It's definitely worth visiting his bar, though it can be rather crowded at times. Not the best place for a quiet drink but a good beer selection makes up for it.

La Mort Subite not only has a nice choice of local beers on offer yet it is this original Beer Hall's history and charm that really makes it a great place to enjoy a beer.

A pleasant, casual place that has been owned by the same family for years! It's a nice place for a drink or a snack, just to sit back and watch the crowd. We visit this place every time we are in Brussels!

This bar should be part of Brussels' 20th Century History. When you walk in you are faced with a long hall of a room filled with narrow tables. The decor is, as the menu explains, original 1928. There is only table service by mature staff...More

In Brussels it is must to go after dinner to Mort Subite to take one for the road. Atmosphere is great as well as Belgium beers.
