Gay bar in the heart of Brussels’ gay street, popular with bears, friends and admirers.

Although small inside, this bar is very popular. Most guests will drink outside (there’s little room inside), but the atmosphere is great. Colourful ceilings and walls add to the fun atmosphere.

On the weekend, there’s usually a DJ who plays a mixture of club classics and pop music. Give him a wink and he’ll play your favorite tune, too.

The oldest gay bar in Brussels. We love the ‘pub feel’ here – it’s cosy, friendly, and the beer selection is superb. Ask the barman for his recommendations if you’re not sure what to try.

La Reserve has a great sound system, and the music is upbeat and loud, especially on weekends! Attracts a more mature crowd.

Le Belgica has become a Brussels gay institution, with excellent music by a live DJ, cute guys behind the bar and cheap drinks.

A great hangout for post-dinner or pre-clubbing. You’ll find most people socialising outside, although the glitter balls inside make for the perfect dance floor.

Fun, popular weekend gay bar with drag shows, hosted by the one and only Maman and her cast of fabulous performers.

It’s a tight space and always crowded, so best to arrive early if you want to see the show. To enter, knock on the door and wait to be called in. Usually men only, depending on the mood of the bouncer.

Whilst the show takes place, the bar will be closed (they use the bar to perform). There is a bar upstairs – great for taking photos with all the girls! Free entry.
