This elegant establishment is housed in a 17th-century building overlooking the Grand Place. At one point La Maison du Cygne was a popular cafe where in 1881 the Belgian Socialist Party was founded. Now it consists of one of the finest restaurants and bars in Brussels, where elegance, class and style are standard. There are five different rooms—the most coveted seats overlooking Grand Place. The cuisine is classic French, and the wine cellar has a permanent stock of no less than 70,000 bottles.
Café Leffe overlooks the busy Grand Sablon Square in downtown Brussels. The cafe is a popular spot to load up on delicious Italian and/or Belgian preparations along with a flavorsome and refreshing pint. The beer-dominated bar program, a nice, sunny patio which seems like it was made for people- watching, delicious food, a friendly service and moderate prices add to Café Leffe's popularity. They also host a number of live music programs throughout the year.
