Uccle is famous for many things, but a thriving nightlife is not one of them. However, it is for that exact reason that Uccle’s bar scene is worth taking a closer look at, as many wonderful places have been overlooked in favor of hipper, younger Brussels neighborhoods such as St. Gilles or Ixelles.
One of Uccle’s places to see and be seen, La Terasse de l’Hippodrome is a great option during the summer months as it has a massive swimming pool installed on the deck. Although there is a dress code, it is still a great option for families as the kids can use up their energy in the pool while the adults relax on the terrace. Drinks can be had from midday onwards until late.

Fairly decently priced and featuring an enticing happy hour, Barabar is well known in Uccle amongst the later crowds for its cocktails and jovial atmosphere. However, it can get quite packed on the weekends, but if you’re in search of a good party, Barabar is a solid contender.

A great café-cultural meeting space concept, l’Harmonium is dedicated to fostering a community spirit and nurturing creativity. The drinks are served by the two enthusiastic owners, and at any given time, you can admire an art exposition or join a workshop taking place at the bar.
