Saint-Gilles, an up-and-coming area.

In the space of just a few months, Saint-Gilles has become the up-and-coming area of Brussels. This increasingly upmarket area has been swept up into the ultra-hip Brussels movement. 

It is now home to an increasing number of contemporary cafes and restaurants, trendy boutiques and art galleries. The Place Van Meenen forms the lively centre of this commune, with its markets, fairs and outdoor after-work drinks.

A brief history:
Originally called the 'Place du Sud', 'Place Maurice Van Meenen' is currently named after one of Saint-Gilles' mayors who was in office from 1893 to 1896 and from 1900 to 1909. The square was built quickly between 1895 and the beginning of the First World War. The town hall  stands in the centre of the square, and was designed in 1896 by architects Albert Dumont and Auguste Hebbelynck.
