Kosmos Bar Brussels – A taste of Plaka

Bars

Every Tuesday evening, I go to "Kosmos Bar" in Brussels, a Greek-inspired joint together with friends. True to the Greek spirit, it closes pretty late...

When the weather in Brussels turns milder, I like organising a “friends’ evening” once a week. It works like this: I tell my group of close friends that every Tuesday evening I will be drinking in a bar and all those who can and are willing simply join in. It works wonderfully! Possibly because my bar of choice is Kosmos.

This Greek-inspired joint is a corner of Plaka’s (Athens) liveliness on Place Jourdan. The bar is small, with some seating inside and bigger capacity at its tables on the terrace. But the ambience is simply great! All throughout the year it is full of a hip crowd enjoying a good beer and delicious Greek mezzes, while chatting the evening away. Of course, you will not be let down if instead of beer you ask for ouzo, tsipouro or even cocktails and whisky! And true to the Greek spirit, Cosmos is one of the last places to close down in the area, which makes the perfect spot for a nightcap!
