Steps from L’Athenée, STAM is a authentic Brussels bar situated on a pleasant little square, overlooked by the old, slightly battered buildings which feature in this part of Ixelles. When we are in the area, we love going there to have a beer in the evening.

Le Cercueil

Le Cercueil est la traduction française du mot anglais «coffin» et est le nom d’un des bars les plus excentriques de Bruxelles et est situé juste à côté de la Grand Place. La façade décorée d'un squelette sur un balai vous laisse déjà supposer qu’il y a quelque chose de bizarre à découvrir à l'int...

The Poet

Since the opening of The Poet, the European quarter features a new trendy restaurant. Situated within the Renaissance Hotel, this new place stands out thanks to its exceptional décor, top-quality cocktails and -of course- tasty food. It’s a versatile setting that lends itself perfectly for busines...

Bistro-bar Voisin at Chatelain

A newcomer in the Chatelain hood! As the little brother of the established restaurant Djo which focuses on dishes to share, the bistro-bar Voisin specializes in exquisite pasta dishes, hence their slogan ‘the place to pasta your time’. We quickly headed over to take a look (and a bite)!

Un brunch copieux à La Fabbrica

Situé dans l’impressionnant bâtiment Tour & Taxis, La Fabbrica est le lieu de brunch familial idéal, situé le long du canal de Bruxelles. Alors que les brunchs sont souvent très coûteux pour une quantité de nourriture relativement limitée, cela ne s’applique pas à l’abondant buffet de La Fabbrica....

The best spots to watch the Laeken Firework Spectacular

Has a new tradition started? Let's hope so! This Summer, the third edition of the Laeken Firework Spectacular (or 'Feux de Laeken' in French) is taking place next to the Atomium on the Heysel Plateau. This means that for five Fridays in a row, a spectacular show will light up the Brussels sky and let the Atomium shine! While waiting for the fireworks, you can enjoy food trucks, musical performances and other child-friendly activities.


The Brussels city hall has received a floral facelift on the occasion of Flowertime, a biennial event that alternates with the world-famous flower carpet on Grand Place. For this event, Belgian and international florists adorn the Brussels city hall with impressive floral creations. As the city...

Citizen Lights

While Brussels is having its Bright Brussels Light Festival, the commune of Schaerbeek is hosting a similar event called Citizen Lights. This festival is much smaller, but the main attraction -a giant mechanic doll- is really impressive and worth the visit. And as there are hardly no tourists arou...

Dolmens and menhirs in Wéris

Elected as one of the prettiest villages of Wallonia, Wéris is especially famous for its megalithic monuments. At 9 kilometers from Durbuy, it’s worth making a detour to Wéris to stroll through its picturesque historical center, hike through the surrounding woods or enjoy a dolmen beer.

A day at the Eau d'Heure lakes

At the end of Spring, we were invited by Wallonie Belgique Tourisme to discover ‘Wallonie – Terre d’Eau’, a touristic program that underlines the natural beauty of the southern part of the country characterized by an abundance of lakes, rivers, brooks… And rain. The theme was pretty obvious after...
