Brasserie Verschueren

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on July 16, 2011 in Drink, Saint-Gilles |

Right in front of the church on the bustling Parvis square in Saint-Gills, you’ll find Brasserie Verschueren in a listed Art Nouveau building. The bar has got an interesting past and its very own special atmosphere.

This bar was founded in 1880 by Louis Verschueren, and used to be a clandestine meeting place during the second World War. Brasserie Verschueren still has a rebellious attitude, as they for instance refuse to serve Coca Cola (because it’s a nasty American company).

The authentic interior could do with a bit of TLC, but is charming nevertheless. Check out the old football division score board on the back wall of the bar, too.

I always order a faro to drink, or some homemade soup when I’m there for lunch. They have a rather large range of beers. Their white wine is cheap, but unfortunately not that drinkable.

11-13, Parvis de Saint-Gilles, open every day
