Bruxelles in the dark

Thursday 29/09 til Sunday 02/10
in several bars & restaurants in Brussels

You must have heard about it. It’s all over the news and it’s the one thing every single person talks about: winter is here, and the rise of energy costs won’t be easy on anyone.

After the covid, the multiple lockdowns, shortage of staff and the inflation, the restaurant business is suffering again. So to raise their voice – but most importantly, to do in a good spirit – the pair Pia (Petit Mercado) and Pierre (Liesse) thought of a rather creative event, and decided to bring a few of their friends on board with them.

For a long weekend, from the 29th of September until the 2 of October, a few of our favorite restaurants will turn off both gas and electricity, and light their candles. Flame-cooked meals, candlelit tables, cocktails and wine in the dark – each restaurant participating will make the most out of the darkness to give you a fun and unforgettable experience. “Brussels in the Dark” is born.
