L’Athénée – Warm and chill atmosphere

Amongst the many bars you can find in Brussels you have the choice to go to a trendy place that everyone “loves” or “loves to hate”. 

You will also probably end up in one of those small, chill, “brown” bars which seem to have no style but is just the place to be for a crowd full of students from the cinema school on the other side of the street, artsy people and activists and not to mention those who fit nowhere else.

In your discoveries of Brussels, you’ll soon enough hear of the “Saint Boniface area” and it refers to the many places to eat or have a drink, situated just in front of the Church.

L’Athénée is located just behind the Church… left alone in a street which makes it more complicated for tourists to find!

When the weather is good, they have a huge colourful terrace. During the long winter’s nights, everyone is packed inside, with good music, a beer or a tea…

Have a seat at any table even if it’s full. Smile and start a conversation… And take your time: you’ll probably make some new friends with whom you’ll talk till the end of the night…
