List View
Map View
Belgium is home to hundreds of beer varieties, and you can sample many of them in Brussels' bars and cafés. The summer is the perfect time to enjoy a crisp blond beer on a sunny terrace. In winter warm up with a hearty Trappist beer. But beer isn’t the only tipple of choice in the city. With cozy caves and trendy wine bars, wine lovers are well represented. And don’t forget to indulge in the most decadent hot chocolate of your life at one of Brussels' many chocolatiers. Santé!

Boulevard de la Woluwe 28, 1150 Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, Belgium
Brussels’ largest gourmet supermarket, Rob, is well worth the trip outside the city centre for dedicated foodies. This market is filled with all of the finest grocery items from around Europe. This is where locals go to buy hard-to-find...

Avenue Emile De Mot 19, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
Wine bars are a recent phenomenon in Brussels but in the past few years, they have been popping up around town like mushrooms after the rain. Back in those pre-wine bar days, I dreamed someone would open my perfect wine bar in the city centre and,...

Rue Haute 198, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
On the bustling Rue Haute, in the heart of Brussels Marolles district, is Le Wine Bar. Located in a typical 17th century house, as the name suggests the main feature is wine, but that is certainly not all. The menu is short and heavy on meat...

The Delirium Café in Brussels is nothing less than a pilgrimage for beer aficionados. Try mentioning a place with over 2000 different options, and see how starry their eyes will get. This bar is located right in the heart of Brussels, a stone...

Rue Montagne aux Herbes Potagères 7, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
One of my favorite places to grab a beer and a snack is a la Mort Subite. Although it does become touristy, it is a civilized class of tourists who like to relax and grab a quiet beer and something to eat, unlike the more popular Delirium Cafe....

Rue Gheude 56, 1070 Anderlecht, Belgium
No trip to Belgium is complete without experiencing the Belgian beer culture. The best place in Brussels to take a look at beer history is the Cantillon Brewery. Even as a non beer drinker, it’s a fascinating place to visit. One of the things that...

Chaussée de Charleroi 43, 1060 Saint-Gilles, Belgium
It’s easy to find European wines in Brussels. In fact, any decent-sized grocery store will have a good selection. But if you’re looking for a great ‘new world’ wine or something from a lesser known wine region, there’s only one shop to visit – Mig...

Grand Place 1, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
Besides the amazing food and drinks that you can enjoy in many Belgian restaurants, the decorations are fascinating too. Some of them are simply awesome—like the Roy D'Espagne in Grand Place, Brussels. I had some great mussels in a fabulous...

Rue de l'Enseignement 57, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium

Quai aux Briques 74, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
The Via Via Travellers Cafe is more than just a pub. During the day, you can enjoy a coffee under the glass-roofed atrium and, at night, it’s a great place to sample Belgian beer, particularly the local, Brussels “Zinnebir.” But Via Via is also...

Chaussée de Waterloo 1469, 1180 Uccle, Belgium
Chai & Bar perfectly combines two of my favourite things—wine and food. This wine shop sprang onto the Brussels scene in the striking Tour and Taxis building a few years ago. Recently, they moved to Uccle in a prime spot on the Chaussée de...

Despite being a modern capital city, Brussels is still very much in touch which its historic past. Festivals, parades, architecture and traditions all hint at times gone by. One fascinating tradition is still active in Brussels and you can see it...
