I'm arranging a weekend in Brussels for a group of 12 adults. On the Saturday night I'm trying to find a bar/club that has a restaurant attached to it where we can have something to eat first, then a bit of partying until late. Nothing too pricey/flashy - group age range is late 20's to mid 30's.
Anyone got any recommendations of somewhere suitable? Ideally centrally located (no more than 15 mins walk from Grande Place)
I've booked tomorrow night in a hotel on the Henegouwenkaai 33, Brussels, 1080. I need parking for tomorrow (late afternoon) and Monday all day.
So, I would like to know:
- can I park on the streets at or near this address and what would I have to pay?
- at this address, do I have anything to do with red, blue and green zones?
- at this address, do I have anything to do with the 'bewonerszone' where one would need a parking pass type A?
- what is the nearest P+R?

One more question: I see that in Belgium there are train tickets for seniors. If we are not from Belgium or from Europe, can we still buy those tickets?

Is there such a thing in Brussels? If so lead me to it. My friend and I are thinking of a a trip to Belgium (Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges, and Ghent) and possibly staying in Brussels if that is cheaper, and maybe a night or two in Bruges. We would like to stay in a B&B that has a cozy old-fashioned athmosphere, but are on a budget so the cheaper the better. Thanks.
Where's the best place to have a hot chocolate?
On January 8, I will be traveling with a group of 35 students to Brussels. I have reviewed everything I can find on metro/train tand tram. Wondering if anyone can help me make sure I understand. We need to travel from Bruxelles Centraal to Diegem and back in the morning and then Bruxelles Centraal to Vorst-Oost in the afternoon. My research says we should take the train. The Journey Planner indicates that the first journey requires a 5E ticket and the second journey requires a 6E. I believe they are indicating that it is a "Jump" ticket. I don't understand if these tickets are issued in advance or if we can buy them at the station. What type ticket do we need? Is a 5E Jump (1-day ticket) the correct ticket even though Diegem is a bit further? Can one ticket be used for both journeys in the same day? Can it be purchased at the station the day before or the day of? Any help would be appreciated. It's always best to have every detail down when 35 college students are following behind. Thank you!!!
Hello. Not really a "travel" question I guess. We (company I work for) are probably going to get a contract to work in Brussels. That means that we should send 10 or 12 persons to live there for 10 weeks, and if they are happy with us...more weeks. I would like to ask about a reputable or popular company in the web to hire flats, or even houses big enough in that area. Thank you very much.
My wife and I are coming in to Brussels to spend New Years. We're staying at the Conrad on Avenue Louise and we'd love to hear of suggestions for New Years Eve.

My wife and I will be going to Brussels and plan to stay there for a week. We are mid-sixties, love art, culture, history, architecture, food, etc. We will be staying Marriott near Grand Place. I have all travel books I need, however, I would like real people to make their suggestions on what we should consider doing for a week in Brussels, etc. Any thoughts about day trips (Brugges, Ghent, etc.) would be welcome. Also, local Brussels "must see's" would be welcome as well. A mix of restaurants (I am particularly fond of french fries (frittes)...mmm would be appreciated as well. I would like to thank anyone who responds in advance!!!
Thank you all for the great help on where to go. We finally decided Belgium mostly from a logistics perspective.

We will also go to Bruges for a couple of nights if anyone can help with the same. Thank you very much

Please help! I am traveling to Liege via Brussels. I need to know the best way to get their from the airport. Also, I will need transportation to the Ardennes Cemetery. I hope to have time to go back to Brussels for a day or so before I depart. If there is time, would I use the same train/bus? Thank you!
We are flying out of Brussels on the morning of Monday October 1st and need to return our rental car by 8:00am. Most of the reviews of the airport hotels I've read have been grim. Either too expensive for just a night's sleep or else cheaper with terrible service. Is there a nice hotel that's not TOO far from the airport maybe just outside the city a little bit (want to avoid city morning traffic)? Bonus for a place that doesn't charge an arm and a leg to park the car. Thanks!
We are staying in Amsterdam and taking a one day bus tour of Antwerp and Brussels. Most off our free time in Brussels will be spent by the Grote Market. Are there any chocolate shops around that square? I would like to bring pralines back with me as gifts. How expensive are they for a kilo? Can you also get them by the pound? Are there any doll shops in the area around the square? I would like to get a doll dressed in Belgium clothes. Thank you
