Going out in Brussels

Hi there,

Which are your 10 favorite places to go out in Brussels?

Which places would you recommend to newcomers? (restaurants, pubs, discos, theaters, cinemas, concert halls...)


#1: Mappa Mundo, a bar near Bourse
#2: Delerium, a beer-bar in the restaurant district/opposite Janneke pis
#3: don't know the name but its great for lunch! @ the corner of Galerie de la Reine and Rue d'Arenberg

There are much more great places but these are my definite top 3!

La Morte Subite is also a great place!

Delirium bar in Brussels is amazing, i cant give you the specifics but its near the fish resteraunts of the grand place!!

1. Bonnefois
2. Cafe Central
3. Midi
4. Jazzete
5. the restos near Chatelain

Mirano & Delirium.

Again, on (Eurodatum, directory of EU links),

there is a section EU Networking where you will find a complete list of Brussels bars/pubs where you can meet eurostagiaires, eurocrates and eurolobbyists! The addresses are there as well.

Typical Brussel/belgian bar near the Grand-Place and the Bourse!!! Entrance is hard to find but it's worth putting some effort if you wanna enjoy a typical brussels brew!! LA BECASSE (
Delirium café is also a great place ( They have (almost) everything Belgium makes! Watch out for the prices on Live Music nights... (10% more I think).
Mappa Mundo is also a nice place for later in the night!
For food, go for the neighbourhood between Madou (US Embassy) & Rue Royale! Nice Pasta bars & little restaurants.

L'archiduc at the bourse

Havana bar

Any hard rock/heavy metal scene in brussels?? Bars, discos, shops? Thanks!

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for but La Cercuil bar off Grand Place had that vibe. It's a little bit over the top in terms of goth paraphanalia (e.g. coffins for tables) but good spot and people were a bit of banter! It's on heringstraat (I think!)

Hey Kaly79

In fact there is a heavy metal bar in Brussels CBD called Rock Classic bar, 55 Kolenmarkt .
Last week it had Metallica S&M and Sytem of a Down music....and best of all it closes at 6am!!

For rugby, I would adivce "Six Nations pub"
