Because of the reviews on TA. We decided to give this place a visit and we are really glad we did. Really authentic brussels bar and great selection of beers. The staff are helpful in choosing which beers to choose. My advice is to start your brussels beer experience in this bar it was great.

Just out of the more tourist area, this bar has fantastic feel and decor. Good menu and wonderful selection of lambics on tap. A great place to stop for a drink and a bite.

I love this bar in the center of Brussels. It has very authentic products and authentic service. Both are a bit rough (the Geuze sur lie is somewhat sour, a real drink of a century ago), and the personnel is a little rough as well, but that is as it should be in authentic Brussels place. Go there and have... More

An amazing bar, It has a vintage look about it but that is part of the attraction. The beer selection is wonderful and the staff were very friendly. Beer lovers must go there.

The beer is to die for, the location is convenient and the interior is special. Definitely worth dropping by, or staying in. It's a little piece of beer history.

What a fantastic place! We had a day out in Brussels, not totally sure of the best places to go we headed to the tourist information. The man behind the desk seemed to be wishing we were taking him with us. He suggested four bars and this was one of them. We loved it, the first we went to was... More

Absolutely authentic bar with great beers and a fantastic atmosphere. Great mixture of clientele, old, young, locals, visitors, Eurocrats, Eurosceptics and ourselves loving every minute. Not to be missed!

Lovely buzz in the place, traditional surroundings , great beer and simple food. The only downside being the temptation to stay through to the evening!

Popped in here for a pint and was pleasently surprised. It doesn't look much from the outside, and it retains the original decor inside. This is part of its charm. Table service, very friendly waitress. Good beer and reasonable prices too. Well worth a visit.

I've been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in and around Brussels through work over the years, and have developed a real affinity to the Belgians' appreciation of food and drink. I found La Mort Subite completely by chance, and was immediately taken by the feel of the place, right down to the cat asleep in a basket... More
