We need to go back in time for 80 years to explore the origin of this unusual name. About 1910 Mr. THEOPHILE VOSSEN ran an establishment called "LA COUR ROYALE". Amongst his many customers were a lot of employees working at the National Bank of Belgium. Those employees passed their time in the pub playing a dives game called "421". Before returning to the office , the employees played a quick last game and the one who lost was called the: "MORT SUBITE" or the sudden death.

Very soon this name became well known and when THEOPHILE VOSSEN moved to this actual address in 1928 he decided to call his pub: "AT THE MORT SUBITE". The same name as this own beers.

His sons and grandsons René and Jean-Pierre VOSSEN continued the tradition for more than 36 years.

Today, the fourth generation of the VOSSEN family Olivier and Bernard, continuous to serve you these delicious Gueuze beers in the same establishment which also retains the original 1928 decor.
This is a great place... Most of the crowd was older locals. Made Brenda and I feel like youngsters.

I love that place as well. Great omelettes for breakfast! Nothing like an omelette and a Gueuze to start the day off right.

Just about everyone speaks English. The Flemish and Walloons really don't like each other... If you speak French to a Flem... well they'd just prefer you speak English.

I just love the taps with the glass rinser on the bottom (the cross apparatus). They give your glass a rinse before pouring. That'd be a great feature in any bar.

I think it is unfortuante that it is "divided" and they don't seem to get along with eachother. I had a friend from the Wallon region. I met someone from the Flemish area and wanted to introduce them. When he asked me which region my friend is from, I responded "from Wallon" and he said "I can tell I'm not going to like him."
