Nightlife and Entertainment In Brussels - Bars, Clubs, Theatre, Cinemas and a lot more!  

Brussels nightlife

Brussels can be a bustling and vibrant city at night offering a wide selection of clubs, bars, theatre, cinema and cultural events. Whether you fancy dancing the night away at the hip Montecristo nightclub near Grand Place, take in some  opera at Theatre de la Monnaie or just watch a mainstream film at Kinepolis, there’s always something to do in Brussels when the sun goes down.

  When you’re out and about in Brussels at night, bear in mind that the public transport system only runs till 12.30 – it’s replaced by a night bus service which isn’t remotely as regular.

The Club Scene

Most club/bars in Brussels have free entry, and even those that charge tend to be fairly reasonable to get in. There tends to be a wide selection of music types - live music and various genres including indie, rock, techno, salsa, dance and more.

Drinks tend to go for similar prices in most places and as you would expect, shots and cocktails tend to fetch fancier prices.

Around Grand Place there’s the notable Montecristo offering a mix of latin, salsa and mainstram music. Also nearby is You which plays techno and house style music and is spread over two levels. If you’re looking for live music in and around Grand Place there’s the lively Canoa Quebrada and Soixante.

In the Upper Town, the Palais des Beaux Arts holds a variety of live musical events and Botanique often hosts rock concerts. The Lower Town has a larger variety of clubs and bars including Le Bodega, The Fuse and Café Central.

There are several additional bars, cafes & clubs dotted around Brussels, notably in the St Giles, avenue Louise & Ixelles locations.


If you’re into major Hollywood blockbusters then Brussels has a good selection of cinemas that will appeal. There are also a number of vintage & art cinemas showing classics & art-type presentations. In short, there’s probably something here for you, no matter what type of films interest you.

The major Hollywood type films run at UGC De Brouckere & Kinepolis. If independent Art features is more your style, there’s Actors Studio on petite rue des Bouchers as well as Vendom along chaussee de Wavre. Additional cinemas are available too showing a range of contemporary, classic & independent films – these include Arenberg Galleries, Flagey Studios and Nova.

Opera & Theatre

There’s a rich choice available to those who enjoy classical music. Brussels is the home of three impressive opera houses – Theatre de la Monnaie along place de la Monnaie is Brussels most famous opera house. The city also has the Conservatoire Royal de Musique and Palais des Beaux Arts.

Brussels also enjoys a vibrant theatre scene – the city enjoys several fine theatres that show a wide variety of plays, musicals and dances. Theatre 140 (along ave Eugene Plasky) offers a variety of English performances as does Kaai Theatre (place Sainctelette) and perhaps the most English of all – The Warehouse (located on rue Waelham).
