Degustation tour : Taverns that tell of the splendour of Art Nouveau and Art Deco
Organised by Brussels Chatterguides.
The pre war Brussels pubs offer a wide variety of atmospheres and some of them have kept their Art Nouveau or Art Deco decoration. The stained glass windows, elegant curved woodwork, precious fabrics, mirrors and shining counters are still witnesses of the Belle Epoque, the Roaring Twenties & Jazzy Thirties. They also tell about the evolution of the trends and tastes: from the well-lit, big & noisy brasseries of the turn of the century to the more discreet, cosy and intimate bars of the interwar period.
