There are some pubs for international students like "Wink" and "Geckoos". However, I recommend trying "Dutch places" like "Het vliegend varken" or "De Verbeelding". The visit to the Stella Artois factory in the very Leuven is highly recommended. If you really like beer, then make Belgian friends and ask them about the "cantus". This traditional ritual from the middleages is something no student should miss!

best cafe: de werf (cheap but good quality food and drinks), ron blacks (good atmosphere to drink cocktails at night, de rector (good place to just dance and chill). at the grote market there are a lot of bars so at night time, you could just have your pick. there was a fair during winter for a month and it was nice.

The best places to go out at night are in the Oud Markt or go to Vila Ernesto (a cuban bar). My favourite cafe is Dwerf, to drink something warm and talk with friends. Do not miss the weekly market every saturday and the Christmas market, in December. Be informed about the events at STUK!

Bar Wink, Geko┤s, Bar Apero. The best cafe au lait at Cafe Metropol and the best "fritur" (chips) opposite this cafe in Oudet market. Not miss the typical belgian "cantus", student elections,christmas market and during summer always nice to sitt at the terraces of oudet market.
