Welcome to the Café Belgia, a Brussels institution. Having an apperitif on the terrace, eating brunch or spending the night in the boat, anything is possible

  • Meet the locals
  • The Belga friendly version
  • Flagey, a cultural neighbourhood

The Café Belga is one of the most famous and most visited bars in Brussels

Situated opposite the Ixelles lakes and place Flagey, you can see all walks of Brussels life: Students, party people, employees, bohemians, pensioners... it's a cosmopolitan place perfect for taking long chats among friends.

The cafe's snack menu means it's also possible to have a bite to eat.

On the terrace or for a concert

The Belga, as it's known, has one of the biggest terraces in Brussels and is lucky enough to be right beside the beautiful Ixelles lakes. The setting is one of the quietest around and perfect for Sunday brunch.

This is in stark contrast with its evenings, however: concerts or DJ indoors and a cacophony of chatter outside. Sunday nights are dedicated to jazz concerts with "Jazz on Sunday".

The Flagey boat.

The Belga is housed in a 1930s Art Deco-style building which used to be the head quarters for a national radio station. Its unique shape lead to it being nicknamed 'the boat'.

The Flagey district is still bustling with cultural activities: cinema, theatre, concerts...

A large traditional old cafe, but with a young and vibrant vibe. It's happy, chatty and trendy with out being pretentious. That's what cafe Belga is all about.
