The attraction is the whole quarter. Parking on the street is possible but sparse. There is a lot to look and see. A lot of bars, restaurant and shops are located there. The architecture of the buildings is interesting, like in nouveau art style.

Great place to go for a weekend stroll (many shops are closed on weekdays): there's lots of vintage clothing stores, antique furniture places, a flea market on Place du Jeu de Balle, many restaurants and cafés, tattoo parlours... Typical Brussels district - must see.

A lively area with an endless collection of shops selling modernist items from furniture to bric a brac, art galleries, brasseries and more. Eat at Restobieres

Lively, good weather than nice terraces with good food and drinks. If you need antics or art all shops and possibilities are in this place.

It's nice flea market with many second hand stuff. At first sight you may think there's nothing interesting, but after some searching you can buy great glasses and plates and vinyls from 60's only for 2,5euro! Don't expect there any antiques.

It was really interesting to see this part of Brussels, as it feels like stepping into another, more diverse world (as opposed to the central parts further up). However, I did not find the Quartier as charming as expected. There were interesting second-hand shops but...More

We have visit this square several times and always found something "new" to buy. It is especially nice to be there on a Sunday. There are several cafe's next to it where to can rest and have coffee or something to eat.
