Sometimes you just need to let loose early in the week. That’s right, Brussel is bustling even on a Tuesday eve. Networking. Entertainment. Music. Nice people. These are Bar Mardi’s core.


La Terrasse O2

Every day until July 20th, La Terrasse O2 is the place place to chill our and enjoy the summer in Brussels.  Come and enjoy a glass of bubbles under the palm tree, dinner next to the swimming pool and long hot summer nights!


Go a little crazy with Coucou Brussels

Add a little chill and cocktail to your sightseeing with Coucou Brussels and their outdoor hotspots all over town. From Cinquantenaire to the Cathedral of Saint Michael and Saint Gudula, pull up a beach chair and marvel at these sights as you hang back with a cold one while listening to music. This is the perfect place to cool down and windup for a fun night out.


Let the games begin at Bar Eliza

This sassy little hotspot in the middle of Koekelberg’s Elisabeth Park is just what the locals ordered. Once upon a time an empty pavilion, Bar Eliza now wows with renewed vivaciousness and crowd-drawing events. Play some cards over a beer, swing by for outdoor movie screenings or bust a move at one of their concerts.

Play hard – Play Label harder

Take your exploration to new heights and enjoy Brussels from the top at Play Label’s pop up rooftop bar. Created by five friends, this hangout is a local favorite for soaking up the sun over cool cocktails. Enter at Crosly Bowling between the fashionable Sablon and hip Marolles, head straight to the top and order a Pimm’s Pitcher. You’re welcome.

These pop up bars all over Brussels make it easy to “spontaneously” pop in for an evening of unplanned debauchery. Sometimes, the moments you didn’t plan for become the most memorable and most fun and Radisson RED, Brussels will keep you close and in the know.
