As night falls the atmosphere in the wood changes taking on the colours of the night life. Organising a pleasant evening out here is very easy, start with dinner, then catch a performance at the Théâtre de Poche and why not finish the evening wiggling your hips in one of the local bars...
We, Belgians, love eating and choosing the right restaurant is crucial. These woods offer a surprising variety. In terms of restaurants, try out the recently renovated Chalet Robinson for its unforgettable views and reasonably priced food. A detour to the The Wood is a must to savour the fusion-style French cuisine. Another possibility, La Villa Lorraine, tucked away in an idyllic setting, lets you to taste fine traditional dishes in a real romantic atmosphere but you need to be reasonably well-off to dine here. After dinner, why not stay where you are for a little tipple before moving on to pastures new for a bit of dancing.
For dancing, you have various choices. For the VIPs among you there is Blash formerly the Redline. You have to be over 21 to enter and the dress code is "classy" but once inside the atmosphere is affectionate and, with a happy hour that continues to flow, your night is guaranteed to be fun. Close by there is also Les Jeux d'Hiver, a bit sloany but very popular with its turning table and summer Beach Club. There is also the alluring Lounge Bar and after hours restaurant at The Wood.
If you prefer combining a bit of culture with your dancing, you could head for Théâtre de Poche. For a comedy, drama or even a bit of romance, all the emotions are readily available at the Poche thanks to the wide range of performances, concerts and events.
If despite all that, you still can't something for you in the Bois de la Cambre, Brussels is a town that comes alive at night and where a myriad of nocturnal escapades await. Dancing, singing, enjoying yourselves, anything is possible if you trust BrusselsLife to lead you.
