Was shown thus place by our greeter Paul. Fantastic looking cool shabby chic bar with a great atmosphere the service was good with the chatty waitress, free chocolate with the coffee was nice, great choice of beers. Only reason I gave a 4 and not a 5 was because I ordered a bag of crisps / chips. At 2. 30... More

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!

They have a big beer selection (Who doesnt in Belgium) and its an interesting pub but all beers are over 5e each on draft for the smallest quantity. No wifi (Really in this day and age?) Head to Delirium for better prices and house beers and free wifi.

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!

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.
