Welcome to one of Brussels' first "estaminet" (tavern). Opened at the end of the 19th Century, 1877 to be precise, à la Bécasse (The Woodcock) has maintained its authentic decor ever sin.The bar is located in the heart of Brussels, a few steps from the Grand Place and the Brussels Stock Exchange.

Our specialties are the famous Lambic, Gueuze and Kriek beers from our century-long partners, the Timmermans Brewers, served directly from the barrel in traditional clay jugs. The drinks menu also offers other options: tea, coffee, hot chocolate, aperitifs, wines and soft drinks.
Small meals are also offered with for example country sandwiches, appetizer portions (cheese, sausage ...) and also hot dishes (spaghetti Bolognese, croque monsieur etc..)

Looking forward to seeing you at à la Bécasse.
