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.
Alongside regular drinks, Le Cercueil serves up cocktails in skull-shaped ceramic tankards – Corpse Urine and Demon Sperm being amongst the favourites. Tables are made from coffins, one rumoured to contain a real skeleton. Prices are a little above the norm.
