2017 celebration in Brussels

This we year we recommend the bar Brewdog for IBD celebrations. 

Housed in the original 1950s headquarters of the former national Belgian airline Sabena, it has a large terrace with views across the central city skyline to the Hotel de Ville – perfect for admiring a summer sunset. The design and layout of the bar take advantage of the curved steel staircase and high ceilings of the original period architecture to create a venue that is stylish, modern, open and friendly. It is comfortably laid out; this is where the airline’s VIPs used to wait before catching a train to the airport. There are private rooms to book for functions and the upstairs lounge can also be reserved for larger parties.

The bar has a range of more than 20 different beers on tap, both from Brewdog’s own range of signature beers, such as Punk IPA and Dead Pony Club, and guest draught beers from smaller breweries including many Belgian masterpieces. The bar also sells an incredible range of bottled artisan beers, and serves good quality unpretentious food and snacks to match the flavours of the many beers on offer; I can recommend the “Brewdog BXL Burger” which uses beef prepared with “Jack Hammer” beer.
