Thanks in advance

Belga Queen is the odd one out: it isn't a bar, but a restaurant, and an expensive one at that.. in my opinion not at all what you want given the other places mentioned.

You don't mention La Bécasse or A L'Imaige de Nostre Daime (beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/4996/…) both of which are not far from Delirium.

I thought Le Cercueil had closed but it seems it opened up again, this is definitely up-to-date as it shows the Ultieme Hallucinatie as closed and that was recent. It's in French but you can see which are the 10 most popular bars according to whoever provided the ratings: http://www.ebru.be/Cafes/CafePage.html

Gaminari, the bar at trhe front of belgaqueen is quite good if a litle expensive it was the only place in have had unfiltered palm other then the brewery.

Another place i would add probably becasue iwent with my daughter on sunday is Cafe Belga in place flagey.

It was a lot of fun in a relaxed kind of way on sunday and it has some decent draught beers and many bottles

I'd give the Greenwich a miss. It's a chess bar. Great beer, historic etc, but not where you want to hang out for a celebration, unless you like chess and beards. The others seem fine, plenty of variety. I'd also add the bars around Place st Gery, just around the corner from the Greenwich, Mappa Mundo and Roi des Belges etc.
