I am local - Leisure

Ambiance festive, un peu alternative ce weekend sur la Place Willems : les Winter Pop-ups, événements satellites des Plaisirs d’hiver du centre-ville, se sont installés à Laeken. Certes, on aurait plutôt rêvé d’un Marché de Noël au Parvis Notre Dame, ou encore d’une patinoire sur la Place Bockstael, mais la magie passe aussi par cette petite sœur un peu cachée des places plus connues de Laeken – et l’effet est en effet magique !

Tentes colorées, foodtrucks, jongleurs et magiciens du feu – et parmi eux le bar de Laeken.Brussels. Les petits sont fascinés par nos bracelets fluorescents et l’ambiance créée par la glace carbonique, tandis que les grands sont plutôt attirés par le punch d’hiver, le Glühwein maison (merci à Stijn !) et le genièvre que nous avons préparés à notre Laeken pop-up bar.

Que de belles rencontres !
