Den Boule is a bar with a history. More than 100years of tradition and still surviving on the same basic principles: spaghetti, beer, students, politeness and democratic prices. This place used to be 'home' for many students that became big Belgian entrepreneurs and all the relics that are hanging on the walls have their own story. A must visit, when... More

When I visit friends in Leuven, Boule is our favorite hangout. It just breaths academic history. You feel the presence of the student city everywhere. The interior is very cozy and old. They have a limited menu. All the food I tried is very nice. The pasta is really good. And of course the Belgian beers are good too.

During daytime this bar is packed with lawyers from the nearby courthouse and during nightime the bar is packed with university students. The interior is very cosy and authentic. The walls are packed with... More
