You haven’t seen anything like this. Not in a long time anyway. This downtown bistro sets out to recreate the legendary mood of 1960s Brussels with old French album covers decorating the walls.
The food is typical Belgian comfort food like sausage with stoemp and oiseaux sans tête à l’ardennaise. The beers are interesting craft brews from small breweries. And the music is nostalgic French chanson.
Go there on a Thursday to catch an old-style thé dansant or squeeze in on a Friday night for a wild time that could easily end with everyone dancing on the tables.
