5. Brussels: Private Beers, Bars, and Live Music Tour by Night
Join a friendly local guide for an authentic experience of Brussels after dark. Explore the ultra-trendy Quai aux Briques neighborhood, stopping off at some of the city’s best breweries and bars along the way. Enjoy a night out the way you like it – whether it’s listening to live music, sampling beer at a brewery, or sipping wine at a rooftop bar. Be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Meet your guide at the Quai aux Briques, a popular hub of relaxed nightlife stretching along the length of a rectangular pool. There you can listen to live music and enjoy drinks and dancing at Madame Moustache. Alternatively, visit Au Bassin, a trendy brewery where you can enjoy local beers (Belgium has over 1,100 original brews) in an old port warehouse. Stroll through the vibrant city at night, peering into crowded venues loved by locals as you make your way to the Grand Place in the city center. Once there, see attractions such as the King's House as well as opulent guildhalls. Head to a typical pub such as Poechenellekelder - where you can sip a cold one with a few traditional bar snacks, or visit L'Archiduc - an 80-year-old Art Deco-style cocktail bar with its own art gallery. If you still have time to kill, end your night at one of Brussels’ relaxed rooftop bars, with the Play Label Rooftop highly recommended.
