Alcohol consumption in public in central Brussels to be banned from February 2020

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The consumption of alcohol during the night in central Brussels will be banned from 1 February over a six-month test phase.

This measure is intended to combat problems related to excessive alcohol consumption, such as fights and disturbances of public order in the pedestrian area around the Brussels Stock Exchange.

Alcohol consumption will be prohibited from midnight to 6:00 AM, in the zone reaching from Place Fontainas to Place De Brouckère, including some adjacent streets.

People who do not respect the ban will risk a €350 fine. However, cafes will be able to continue serving alcoholic drinks on their terraces, and the night-shops can also continue to sell them.
