Le Cercueil (English translation: “The Coffin”) is a horror-themed bar located right in the heart of Brussels at 12 Rue des Harengs. This is a side street leading from Grande Place. It has been open for over thirty years making it possibly the oldest horror-themed bar in the world.


The bar is extremely dark and atmospheric with goth music and papal speeches adding to the ambience.
