First, there was TGIF – Thank God It’s Friday. Then, there was FRUNCH. Every Fridays from mid/end April until end-August, locals and tourists gather in the beautiful neoclassical BIP courtyard on the iconic Place Royale (Mont des Arts/Kunstberg) for a cool Friday Lunch (FRUNCH!). In this festive atmosphere, you’ll find a few food trucks (3-4, usually different ones), a bar, live music (DJs), sun loungers, foosball tables, beautiful people and hopefully the sun! I work close by and like to hang out at Frunch with some friends/colleagues to enjoy the – short – summer months. And since it’s socially accepted to have a drink at lunchtime in Belgium (I love you Europe), why not enjoy a Lillet cocktail – FRUNCH’s “signature” drink? My motto is work hard, play hard, and Frunch is.
Whether you are relaxing from your sightseeing or enjoying some fresh air during a day at the office, Frunch is a great place to hang out for an hour or so to welcome the beloved weekend in style. Apparently, this coolness concept will for the first season in 5 seasons extend to once a month Thursday after work drinks, and maybe even a Winter Frunch (brrr). So stay tuned, and Frunchaway!
