in the historic heart of the Old Brussels, just a few
steps awaya from the legendary Gran-Place.... The house
of "Toone", built in 1696, behind its twin
arches, is the home to the famous theatre of traditional
marionettes, unique in Europe... Excellent choice of
beers ! Don't miss it !!!

This is not a typical Brussels cafe but it is very original...
Drink a beer a glass in a form of skull.. while listening
to the 5th symphony of Mozart... Customers are mainly
tourists, students, Goths and horror fans. It's located
at 20 meters of the Grand Place...

Eccentric bar near the Mannekin Pis that looks like
a junk shop from the outside. It looks like one inside,
too: every surface, including the ceiling, is covered
in old books, pictures and LPs. There are fruit wines
and coktails. Also enjoy the french music played there...
No english music !!!
la mort subite
- our rating (4/5)
One of the city's most famous cafés is a la Mort
Subite (7, rue des Montagnes-aux-Herbes Potageres).The
name, which means "sudden death" in English,
comes from a dice game that was popular around 1910...
Excellent place !!!
our rating (5/5)
name means `puppet cellar' and the theme is Brussels
in general and puppets in particular. Since it is situated
right opposite the Manneken Pis, this is perhaps not
surprising. There are puppets all over the place with
other objets relating to Brussels folklore. Big choice
of beers too...

A long old bar in the centre of town that has been given
a makeover of distressed paint and plasterwork, lanterns
on the tables, and art (for sale) on the walls.
narrow, modern bar in Ixelles with art on the walls and
two pinball machines at the entrance. It is very a crowded
cafe in the evenings...
Don't even think of going to L'Atelier if you want peace
or sophistication: it's right next to the university in
Ixelles and is invariably crammed with beery students, playing
pinball and talking about life, alcohol and everything.
The combination of popularity and bureaucracy has somewhat
tarnished the appeal and originality of Sud, but it remains
an excellent bar/club all the same.
bar (and café), run by the owners of Pp Café,
Bonsoir Clara and Kasbah, with a big, posy terrace, a long
list of beers and cocktails, and food.
Fairly sophisticated bar in an excellent street for drinking.
Johnny (post-kitsch club)
Anti fashion club walking on the cheesy line (Polnareff,
Cloclo, Khaled, Sheila, Bobbie Brown, Aretha Franklin,...)
