About Us

Hi, we’re just your friendly cocktail service.

Our Story

Origins started out as 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!

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.

In 2020, during the covid-19 crisis, we decided to turn the page and start a new chapter in our journey. We left the 'Oude Markt' and are — for the moment — focussing on cocktail workshops, catering, tastings and consultancy. Read all about it at the services section. Our 'Origins Bottled Craft Cocktails' remain available through online order. We'll work on expanding the options.

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.

We will return with a full bar and so much more when the time is right. In the meanwhile, you can follow what we're up to on Facebook or Instagram

And if you want, we'll come to your place and make life a mix up a little glass of sunshine.

Services

Let us take care of you.

Catering

While we really love our place in Leuven, we're can also take our cocktail bar on the road. We can setup a bar at your home for that special dinner or for two-hundred colleagues at your companies party. It's all custom tailored to suit your needs and our craft cocktail bartenders will make it shine.

Workshops

Workshops can be fun! Are you hosting a BBQ party for friends and do you want to learn how to make some great cocktails? Are you in town with a group of your dearest colleagues and are you looking for a fun teambuilding? Or do you want to learn how to make a decent mocktail? We can teach you just how to do that in a fun and hands-on way!

Tastings

Do you dream about spirits? Well, if you're talking about drinkable spirits, we can organise tastings. Let us tell you the story filled with interesting facts about the precious liquors and show you the best techniques in order to maximise your palate.

Consultancy

Do you own a bar or restaurant and want to take your cocktail game to the next level? Seek no longer.
