La Maison du Cygne

Former Marxist meeting place, now a restaurant

Save to my Account

La Maison du Cygne has pretty much run the gamut of all social strata in its long history. Originally the home of the Butcher’s Guild in around 1720, it went on to become host to Karl Marx’s New Year’s eve party in 1847/48 and the site of the launch of the Belgian Workers’ Party in 1885.

Since 2009 it has been an acclaimed restaurant, a regular in the Michelin Guide. Going from strength to strength after a takeover in 2013, expect good food but expect to pay a fair bit for it.
