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

Beautiful (Real) Shabby Chic Bar that gets busy but don't worry they know the serious drinkers, from the sippers, so you will not have an empty glass. Comprehensive Menu of Brussels Beers here and once you have sampled enough it's easy peasy to get a Taxi outside.

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 school charm. Not to be missed!

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.

A great place for a pint of beer or a glass of wine in the after work hours. Visited La Mort Subite while being in Brussels for a work trip and loved the quiet yet cozy vibe of the place. The staff is really friendly and if you have the chance to sit by the window you'd instantly feel as... More

An excellent pub in the heart of Brussels in Jugendstil/Art Nouveau style. A great ambiance, amiable service. I had s small dish (salad) with bread (good quality) and some lovely beers.

We came here just especially for the drinks. The building itself has very nice interior decorations and design so it was a perfect place to sit down, relax and enjoy a pint (or two) of local Belgian beer as well as the calm and peaceful atmosphere.

I came back as I knew this was a bar and beer lovers paradise, as I first came on a Tuesday when recent events in Brussels really did dampen spirits for a while. Today is a Thursday a few months on at the end of another business trip and it's bouncing, and the staff are as friendly and helpful as... More
