The Jeux d’Hiver restaurant, bar and night club hidden in the Bois de la Cambre is what we call “an institution” in Brussels. The dictionary explains: any familiar long-established fixture devoted to a particular cause. and they are devoted alright… to party till dawn.
I have frequented that place on and off for the past 20 years and keeps reinventing itself.
Today, they have a new game at les jeux
: “Bubble Games
” and yes champagne is flowing every Saturday night so much so you buy a bottle of Piper between 23H and 01H, you get one free to offer to your friends.
Now once a month there is a special Bubbles Games Patiorama where you sit down for a succulent meal with wine orchestrated to perfection by the exquisite Brussels caterer “L’Atelier de Bow”.
In December they served us baubles filled with yummy quinoa and super fresh smoked salmon, a delish duck salad , a grilled Italian vegetable salad and as mains: a warming spicy stew with rice and pasta with truffles. Needless to say there was plenty to eat. I didn’t try the white wine but the red was correct, and they were very generous.
The music did disappoint a tad, there were apparently several DJ’s but none really played anything you could really loose yourself in so people started to leave early, which is a shame. But i am told this will change, let’s keep fingers crossed as i sure love to dance!
So check out their Facebook page to stay tuned: the next Bubble Games Patiorama
will take place Saturday 6 February, see you all there.
