Le Bateau-Lavoir Brussels Reviews
Jan 15, 2007
Every Tuesday and Thursday evening I have the possibility to visit my favorit café where I can sit and read, listen to french music in a very relaxing enviroment. The café is almost always empty in the evening when I visit it since it is primarily a lunch place, but I absolutely don't mind because it is so relaxing after a hard day to sit here and enjoy their excellent salads or whatever - having a cold beer a looking in french written newspapers. The service is great, people are very sweet and calm.
You can be lucky to go in on a day when they are having a concert, you never know. There are nice art on the walls and sometime there is a debate forum going on - and everybody are just sweet and smiling. This is a very relaxed place and I hope not that too many are reading this and come by to fill this place up because it would be a pity:-)
See U Soon
By the way:
Le Bateau-Lavoir was a squalid block of buildings in Montmartre, Paris situated at 13 Rue Ravignan (Place Emile Goudeau). The place is famous because at the turn of the 20th century a group of outstanding artists lived and rented artistic studios there. First artists started to settle at the Bateau-Lavoir in the 1890s but after 1914 they started to move elsewhere (mainly Montparnasse).
The name of the place means the laundry-boat because it resembled boats of laundry women. Indisputably the most famous resident of the place was Pablo Picasso (1904-1909) where he lived with his dog Frika.
