It is a cold and rainy afternoon in Brussels; you don’t want to stay at home but the idea of going to the cinema or grabbing a beer for the millionth time is equally unappealing. What about challenging your friends to playing a few board games in a comfortable café or pub? Switch up your plans and head out to these Brussels hotspots to spend your evening with friends, board games and drinks.
Just around the corner from the lively Sainte Catherine’s square, is a 19th-century industrial building, formerly part of the Brussels harbor, which has been recently been transformed into a bar. Au Bassin Brussels is the perfect place to explore new worlds – thanks to its vast selection of travel books – or an opportunity to challenge your friends with one of the many board games piled high on its shelves. Get lost in a great read or play some games indoors under the café’s charming terrace with a stained glass rooftop. Au Bassin is definitely an address to keep in mind where you are looking for a place to handle the rainy day blues.
