Home to the Turner Prize winning Douglas Gordon’s ‘Empire’ artwork, Tontine Lane has long been intriguing to those passing by, but until now only the city’s art students and surrounding residents have had access to the space.

As well as Heverlee’s original Pils lager, guests can sample the limited edition Heverlee Witte (a wheat beer for summer) and brand new varieties of Heverlee, which will be revealed upon opening. In true Belgian style, the 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.

A full entertainment schedule will be announced at launch, 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.
