The Top Bars Around Avenue Louise, Brussels

Updated: 9 February 2017
In the southern part of Brussels, there is a thoroughfare named after the King Leopold II’s eldest daughter, which crosses one of the most expensive and elegant quarters in the capital. We are talking about Avenue Louise, where the city meets the Ixelles and Saint-Gille communes. Besides hosting a number of embassies and ambassadors’ residences, prestigious law firms and expensive boutique hotels, this area also offers a wide range of possibilities for those looking for a good bar to meet friends (or a romantic tête-à-tête).

Gazzetta – Caffé & Deli

If you’re looking for a proper Italian place to savor antipasti and drinks, Gazzetta is highly recommended. Situated nearby the Place Stephanie, Gazzetta offers a great selection of food (look out for the homemade pasta) and drinks within a welcoming environment.

Gazzetta – Caffé & Deli, Rue de la Longue Haie 12, 1050 Brussels, Belgium, +32 2 513 92 13

Loui Bar

In such a polished area, one should visit this elegant hotel bar. Located in the sumptuous Steigenberger Wiltcher Hotel, Loui Bar serves as a great environment for both a romantic evening or an elegant night out. Appreciate a fine spirit, an attentively crafted cocktail or a wide selection of teas and coffees, all of which earned Loui Bar Europe’s Best Hotel Bar by Prix Villégiature.

Loui Bar, Avenue Louise 71, 1050 Brussels, Belgium, +32 2 542 48 37

Le Petit Canon

This corner bar just halfway between Louise and Flagey is a true institution of the area. Guests can treat themselves to a crisp glass of wine along with delicious and varied tapas in a clean minimal-chic environment or, depending on the weather, outside on a beautiful terrace.

Le Petit Canon, Rue de Hennin 98, 1050 Brussels, Belgium, +32 2 640 38 34

Callens Café

Just behind the lovely Parc de l’Abbaye de la Cambre in Ixelles lies one of the trendier bars in the area. Callens Café, with its first-choice booze and astonishing décor, is highly recommended.

Green Lab

The Green Lab serves one of the most impressive lists of gins, absinthe, beers and cocktails in town. Come and taste them in an out-of-the-ordinary steampunk-styled cocktail bar illuminated by green neons lights.
