News Café, Brussels

This is my last sketch from my day in Brussels. Although I’m really glad that we now have a smoking ban in our pubs and restaurants here in the UK, it made me feel quite nostalgic to sit in a smoky bar. And in the spirit of nostalgia I ordered a kir, which when I was a young art student was my drink of choice when excitedly feeling I was part of the bohemian arty crowd drinking at the French pub in Soho. You had to be in the know then, the delightfully different un-English drinking establishment presided over by Gaston Berlemont was the place to spot bohemians such as Francis Bacon and others but it didn’t have a sign outside.
