Where to Grab a Drink in Mons? (May 2024)

updated May 2024

Mons social scene and nightlife is appropriately filled with venues to enjoy a drink outdoors such as street drinks and partying in the middle of traffic. But it is a habit in Belgium to drink on the street or on sidewalks and it is even more difficult to reach the inside of the venue because the entrance is packed with people.

There are spots all over the city where you can enjoy a beer, a glass of wine or cocktails and some nibbles. It’s called ‘apéro’ in French…and some are so long that you will be not able to go to a restaurant for a meal after. Belgium locals are very friendly so do not afraid to meet and have drinks with them.
