“Super place for drinks or meals until late. Don't miss the Halles Saint-Géry !”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

A couple of years ago, this part of the city was almost abandonned.
Since about 10 to 15 years considerable efforts have been made to give a new impulse it.
The first major step was the refurbishing and modernisation of the Halles Saint-Géry in the middle of the square.
It is now often used for exhibitions and performances of at least good quality.
Around the Halles, there are now many cafés, bars and small restaurants with terrasses in summer.
The atmosphere is relaxed and artisitc.
Very pleasant place to go !

“Hanging out”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

It's absolutely wonderful to hang out on Place St. Gery, you have all different bars in 1 place, next to all the Asiatic restaurants. The place to watch people... Downside: All the bars are closed by 3 AM.

“Trendy drinking, eating and posing place for young minded people”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

This is like the anti-christ of Sablon, young trendy people free and happy to interact with anybody irrespective of race, creed or religion. This started the resurgence of downtown Brussels years ago and now serves as the link between the various very good Asian (that's oriental to non US anglophiles) restos to the north and east of St. Gery. Don't miss the central building which used to be the city's meat market which now hosts an amazingly relaxing bar / eatery surrounded by an ever changing exhibit showing everything from pictures of spiders to the latest archeological findings from around Brussels.

Sit down, take off your coat, order a fresh mint tea, lean back and look up at the amazing structure as you unwind....
