At the bottom of a large classic 19th century building, the Falstaff café was created in 1903 and decorated by carpenter Emile Houbion (collaborator of Victor Horta), in a curious styles mixture.

It presents Art-Nouveau ornaments for the two round shaped windows and the front door, while the marquise is in American Art-Deco glass. Art-Nouveau stained-glass windows adorn the upper angles of the windows. The vertical sign is typically Art-Deco.

The interior offers a mix of styles layered between Art-Nouveau and 19th century Eclecticism.

It remains one of the rare testimonies of the great cafes of the early 20th century. Monument listed in October 2000.

To discover the interior, just push the door and sit down for a coffee or a delicious fresh Belgian beer!
