Nightlife in Brussels

Belgians like bars that turn into discos that also serve food, such as the trendy cafés in the Châtelain and Dansaert areas. Brussels won't disappoint beer fans, with over 450 home-grown varieties. Try La Fleur en Papier Doré for Belgium 'gueuze' beer or Goupil le Fol for fruit liqueurs, both in the Bourse district. Club-goers can move on to techno beats or Latin rhythms also in the Bourse. Most bars close at 2am; clubs stay open until dawn.
