It was the arrival of the Bar du Matin which ultimately revitalised the district around Place Albert, which had resisted the night life dynamic. Frédéric Nicolay opened his doors two years ago and since then this has become a hot spot for night revellers. It’s more than a local bar and attracts a cosmopolitan and curious clientele.

Eclectic music


The Matin gets going at night time, but you can come here at any time during the day. Prices are affordable and the location is ideal, midway between Uccle, Forest and Saint-Gilles. I particularly like the decor, which is dominated by warm wooden features, a design that is both airy and stylish. Every Monday from 9 pm onwards, acoustic music is played to great effect, making for a relaxing and gentle mood. Thursday evenings are for concerts, while on Fridays and Saturdays a DJ sets the stage alight from 10 pm. Each week manages to pack in a selection of musical moods.

A concept that’s simple yet effective


The Bar du Matin is not Nicolay’s first enterprise, and his approach seems to work. Place Albert has really changed since it opened. The bar is rarely empty and attracts an interesting clientele, confirming the trend of leaving the city centre in search of new haunts.



Open every day from 8 am to 1 am midweek and 2 am on weekends.

My fashion job takes me around the world throughout the year. I love flea markets and hunting for antiques year round, meeting up with friends at art show openings, going to fashion shows and being first to discover a new restaurant.
My little extra: introducing people to the "arty" and underground side of Brussels!"
