The diverse and multicultural city of Brussels has a thriving wine market considering it’s mostly known for its superb Belgian Beer cafes. The number of Brussels wine bars have increased over the years as the city, also known as the capital of Europe, thanks to its central location and neighboring wine producing countries of Germany, Luxembourg and France.
The Brussels wine bars are located throughout the city, and away from the tourist hotspots of Grand Place, Manneken Pis and Galeries Royal Saint Hubert.
