Nice grungy bruin cafe with a full selection of regular Belgian beers and even a few geuzes which is nice. Settled for an average priced Orval. Bar was full of middle aged single ladies, so all you loner beer geeks take note of that. Service was efficient but not beer oriented. Average place, probably won’t ever go back.

Visited in December 2012 during an open blues jam. Ended up taking part in it. Felt like a great place with superb ambiance. The next time I am in Brussels, I’m definitely going there again. It feels very "American" so to speak, and the staff all speak English, although I spoke with them in French. Definitely somewhere to go, especially during performances.

Another one of those places that we visited thanks to Joe Stange’s great ’Around Brussels in 80 Beers’ book, visited here Fri 23rd March 2012. Beer choice was ok, but clearly there are those places with a much bigger list. I think I settled on an Orval as did Loz. We did not stay here too long as we were booked into the Kokobo Ethiopian restaurant (excellent btw) I quite liked Cafe Bizon and would happily venture in again if in the area, I seem to recall that it is is quite close to Booze & Blues.
