Bar, Cafe, Belgian, Coffee
A typical old-style Belgian bar, Chez Bernard is one of these cafés that are simply a place where you can enjoy an afternoon drinking beers and eating fries from Maison Antoine
on the square. The humble bar is perfect for a casual date or after-work drinks without hassle or chichi.

Bar, Wine Bar, Wine, Mediterranean, $$$
is not technically in Etterbeek but in 1000 Brussels, but it is so close to Etterbeek that we still felt it totally worth making our list. With the success of its older brother in Ixelles, Winery Schuman is another great address for all the wine lovers out there. The place is split between a wine bar and a wine shop and offers a great variety of food to nibble on while enjoying a glass.

is the perfect illustration of that love. This cute little bar is a great place to meet your friends before heading to a club, but the atmosphere is so pleasant that you might forget that plan and choose to spend the night here instead.
