Centrally located with tons of character and history, this crowded, slightly run down art nouveau classic oozes charm. Excellent selection of local beers on tap, only a few snacks available to eat. Very popular with locals as well as tourists. Don't miss!

Busy old art nouveau bar with really tasty fresh omelettes and their own fruit beers, full of locals and definitely worth a trip.

My No 1 place for "after-dinner" drinks with work colleagues and friends. The "brown bar" feel and the efficient service always comes out a winner! Also suitable for extended discussions over a couple (or more!) of beers as the place is cosy with Belgian old...More

One of the lain attractions in Brussels in my eyes. Old fashioned café that is worth the visit! Dream away in this particular historical centre.
