Entering Centro Cabraliego is like stepping into the local bar in a small village in Spain. Here, older and younger generations, families with babies, groups, solitary regulars, and different cultures all coexists in this epic place. The Centro is one of the beating hearts of the Marolles neighbourhood, and an inescapable Brussels institution.
There are many reasons that explains why I – and many people in Brussels – always end up at Centro Cabraliego: central location, the simple and traditional feel, the cheap tapas/Spanish food served in the backroom in a very festive (i.e. loud) atmosphere, the foosball table and football always playing on the TVs, but mostly because it is undeniably one of the best deal for drinks in the city. One euro for a pilsner beer, 3 euros for a gin and tonic. Beat that, anywhere else! That explains why interns and students have made Centro Cabraliego their HQ.
Everybody is welcome at Centro Cabraliego, as long as you are a friend of Spain!
