We grabbed a few beers and the cheese and veggie plate while here. Didn’t catch a show. But it’s a great cute little bar. And a historic piece of Brussels. It’s a great place to grab a beer

The staff was slow and inefficient. Spent their time on the newly arrived beer-tasting group instead of taking our orders

A relaxed bar with great history and decor. Many posters of the Marionette shows line the walls, along with the original stage and two Marionette puppets. Very friendly staff, there’s free WiFi and a lovely cat who lives in the bar. Good variety of beers...More

A bit hidden but 50 mts from Grand Place you have Toon, a muppets theatre steeped in history. Order a Kwak and enjoy the show

From the very moment you enter this place, you're taken back to a different time in Brussels. The little bar is very charming and rustic without even trying. The show itself is very entertaining, despite my inability to speak French. Its just something to admire,...More

I used to live in Bruxelles and this used to be one of my fave places to visit. It is NOT the same if you go here and don’t buy a Kwak!!! :). It’s best to go when it’s a bit busier...coz it has an...More

This is a bit of a hidden gem just off the Grande Place. Well worth looking out. Entry is down a narrow passage marked theatre but this is also entry to a great bar. The bar is located in an old (very old) puppet theatre....More

Don't be fooled by the theatre sign above the alley. As well as an old puppet theatre this place is a really cool old bar. Even has a cannonball embedded in the wall. Very small bar with mainly bench seating. Brick walks, wooden beams and...More

Hello, Yes, sure, all our shows are ok for children from 7 years old. The show is "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" (we're getting close to Halloween). It's in French so you may like to check the story on Wikipedia. You can book your... More
