“Charles-Henri Sommelette”, Ixelles

Belgian artist Charles-Henri Sommelette has brought his signature black-and-white drawings to the Ixelles-based gallery Baronian Xippas. The show, which comprises a series of charcoal and lead pencil works, is both haunting and beautiful. Sommelette’s depictions of deserted gardens and country lanes play on ideas of loneliness.

Brussels Beer Project Bailli, Ixelles

The Brussels Beer Project has just opened its second venue on Rue du Bailli. Its airy interiors have transformed the former pub’s dark-and-dingy atmosphere, the building now flooded with light. As for the menu, expect a range of options, from passionfruit and mango brew Jungle Joy to the hoppy Wunder Lager. Whether you’re a craft beer aficionado or just in the mood for an unfussy drink, BBP is sure to have something for you.
