Brasserie Appelmans offers a wide range of dishes, to suit just about everybody’s taste. The recipes are developed and prepared by an experienced kitchen team. The menu gets updated multiple times a year – but the classics always reappear.

Unique location

Brasserie Appelmans & Absinthbar is a versatile brasserie, situated in the shadow of the cathedral. In addition to the typical appearance of the bars, the building offers an infinite number of possibilities. The different mezzanines give a spacious and cozy atmosphere. Three separate floors, all with their own quirky properties.

The ground floor has high ceilings and symbolizes everything the brasserie stands for. Upon entering, your attention is immediately drawn to the bar: a huge illuminated bottle rack with more than 140 different, beautiful spirits. In turn, the dark tables and the atmospheric lighting create a spacious and homely feeling.

In search of a warm atmosphere for a tête-à-tête? Mezzanine One is the ideal place. From here you can get a view over the entire brasserie. In addition, this is also an excellent place to be with a whole bunch of friends or other large groups. Our first mezzanine offers cosiness, warmth and a sufficient amount of privacy. Our great asset? The golden wall full of details of our favorite city.

Mezzanine Two is the quiet and cosy floor of our brasserie. This place can be completely separated from the brasserie if you so desire. Accessories such as a beamer and screen for meetings are of course available. This mezzanine can also be used, possibly in combination with the Private Bar, for dinners and private parties.
