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.

Surrounded by bars all selling cheap halves of Stella and leffe. Very lively and full of students playing drinking games!

Great place to people watch. But beware - smoking is only allowed outside now, so if you enjoy a coffee in an outside cafe, you may feel unhappy about all the smokers.

it is great to sit outside in the Metropole on the west side of the place. The last time friends from Nederland came to visit we had lunch here. And we polished off two pints of Leffe each. Life Is Good!
