- Café & authentic brasserie
Le Pot-au-Lait, nestled in the rue Soeurs-de-Hasque at the very heart of Liège, found its home in a delightful 19th-century building.
Early 70s, the Students Union of the University of Liège opened a café to discuss engaged ideas. They chose the cellar of a house near Rue Saint Rémy and, inspired by François Villon's poem Les Testaments, called it Le Trou Perrette. It sadly closed in 1973.
Another group of students decided, 2 years later, to open another Le Trou Perrette - just 300 m from its original location. A different kind of place where they could organise debates, themed days, concerts or even screen movies.
From Le Trou Perrette to Le Pot-au-Lait
For years, the bar became the key to underground culture in Liège and a a stage for memorable concerts. Renaud, Higelin and Chet Baker even played there. In 1979, at the peak of its success, Le Trou Perrette decided to extend onto a new bar, called Le Pot-au-Lait, in rerefence to La Fontaine's famous fable.
