Just a step away from the Manneken Pis you can find this relaxed bar, the “travellers club”. This is the place where I met Sanne and Bart (founders of Spotted by Locals): it felt like the most appropriate place to go to with enthusiastic travellers.
What fascinates me is its laid back atmosphere with soft music and comfortable armchairs. I always enjoy some of their teas of the world together with a piece of the dessert of the day, which normally corresponds to chocolate cake with whipped cream for me.
While you are there you can read travel magazines and travel books (unfortunately mainly in French or Dutch), but you can also have a look at the always changing photo exhibitions or check out the bookstore.
A couple of evenings a week they also have conferences, diaporamas, concerts or movies (in French or English or Italian,..). Every time I get out after one of them, I feel like setting off for a new travel adventure!
