La Canne en Ville is a small restaurant located in an old butcher’s. The menu is limited but lists a couple of great dishes (who needs a menu that reads like a book anyway). I made my reservations via mytable.com
Located just off Place Fernand Cocq, Sounds Jazz Club is the place to be in the area if you’re after live music. The small stage has been the scene for some great jazz performers since it opened in 1986. But wether there’s a big name lined up or not, the vibe is always right.
