This cafe offers the full experience, with an array of Belgian beers on offer to complement the authentic cuisine on the menu.

Escape your desk at lunchtime and head there for lunch or head there after work for some drinks with friends. 

Get your dancing shoes on and head to The Occidental on a Friday or Saturday night from 9pm-midnight for live music. Or, on a Sunday afternoon enjoy the best of Belgian beer, a few bar snacks and a great easy listening band to wind down the weekend.
