Belgian bars are often known for serving fresh, delicious, locally brewed beers you cannot find elsewhere. In Brussels, there are also quirky bars popular among tourists and locals for their cute or creepy decorations, a record-breaking long list of drinks or lovely, furry staff. Read on to find out where to experience the most bizarre joints in Brussels.
While Delirium has broken the Guinness record for the largest number of beers, Green Lab, the bar with the largest number of gins in Belgium, is another record breaking spot. In this new bar located in the posh Louise area, you will find young couples and friends sipping huge glasses of gin and tonics garnished with fresh cucumber slices, rose petals, and Belgian specialties such as chocolate and endives. Besides more than 200 kinds of gins, the bar also serves a wide selection of beers and spirits, so there’s something for everyone. As its name suggest, the bar is lit up by green neon lights in an industrial decor featuring vintage music instruments, wooden tables and steel chairs on first floor. If you’re looking for an intimate space, head upstairs and settle in a comfy sofa next to the window looking down the busy crossroad. Enjoy your drink and watch the world go by, inside and outside.
