Historic Bar Tour
June 13, 2017
A la Mort Subite
Rue Montagne-aux-Herbes Potagères 7 Warmoesberg
Join other beer and Brussels lovers as we embark on another Second Tuesday Historic Bar Tour social hour. Traveling toward central Brussels, we will visit A la Mort Subite, a bar that has been in existence for over a century. On their website:
“We need to go back in time for more [than] 100 years to explore the origin of this unusual name. About 1910 Mr. THEOPHILE VOSSEN ran an establishment called “LA COUR ROYALE". Amongst his many customers were a lot of employees working at the National Bank of Belgium. Those employees passed their time in the pub playing a dives game called "421". Before returning to the office, the employees played a quick last game and the one who lost was called the: "MORT SUBITE" or the sudden death.” (http://alamortsubite.com/en/)
