Dansaert : the trendy
Ultra-cool , vibrant, buzzing and stylish: the Dansaert is a eyecatcher !
This area extends from "la Bourse" to "la porte de Flandres", on both sides of the street Dansaert. This popular and industrious portion of the city gradually conquered the last few decades by the fashion circles and trendy bars.
Rue Antoine Dansaert remains the ultimate big names with a scattering of small creative shops in the adjacent streets. The arty and essentially Flemish trend that bathes the whole neighborhood takes a cosmopolitan touch, from easy-going or very sharp.
