Compared to the other european cities Brussels is definitely not shopaholics heaven.
The best shops are in the Antoine Dansaert Street. My favorites:
Stijl (Dries Van Noten/An Demeulemeester/Raf Simons/Costume National/H. Lang...)
Idiz Bogam (vintage)
M. Margiela (not in that street but close to)
Secondhand music stores in Boulevard Anspach and Rue des Pierres (in this street check out Bernard Gavilan’store: vintage clothes, objects, furniture...)
The best records shop:
Caroline Music in Passage Saint Honore
In the Rue du Marche au Charbon:
Prive Joke (beautiful shop – streetwear)
Big brands are on Boulevard de Waterloo (Gucci, Vuitton, Armani, Hermes, Dior…)
Nathan for Men in Rue de Namur (Jill sander, Prada, Dior, Helmut L., Miu Miu…)
CLUBS: the best bets are
Mirano (in a old movie theater – house/electro)
If you’re gay(friendly), don’t miss the Strong Parties (every month in the beautiful residence Palace)
IMO Antwerp is beter for fashion.
Don't miss these stores:
Verso (huge store in an old bank building - all the big designers + beauty products)
Walter (Van Beirendoncks's shop + other edgy designers: Eley Kishimoto, Bless, Christophe Charron... etc)
Louis (Raf Simons, Margiela, Balenciaga...)
Dries Van Noten
Fragma (Hussein Chalayan, Marni…)
Closing Date (DSquared...)
The bookstore next the Fashion Museum is great
