ABOUT TASTE BRUSSELS

We are hub.brussels, a Brussels Business Support Agency. Launched on 1st January 2018, it is the result of the merger between Atrium.brussels, Brussels Invest & Export and Impulse.brussels. Thanks to our expertise in Retail, we THINK our city, we help entrepreneurs OPEN their shops, and we BOOST our districts through promotional actions and urban beautification. Taste.Brussels is our latest project. We hope you’ll find it to your taste.

Be your own boss, bring your own business, and build your own Brussels

We also act as ambassadors of our city, representing Brussels’ fantastic business assets abroad. This is the aim of the Taste.Brussels project.

Brussels has many facets: there’s so much more to it than the European bureaucracy cliché. To the untrained eye, Brussels seems like a puzzle made out of dozens of small areas, each sporting its own identity and features. But let it grow on you and you’ll begin to see common threads become more and more obvious.

Don’t pay attention to clichés: taste Brussels for yourself

SHOP IN BRUSSELS

Try to think of Brussels as a cooking grandma who has travelled the world to discover all its different cuisines, and made them her own. She’d probably prepare her grandkids a meal of her own creation. They might find it a bit weird at first. But once they get a taste of it, they’ll never want to eat from another chef’s kitchen ever again.

In the end, our job is really not that hard: we only have to convince you to give Brussels a taste. Past that, the city’s flavours do the rest. If they don’t succeed in making you want to stay, nothing will. It would be a pity though. And your loss!
