Un des plus beaux ?tablissements de la ville dans sa conception et son architecture. Un bar long de 15 m?tres en bois, des fauteuils en cuir ultra confortables. On acc?de ? l'?tage par deux escaliers en colima?on. Devant nous, une somptueuse biblioth?que en bois laqu? autour de laquelle de gros canap?s en cuir vous permettent de bouquiner en buvant un caf?. Le soir, l'ambiance est plus ? la f?te avec un DJ et de jolies filles au bar.
Thursday - Sunday
Very luxury location & people. French-house.
DJs residents : Olivier Gosseries, Erick, N?mio et Milo. Ouvert le Vendredi, le Samedi et le Dimanche.
Sans doute le plus beau club de Bruxelles, tant dans la decoration que dans la population qui frequente la bo?te. Un vaste espace tendance neo coloniale o? se m?lent les fauteuils pourpres style Louis XVI, les grands rideaux rouges et les colonnes de marbre. Une logistique et des equipements derniers cris (eclairages perfectionnes, pistes de danse modulables par niveaux, bars rotatifs?) au service du bien-etre et de la fete, bref une insolente reussite. Au fur et ? mesure que la boete se remplit, les murs avancent pour une occupation de l'espace maximale. Si vous pouvez, allez faire un tour dans le carre V.I.P, exceptionnel dans son architecture. La musique, comme dans la plupart des lieux branch?s, est axee sur la house, mais une house tres agreable ? l'oreille. Seul petit bemol, l'entree. Elle est difficile sans etre impossible. Les portiers sont intransigeants, mais le look "pantalon sur les hanches, hauts moulants, bandeaux sur la tete" passe plut?t bien. Pour ne prendre aucun risque optez quand meme pour le pantalon chemise.
Les portiers ont vraiment le controle de l'etablissement, donc pas de negociation possible. Passez la porte, ce n'est que du bonheur. Une clientele hype, sans chichi, et les plus belles filles de Bruxelles? Le Dimanche, soiree Cabaret, la soir?e Gay la plus courue de la ville, ambiance garantie. Entr?e gratuite entre 22 heures et 23 heures avec un open bar.
Don't come earlier than 0:30 after midnight or there will be nobody...
This is definitely one of my favorite places in Brussels!
Suddenly around 01:00 people come from everywhere! The dancefloor gets filled and the atmosphere is great.
You get into the mood, and before you know it you are dancing, even when you don't like to dance ;)
This is mostly thanks to Belgium's best djs that work there: DJ Geoffroy & DJ Raoul.
They play a smooth mix of deephouse / disco / funk / soul / latin / afrobeats, ...
A very hip & funky place.

The first floor is Techno (futuristic electronic music). The second floor is deephouse/funky house (close to disco) served by belgium's best dedicated DJ Raoul!!!
Smartbar Chicago (August 2002): ?Belgium?s finest export since Stella Artois!?
1996 was the year that Raoul?s DJ career stepped into the next level when he was offered a residency at ?Food?, nowadays Belgium?s premium house night with a weekly spot at the Motion Room in the Fuse Club in Brussels called ?Food in Motion? and also doing parties all over the country and abroad. Numerous star DJ?s coming from all over the world joined Raoul and the other residents Geoffroy and Regis to play at a Food night and amongst these Derrick Carter, Kenny Hawkes and DJ Sneak count in Food as one of their favorite clubs worldwide.
Besides being a very skilled and widely appreciated DJ, Raoul is also very busy producing and remixing tracks for more than 7 years now.
Dress Code: Modern,hip,...like you want
Mixed cultures and sometimes extravagant people. Definitely the most hip place in Brussels at the moment!
Since 2003, the kiosk in the centre of the Royal Park hosts a Milonga (Tango Ball) every 1st and 3rd saturday from June to September (17h00-23h30).
Come there to listen to tango music, look at the dancers or dance yourself.
Fifth edition of the International Festival of Oriental (middle eastern) Dances.
This festival organised workshops (4,5,6th March) and a show on March 5th, in Residence Palace Theatre (155 rue de la Loi 1040 Brussels).
IFOD 2004 show was on March 6th, and IFOD 2003 show was on April 26th, in Culture Centrum of Woluwe St Pierre (93 Av Ch Thielemans 1150 Brussels).
Contact Nuriyya for the next one (ICODAC asbl, non profit organisation).
Dress Code: Good glasses (we sat far from the scene!).
Brussels has many bars all over this city...the bars stay open until 5 am and the clubs open at 2 am...for people who like to go clubbing I would say stay away from them because it cost an arm and a leg to drink in the club.
Great prices on strong beer as far as being in the Eu.
I would tell everyone in the world to spend time here when it is warm out, most laid back city I have ever been to.
This is all located in the same area as my other tips.
Dress Code: no dress code any where I went!
the always trendy nightspot surviving all the hypes with pumping sounds which make you grind all night long | UPDATE 2004: seems to have lost a little of that and is now a bit underground...
Dress Code: no sneakers, rather dressy
During the day, Le Corbeau plays out graciously as one of the oldest brasseries in town, where you can have a bite and a cup a coffee during your shopping spree. Nice and quiet, very cosy, the occasional wobbly table the only tale tell sign of the cafe's other side.
Now, THAT is something quiet different. At night, Le Corbeau is probably the best place in Brussels to immerse yourself in some seriously young, swinging (on the tables) and not very sober (thanks to the meter-long beers) crowd.
Be warned, this place has the potential to make you look old; altho it certainly will make you FEEL young!
And be early (before 12) or you won't be able to get in.
PS They do occasionally get into the French music, but it's never long-lasting... so just have a rest and charge on!
Dress Code: Comfy and light. It gets hot in there!
This is the place we usually choose when we all go out to dance on thursday night.
An Irish pub full of people working at the European Institutions ! Quite difficult to dance though, because it is quite crowded... but nice :-)
Nice decoration inside where they used beams and put wine boxes planks on the ceiling. You'll find 2 teraces outside, if you need some fresh air.
Open from 6.45 till 1am during the week, and until 3 am on the week-ends.
Dress Code: No dress code required, it is mainly a bar
