"LA LUNETTE (Spectacles)" Estaminets & Beers Tip by LysDor

Estaminets & Beers, Brussels: 22 reviews and 21 photos


Favorite thing: This nice estaminet is located just next to the Opéra De La Monnaie (see picture above) and along the shopping street Rue Neuve.

The Belgian revolution of 1830 started in this square "Place de la Monnaie", when opera-goers were inflamed with patriotic fervour.

It has been renovated since and has mirrors and wooden panels creating a pleasant place to sit and read history books or watch the world go by.

Watch out, however, if you order a *lunette* of beer - it's a LITRE (= 3 X 33cl of a beer of your choice) served in champagne-"coupe" glass and requires some careful thinking of how to drink its content before starting, lol!!

3 place de la Monnaie, 1000 Brussels
8am-1am Mon-Thur;
