Owner description: The liveliest square in the heart of Leuven. During the day, you can enjoy some drinks on one of the many terraces. At evening, the ideal place the have a dinner or a drink to unwind after a tiring day. The longest bar in Europe with over 30 bars and restaurants. Also the place for a lot of (musical) events during the year.

“Party party and party”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Great place to go out with friends until the next morning ! I personally like the Blokhut, the Plaza (1,5€/beer) and the Barvista (which is more a lounge/party nightclub)

“It was such a perfect day trip away from busy Brussels”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The square was filled with students and secluded bars with cheap, great Stella Artois. Visited for a day, short rider away from Brussels.
