Thrift shop in Brussels

Thrift shops are an emblem of Brussels. You can find them in every street, each one different from the other. I've selected 10 thrift shops which are worth seeing, in my opinion.

1. Think Twice

Rue du vieux marché aux grains, 57, 1000- Brussels

One of the most famous thrift shop in the capital: stocks change every month, that's why customers are faithful to it.



2. Foxhole Vintage

Rue des renards, 6, 1000- Brussels // Rue des Riches-Claires, 4, 1000- Brussels

With two shops in the Capital, Foxhole suits to the greatest number.



3. Les enfants d'Edouard

Avenue Louise, 175, 1000- Brussels

This shop proposed luxury brands at low prices, the dreamed place for collectors



4. Lady Dandy

Rue du Pape, 81, 1000- Brussels

Another luxury brands reseller.

5. Episode 

Rue de la violette, 28, 1000- Brussels

This chain is implanted in Belgium and in the neighboring countries, it's recognized for its quality articles. They come from donations.



6. Look 50

Rue de la Paix, 10, 1000- Brussels

If you want vintage clothes, you'll be served ! Sunglasses, shoes, hat, men and women clothes..


7. Melting pot Kilo 

Rue Haute, 154, 1000- Brussels

15euros/kg.. what else ?



8. Idiz Bogam 

Rue haute, 180, 1000- Brussels

For the luxury brands followers..



9. L'exception 

Rue de Stassart, 102, 1000- Brussels

This shop is aptly named..

Thursday night Afterwork

No matter if you are a professional or no, Thursday after-work are foolproof in the Capital. You have many places where you can take a drink and enjoy the music with your friends and your colleagues.

In every single place I want to share with you, there is generally a lot of people. But if you like meet new people and the excitement of the city, this blog post is made for you.

The first square I have to talk about is the Luxembourg one.  At one minute from the hotel, this is the place to be on Thursday. So many bars and musics, and good mood is always there. 

Our trainee's crush ? The Café du Luxembourg, with a lovely staff and very good cocktails (and atmosphere, by the way).


 You can also enjoy good music there. There are many others bars as the Grapevine, the Ketj.. it's always a good idea to be at the Luxembourg Square.



In the Leopold district, you can also take a drink at the Grand Central, near Schuman.


At Flagey Square, two bars share the limelight: the Bar du Marché & The Café Belga. Nice atmosphere are the key words. Completely different, but you can move to the other one when you want. It's an inevitable place.

The Cimetière d'Ixelles is another place for partying. The Tavernier and The Waff bar are here to welcome you.

And the next place I want to introduce you is Bourse. Two famous places ? The Halles St Géry and the Coaster bar.


And you, what is your favorite place to enjoy your Thursday?
