work to be done. Owners Judith, Timo, and Nanne hope to open the doors in mid-March. But because they can't wait (and I'm sure you can't either), Vine is already delivering lunch boards, drinks boards, and wines to your home.

Say Jess

After 7 years on the Havendijk it is time for Say Jess Fashionstore to take a new step. Jeske, the owner, has chosen a new location in the middle of Heuvelstraat. Say Jess is a real local store where Jeske from Tilburg only sells clothes and accessories she likes. The store is like she says "a reflection of myself". Besides many beautiful items you will find the warmth of Tilburg, Jeske and her staff will make you feel welcome and will give you advice.

Say Jess will open her doors in February at the new location.


The Pieter Vreedeplein will soon have a new restaurant: fish restaurant BLU will open in the former Mango. If you like fish or seafood, then BLU has it all. You can dine extensively with fruits de mer and champagne, but just as well stop by for a quick fish sandwich or a delicious shrimp croquette. If you order Fruits-de-mer, you decide what and how much will go on your plate. In this way you only eat what you really like, and you also help to prevent waste. Blu is already in the opening stage, so as soon as the catering industry is allowed to open, you can probably soon pay this restaurant a visit.


Tilburg embraced the coffee walk this year and meeting or working in a cozy coffee café is now part of the Tilburg culture. So there is definitely room for a new coffee bar! And that new coffee bar is 30ml. 30ml started as a small espresso bar. In our opinion a very good decision to choose our beautiful Old Market as a location. At 30ml you can get delicious fresh coffee (from their own roastery), breakfast dishes, homemade sweets and fresh juices. We'll have to wait, because the building will first undergo a major metamorphosis. 


Bomont is the first store in the new retail plinth under the city office. Bomont is originally a company from Zeeland and currently has 11 stores in Zeeland, Brabant and Zuid-Holland. A big name, therefore, and a big store as well: the Tilburg location will be 674 m2 in size! At Bomont, you will be able to shop men's and women's clothing and accessories from major brands such as Superdry, Polo Ralph Lauren and Scotch & Soda. Bomont will open at the end of March, which will make the new square behind the Town Hall even livelier.
