    O'Reilly's Irish Pub: Great Irish Pub in Central Brussels

    by Paul2001 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Irish pubs now are spread out throughout Europe. In fact Brussels seems to be now saturated with them. Probably one of the best I have dropped in for a pint is O'Reilly's Irish Pub in Brussels. I actually decided upon visiting this pub because they were showing a match between Arsenal and Chelsea on TV. Okay that match featured English teams and most of the patrons were in fact English but the place did its best to recreate Ireland.
    The staff here is very good as they had to be in order to serve the large number of customers. This pub is actually quite large and it was still full.

    Goupil Le Fol: Fruit cocktails, antiques, French music

    by emily.6676 Written Sep 13, 2010

    My Belgian friend told me about this bar and said it was a must when visiting Brussels. I´m glad she explained us where to find it, because we would just have walk past this place thinking it were a messy antique shop! When you enter you discover it´s a bar with a dark and eccentric look. There are old sofas everywhere, the walls are decorated with old pictures of nudes and album covers. You can enjoy old French chansons while sipping on fruit wines. There are three storeys and the higher you go, the more intimate the ambiance gets. If you are into bizarre places, don´t miss this bar!

  • Bar Buster: Belgian stand-up comedians

    by Dajorodrigo Updated Apr 23, 2010

    Bar Buster is probably the most boring bar in Belgium (probably whole Europe) when there are no stand-up comedians performing, but when they are performing this bar suddenly turns into the best place to go to in Antwerp.

    Watch out for some guy called "Brick" (I think this is the right spelling) This guy is wickedly funny.

    Dress Code: Dresscode??? HAHAHA

    Au Bon Vieux Temps
    Impasse St.Nicholas 4,off Rue Marché Aux Herbes 12
    This little bar is tucked down an alley and is really a great find. Great beers we didn't see elsewhere and not too packed.

    Cafe Bizon
    Karperbrug 7
    Fun little bar we went to twice. Friendly bartenders, good crowd. Beams on the ceiling are decorated with concert tickets and the spaghetti bolognese for 8 euros is very good.

    Delirium Cafe
    Impasse de la Fidélité, 4A
    Lots of tourists, but everyone all there for the same reason and this place is really a good time. And there are lots

    Dress Code: None.

    Café Local: Great Latin club in Antwerp

    by Valeggua Written Sep 6, 2006

    Every month Café Local in Antwerp has very good salsa parties with at least 2 good bands! They also give free workshops at the beginning of the night.
    The club has a great Cuban ambiance, there's a dancing area, a big bar area, and you can sit upstairs, I'd call it a lounge area.

    Entrance: 10 Euro

    I like specially the latino...

    by Nounours Updated Jul 13, 2006

    I like specially the latino way of life. So, during weekends, you will find me sometimes in one of the Bests Latinas Discothèques of Brussels.
    'La Grotte des Iles'
    People will find the best Latino's music untill the morning.

    But why the best places in Brussels are not belgians cafés?
    Probably because the best places all over the world are IRISH PUBS!
    So, currently, I'm going most often in 2 good Irish pubs nearby the Grand-Place.
    The O'Reilly's and the Celtica are part of the best Irish pubs in the country.
    If you want a good pint of Guiness and/or a concert, you have to go there.

    Dress Code: ... you said "dress code" !? what's that ?
    Well, as long as you're not nacked! hu!

    various: Big cities

    by Sjalen Updated Oct 13, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    No particular spot since it keeps changing, but I would say Antwerp is the best party place. Brussels, Gent (student atmosphere), Liege, Kortrijk and the Coast are not bad either. Belgium has quite a few jazz clubs in the spirit of Toots Thielemans if you like that (I do!) and Brussels is famous for its salsa clubs. In Brussels, there is of course also a huge variety of expat mingling going on.

    Dicotheek.: Dance!

    by belgianchocolate Updated Feb 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Belgium has some fine night clubs.
    Maybe you know but since new beat -
    Belgium has become among the best
    countries to pick up some dance music.
    Commercial and not so commercial.

    The discotheeks are often quit huge and
    can contain 1000 people or more.

    Every single one has it's own atmosphere
    and it hard to advice you to visit one.
    Most have an early 20 something crowd.

    Some of the most important ones.
    There are many many more.
    Take a look at the website below...

    FUSE: Techno never dies

    by babeteaser Written Nov 28, 2004

    This is THE place for techno in Belgium. Started early '90-ties and had huge success couple of years later. Ever since a must for techno lovers. The list of DJ's who visited over the last decade is impressive.

    Mirano Continental: Dirty Dancing on Saturdays

    by babeteaser Written Nov 28, 2004

    An old cinema converted into a disco; it surely has charm! Used to be THE place for Brussels BCBG public.
    Now it's a kind of underground elektro venue with a different kind of audience. The time they are changing I guess...

    Dress Code: Anything goes, if you think you'll shock think again...

    All around: Belgian Nightlife

    by bambino36 Written Nov 22, 2004

    Antwerp is the belgian city which has the best nightlife. During summer Oostende is also a very busy place. The nightlife in Brugge is also good but it's not like in Antwerp. In Brussels the nightlife is dispersed.

    e.g. "O'Reilly's" and "The Wild Geese" in Brussels: The Irish Pubs

    by Groentje Updated Sep 2, 2004

    There are many Irish pubs in Belgium (five or so in Gent, more than a dozen in Brussels), and most of them have a very good reputation. The interior is usually really nice and the music not at all disturbing. They're pretty much like any old pub in Dublin, really :-)
    As a big lover of Guinness I have visited my fair share of Irish pubs in Belgium (and elsewhere for that matter), so I'm starting to know where they can pull a decent Guinness. The one in Bowling Overpoort Gent is fantastic! The owner even has a certificate for serving one. The one in 't Hemelke in Gent is also very nice and comes quite close to my favourite. The rest is about the same everywhere (the one in the Backdoor in Gent is absolutely the worst - don't know why, but they just can't pour a good one).

    Dress Code: You are required to wear clothes, yes.

    The mighty black stuff!

    The most tasty and great delicious sorts of Beer are in Belgium, and exclusively in Antwerp, I have to mention that all my VT friends were awesome, and we drunk and drunk, Rudy and Dannie were careful to make me taste the different taste of different beers, they were all superb!
    Thanks guys you are great friends of mine!
    From now on every time I drink a beer I'll think of you and of Antwerp!
