Elsene for the Flemish, Ixelles for the Walloons, this hyperlocal yet international neighbourhood shows a part of the capital that is, in some parts, still unexplored by the masses of tourists. Multicultural, bilingual and very, very Brussels, Ixelles is a fantastic neighbourhood to discover. So move away from the beaten tourist path, and imagine yourself a local, with a beer in your hand, of course.
True to its name, Le Bar d’Ixelles can be found at the centre of the Ixelles neighbourhood near the cemetery, close to the Free University of Brussels. But don’t think that means it’s dead quiet, Le Bar d’Ixelles organises theme nights, concerts and nights with live DJs.
Some bars are easily found in city centres, while others are hidden gems in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Le Tavernier obviously belongs in the second category. The heated outdoor terrace is a great place to sit at any season, and the many drink options and live concerts will make you want to stay longer. If live music isn’t for you, you can relax on the comfortable sofas of the first floor and watch a sports game on the big screen with the other Brussels residents.
