Who said that Belgium is only beer, beer and beer? The Mattiz Bar wants is the evidence that in the hearth of the country you can get a good cocktail, and is doing its best to prove this. Located in the very centre of Leuven, the bar is the place to go for a drink if you do not feel like having a trappist: the owner claims it is the only bar in town without draft beer…. The drinks menu is impressive, counting both classics and creative creations, with an eye to the students’ drinking population of the city. The bar itself is a small gem, modern and trendy, with a nice philosophy behind: they claim that “they love what they do”. And, indeed: we love it too! The martini comes shaken, with Beefeater. Classic martini rate: 7.
