Mappa Mundo is a great bar we always make a point of visiting on any holiday to Brussels we take,not only is it in the wonderful St Gery District so it's always packed but the beers served here are just fantastic.
I love the look of this place,it's a bar with great decor and furnishings,it has an Irish pub style layout,it's got a long serving bar and plenty of seating options spread throughout this bar and outside looking out onto the busy and bustling streets around this wonderful bar.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Wednesday night and this bar was packed,we very luckily managed to get served quickly were we ordered Vedett IPA and these beers were served in tip top condition,we just chilled out and soaked up the great vibe in this superb bar .
Our beer was outstandingly good,a very light and hoppy beer and very easy to drink indeed.
The vibe in here was great and considering it was midweek this bar was rammed.
We really enjoyed our beers in here before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time.
Mappa Mundi is really easy to locate on Rue Du Pont De La Carpe in the St Gery District in an area teeming with pubs,bars and restaurants and some amazing architecture and a major tourist destination.
Opening hours are;
Monday to Wednesday,Midday till 1.30am.
Thursday,Midday till 2.30am.
Friday & Saturday,Midday till 3.30am.
Sunday,Midday till 1 30am.
A great bar and well worth checking out.

I know the bar since it opened and over 10 years ago, I had great fun there with friends. I came back the other night on the eve of Valentine Night for an "aperitif" and choose one of their supposed Best Drink: a Caipirinha. My husband took a Gin Tonic. Bill 20 €. Not a peanut to go along. The caipirinha was served in a mini glass flooded with ice, with a dry slice of lime. I had literally 2 sips before it was empty! The perfect rip off and we had to drink outside because it stinks so awfully inside. The heather outside doesn't work properly and we left less than 15 minutes later, frozen, disgusted, and surely not drunk, as our glasses was so small and so low in alcohol, that being even slightly drunk would have been impossible. Try other bar in front... but escape this one.

Went in with a friend for a drink after dinner, the restaurant/bar is spread over two floors with the main bar area upstairs, very cosy atmosphere and not too loud though tables are a little crowded, good choice of bottled beers with some other options though not many, had a nice fruit beer but their rose wine was not so good, prices were reasonable

We've been in the Christmas market walking around the square hoping we can find some warm place where we can taste some great Belgian beer. Then we found this place. Sit upstairs where I could see the market and the Christmas lights. It was just perfect.
The bartender guy was kind, only the music was a little bit loud, but it was ok.

We saw the bar and decided to go there. The music was very nice, there is a lots of people, especially young. The drinks were good. Really recommend that place.
