The HQ of the Belgian surrealist movement in the 1920s, this quaint bar has managed to retain its old-world charm. This is the place to come to experience a particularly rare atmosphere rather than to drink yourself into oblivion.
Hergé was a frequent visitor to this bar with its illustrious past, where he came to enjoy a refreshing gueuze. This was the meeting place for the figureheads of Belgian surrealism of the twentieth century at the time of René Magritte, but it was also a favourite watering hole for Pierre Alechinsky, Louis Scutenaire and Jacques Brel. Today, the café is still a favourite among the artistic and literary crowd.
Since May 2011, the interior courtyard of the Fleur en Papier Doré displays a comic strip fresco by the cartoonists De Marck and De Wulf (Stam et Pilou).
Open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.; WE 3 a.m.
