Hidden in plain sight, in the heart of Glasgow's Merchant City sits our authentic Belgian café bar, popping up just in time for the Merchant City Festival.
From today until the 2nd of August only, an unassuming loading bay in the mysterious, neon lit Tontine Lane (locked to the public, until now) will transport you to our hometown of Leuven, the world’s beer capital.
Home to the Turner Prize winning Douglas Gordon’s ‘Empire’ artwork, the lane has long been intriguing to those passing by, but in the last few years only the city’s art students and surrounding residents have had access to the space.
Now it will be a truly unique place to enjoy our original Pils lager, alongside the limited edition Heverlee Witte (our wheat beer for summer) and two brand new varieties of Heverlee, which will be revealed upon opening. In true Belgian style, our bar will serve ‘beer flights’, serving a taster glass of each type of Heverlee.
A range of lesser known brews are also being imported specially for the bar, giving customers the opportunity to explore Belgian beer culture in more depth.
Watch this space for news on our entertainment schedule, including celebrations on the 21st July to mark Belgian National Day, Belgian beer workshops, DJ sets and live mural painting from Belgian street artist DZIA. Esteemed Leuven chef Wim Dejonghe will help curate the menu and make an appearance at the café bar to host beer pairing sessions.
See you there!
