Sometimes, we like to get away from the city centre to discover unseen corners of Brussels – and, of course, their restaurants and bars. So one night after strolling through Uccle, we decided to rest our feet and quench our thirst at the Barabar, which we had heard about from a couple of locals.
Located on the Western side of the Bois de la Cambre at Chaussee de Waterloo 862, it’s rather far away from … well … almost everything else. Also, it’s rather difficult to get there by public transport.
When we visited, the Barabar had the feel of a nice little local bar-around-the-corner – without the local drunks. Instead the tables were filled with rounds of friends and couples enjoying what seemed to be after-work drinks.
We treated ourselves to some decent happy-hour Mojitos, which were accompanied by nibblies (refilled when we ordered the second round of drinks and then once again after that – definite plus in my book!).
All in all: nothing that would make you take the trip across the city just to drink here – but make sure to pop in when you’re in the area.
