D'Hanekeef is Mechelen's oldest café. Around 1950, cafés were the hub of social life in the city and money boxes known as "spaarkaskes" hung on the café walls. Café-goers would put a small sum in them every week, which was then deposited with a financial institution, and eventually the proceeds were used to organise an annual dinner or other festivity. Today D'Hanekeef is still very much a social hub, where customers can gossip and play popular café games to their heart's content. There are some 50 different beers on the beer list.
