A mythical place where you plunge back into time, carried on the sounds and lyrics of French chanson in an interior overloaded with objects and paintings with reminders of singers and former Belgian royalty. The place breathes some nostalgia to a lost era, and at the same time keeps it alive inside its walls. Drinks are ok and normally priced,... More

Just for having a pre-dinner drink it's very nice. Don't ask for coffee or tea, they don't have. But the house drink is very nice. Sitting all next to each other there isn't any privacy but it's very cosy and nice. I'll visit it the next time again just for spending some time in a nice environment with nice music

I went with local friends. This bar is just magical, It is like a Harry Potter book house. If you visit Brussels you have to go. Well... do not get push back by the friendly owner (not so nice, I guess this gives more scene to the place). Inside there is much fun and waiters are very nice.

Very special place, unique atmosphere, and though I can imagine that not everyone will love it I think that it's definitely worth a try. Fruit wine is recommended!

Great little spot, we just wandered in off the street and walked into a gem. Could not recommend this highly enough, whether it is a first date or just chilling with friends by far my favorite little spot in brussels.

If you wanna discover smtg in between strangeness, cosiness and French atmosphere dont ask yourself twice. The goupil le fol will satisfy your curiousity. Dark, ancient and bric a brac place where you can enjoy different aroma liqueurs. Unfortunately not the best place for a belgium beer (poor choice) but hey, you wobt regret your venue there anyway!!

A place like no other. With vinyls hanging on the ceiling and St. Maries trapped in bird cages, the atmosphere is fantastic. A must visit for anyone looking to have a drink in a unique environment.
